TENDING ROSES by Lisa Wingate

"The lessons that most enrich our lives often come at unexpected moments and from unlikely places. That's what Kate Bowman learns when she moves temporarily--with her husband, Ben and baby son --to her grandmother's Missouri farm.. She arrives at a time of crisis and indecision - struggling with the demands of being a new mother, and not-so-new wife, and a well-meaning but often impatient granddaughter. The family has assigned her and Ben the job of convincing Grandma Rose, who's become increasingly stubborn and forgetful, to move off the land that means so much to her and into a nursing home. Kate knows such a change would break her grandmother's heart. But what is right for her grandmother? And what is right for her family and herself?

Just when Kate despairs of finding answers, she discovers her grandmother's journal. A beautiful handmade notebook, it is full of heartwarming stories that celebrate the virtue of patience, the power of love and the importance of family, friendship, and faith. Stories that make Kate see her life- and her grandmother- in a completely new way... and lead her toward a new, more meaningful future..."

Great Book! I would keep it but it is literally falling apart! This was a well read book, apparently! Highly recommended!
