What I’m Reading: Tending Roses

I just finished up the audio book Tending Roses by Lisa Wingate.  I’ve read several other books by this author and was happy to see a new selection from her that I had not read.

Tending Roses by [Wingate, Lisa]

All in all a good book.  All of Wingate’s books, to date, that I’ve read have been good.  They always seem to have an underlying message to stop and appreciate life. This one focused on being content with what you have.  I need to be reminded of that from time to time.  They remind me a  Nicholas Sparks book…all good, a little predictable, good people books.  Perfect for a feel good book.

Here’s what Amazon had to say:
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…

Amazon reader gave the book 4.6 stars…I’ll say 4.3.  It was a good listen and I really liked it just as I have all of her books but as I said, the books are a little predictable.

  1. Have you listened to any books from the Maisie Dobbs series by Jacqueline Winspear? They are set in England during WWII. Maisie is a dectective and psychologist. I have found them very good to listen to.

    Good reads from the same author are somewhat predictable. But we all get set into a pattern of how we live. We get kicked out of the pattern when life throws a wrench into the works. So enjoy your stories and report to us about them. One bookworm to another. Thanks
