What a delightful book. Patti has a way of describing the characters, giving them each their own individuality, character and culture.

Although the main character has more friends with deep wisdom than I could ever imagine in real life, she is given guidance through their faith without preaching, but through life's experiences.

I do garden, but not to the extent of this character. The description of flower types and colors was easily skimmed over or skipped.

It was a refreshing change from some Christian fiction that bases friendship on touch rather than relationship and rules rather than life's application of the rules.
I could relate to the struggles of growing teenage boys who struggle to be men but act so much like boys sometimes. And the struggle of the mom who must continue to respect them into their manhood when they disrespect her.

I will look for other books by this author. She's a keeper. ( )

This book picks up right where book one leaves off. Mibby Garrett needs her son to understand her, her business to pick up (she designs gardens) and a man (although she would never admit that last one). It is a nice read. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0764229389, Paperback)

Mibby Garrett isn't asking for much, just a white knight to rescue her from lonely widowhood, her faltering garden design business, and an unrelenting drought. Or she'd settle for a super dad to guide her son, Ky, through the harrowing years of adolescence. Instead, her free-spirited mother and acerbic sister show up on her doorstep, only magnifying her loneliness. Mentor and friend Louise reminds Mibby that God's blessings flow during droughts of the land and droughts of the heart. Can Mibby put her confidence in Him and discover what it means to be always green and growing? Garden Gates Book 2.

"The Garden Gates series continues with a glimpse at how God's promises lead one woman through a season of loneliness. Both thought-provoking and fun, this second-chance romance features colorful characters, light-hearted humor, and moving spiritual themes"--Provided by publisher.… (more)
