When the Meadow Blooms by Ann H. Gabhart

 

If any place on God's earth was designed to help one heal, it is Meadowland. Surely here, at her brother-in-law's Kentucky farm, Rose and her daughters can recover from the events of the recent past--the loss of her husband during the 1918 influenza epidemic, her struggle with tuberculosis that required a stay at a sanatorium, and her girls' experience in an orphanage during her illness. At Meadowland, hope blooms as their past troubles become rich soil in which their faith can grow.

Dirk Meadows may have opened his home to his late brother's widow and her girls, but he keeps his heart tightly closed. The roots of his pain run deep, and the evidence of it is written across his face. Badly scarred by a fire and abandoned by the woman he loved, Dirk fiercely guards his heart from being hurt again. But it may be that his visitors will bring light back into his world and unlock the secret to true healing.

Bestselling author Ann H. Gabhart explores the tender places within the human heart in this character-driven story of trusting God to turn our burdens into something beautiful.

My Review


 
When I saw a book by Ann Gabhart, I knew this would be a gift, and she did not disappoint!

Life's hard trials play a big part in this wonderful book! Set in the 1920's in Kentucky, and we are following the Meadows family. First a very ill mother who has to leave her two daughters at an orphanage with hopes that it will only be a few weeks. Then a man who risked his life for the woman he loves, and ends up very scared, both inside an out.

We walk with this family and are there for their heartwarming journey to healing!

I received this book though Net Galley and the Publisher Revell, and was not required to give a positive review.
