about

Leota’s garden was once 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.

Now, eighty-four-year-old Leota Reinhardt is alone, her beloved garden in ruins. All her efforts to reconcile with her adult children have been fruitless, and she voices her despair to a loving Father, her only friend.

Then God brings a wind of change through unlikely means: one, a college student who thinks he has all the answers; the other, the granddaughter Leota never hoped to know. But can the devastation wrought by keeping painful family secrets be repaired before she runs out of time?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved it! After reading and loving 'Redeeming Love' by Francine Rivers, I didn't imagine that I could enjoy another book by her as much. I was wrong. This book I enjoyed just as much (possibly even more) as 'Redeeming Love'. First, let me just say how refreshingly real this novel was. There are so many books that are published purely on entertainment value without a message or hint of reality to it. I will be the first to admit that I read those books just as much as anyone else. But that makes these books with such depth, emotions, and conflicts even more valuable. This novel was amazingly well written. The details of everything were perfect making the reader feel as if she was in Leota's cottage or her garden. Each character was well thought of and created to have a unique personality of their own (even if it was an unflattering personality...) The majority of the characters were even quite lovable. Usually I find there's one resounding favourite but I became quite attached to Leota, Corban, Annie, Susan, and even Sam. The novel encompassed a string of emotions whether it be humor from Leota's sarcasm or hankering towards Corban to sadness from relationships that had been broken from secrets. This book was also eye opening towards the internal feelings and thoughts of a person that is getting older with those resulting difficulties. I do work in the healthcare system and I work with the elderly population daily but this book gave me more to think about. It's hard to describe but this book reminded me of the compassion and empathy that I continuously have to have and share, and not let that get forgotten. It truly is hard to put in words just how impacting this book is. I know it will sit with me for awhile and I will be thinking about it. Definitely recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Leota's Garden Really good book. I enjoyed it very much. Just one thing...I didn't like the way grandma Leota died. I am a nurse and patients are well taking of and we make sure to know who is visiting them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Heart-rendingly real Francine Rivers' style of writing is beautiful, soulful and brutally honest: bearing some of the most poignant situations many of us are faced with in "real life". We are offered scenarios that make us think, reflect and question our own reactions and approach to life's challenges - and Leota's Garden is no different. It is heart-rendingly real, with multiple lessons beautifully crafted from inspired words. I think each of us will take away at least one important lesson from this book. Francine is truly a mouthpiece for God's teaching...
