Publisher's Summary

From the New York Times best-selling author of Before We Were Yours comes a heartfelt novel about the bonds of family and the power of second chances. 

When Kate Bowman temporarily moves to her grandmother’s Missouri farm with her husband and baby son, she learns that the lessons that most enrich our lives often come unexpectedly. The family has given Kate the job of convincing Grandma Rose, who’s become increasingly stubborn and forgetful, to move off her beloved land and into a nursing home. But Kate knows such a change would break her grandmother’s heart.  

Just when Kate despairs of finding answers, she discovers her grandma’s journal. A beautiful handmade notebook, it is full of stories that celebrate the importance of family, friendship, and faith. Stories that make Kate see her life - and her grandmother - in a completely new way...

Loved it!

This was not only a great story, but the narration was good too. Loved hearing the different voices. This was another book I couldn’t wait to get back too. A lot of lost life lessons/advice included in the story, which was great.

Remarkable

If you are a fan of the movie "fried green tomatoes", or if you enjoyed "Before We Were Yours" then you will enjoy this family drama. It reminded me of my own family, and my grandma with giggles and tears. Looking forward to the next book.

Sappy for this one

I’ve read almost all of Lisa Wingates books and for the most part enjoyed them. I’m not sure if this reader ruined the book for me or the story itself was just that sappy. Very disappointing.

too sappy

This story was way too sappy for me, and so predictable. Just boring. And the reader was AWFUL. I finished it, but it was a struggle
