A noted gardener from snobbish Westchester County in New York, finds a stranger, obviously ill, sprawled near her delphiniums. She takes him into her house and cares for him an entire week and only later learns who he really is. An investigative reporter uncovers the secret week, and both Linda and her guest become a spectacle in the eyes of the world. This series of uncomfortable, off-putting situations unaccountably points to an overarching glory, rising out of pain, tragedy, and love.
Gustafson’s literary treatment of a theme of redemption and restoration is set in a literal garden of delights. It is both a parable and a provocative contemporary story, crafted by a writer who is skilled, precise, and imaginative in her use of words.
~Latayne C. Scott, award-winning author of A Conspiracy of Breath and Latter-day Cipher.
God’s grace and providence govern every episode of this tale of searching and sacrifice that will leave the reader’s soul enriched.
~Brenda Cox, Tethered: The life of Henrietta Hall Shuck,
A story our weary world desperately needs. . . An intense and personal exploration of one woman’s journey of faith and the struggle to follow God’s leading in this modern world of ours.
~ Rachel L. Miller, co-author of the Bestselling Windy Gap Wishes series.
Wow; just w.o.w. I wish I could give this unparalleled story ten stars. . . . It’s the story of two people who cannot fall in love but do, and it’s absolutely nothing like the typical romance.
—Anne Baxter Campbell, Blessed by Time
