Once Leota's garden was a place of beauty - where flowers bloomed and hope thrived. It was her refuge from the deep wounds inflicted by a devastating war, her sanctuary where she knelt before a loving God and prayed for the children who couldn't understand her silent sacrifices. At 83, Leota is alone; her beloved garden is in ruins. All her efforts to reconcile with her adult children have been fruitless. She voices her despair to a loving Father, her only friend. And God brings a wind of change through unlikely means....

When I first started listening I didn't hear Francine's usual strong Christian message. Her books always have some theme and message, I wondered why this one didn't. Then I felt like I could see Jesus bend down and write in the sand. I got it! Don't miss this book; read it and wait for it. Great reader too she drew attention to the characters not herself.
