Summary

From the New York Times best-selling author of Before We Were Yours comes a heartfelt novel about the bonds of family and the power of second chances. 

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...

Loved it!

This was not only a great story, but the narration was good too. Loved hearing the different voices. This was another book I couldn’t wait to get back too. A lot of lost life lessons/advice included in the story, which was great.

Inspiring and heartwarming

I have come to love reading Lisa Wingate‘s novels. I am inspired by the wisdom of her characters, and I always come away feeling that I am better for having known them. They make me feel good, and brighten my day. This one compares to the prayer box, And after listening to it as an audiobook I Purchased a paperback copy for my mother as a gift.

Pretty good, message was worth the listen

Wasn’t my favorite, but I gained a lot of respect for the characters. The story forced me, as a mother, to reflect on myself and my life. The lessons in the story hit home.
Overall a good book, not what I expected but still enjoyed it.

Sweet story

This is a very sweet story that some would say is uneventful but it spoke of a simpler lifestyle that is rich and rewarding.

Remarkable

If you are a fan of the movie "fried green tomatoes", or if you enjoyed "Before We Were Yours" then you will enjoy this family drama. It reminded me of my own family, and my grandma with giggles and tears. Looking forward to the next book.
