The Care and Handling of Roses with Thorns
I recently found a new book at the library called "The Care and Handling of Roses with Thorns" by Margaret Dilloway. It is a story about Gal, a high school teacher who loves breeding roses and needs a kidney transplant. Her niece shows up on her doorstep needing a home. Both of them struggle in their relationships with others. This beautiful story is about them learning and healing as they face the misunderstandings and the hard experiences in their lives. I love the compassion and hope with which the prickly people in this book are written.
