Leota’s garden was once a place of beauty, where flowers bloomed and hope thrived. It was her refuge from the deep wounds inflicted by a devastating war, her sanctuary where she knelt before a loving God and prayed for the children who couldn’t understand her silent sacrifices.

Now, eighty-four-year-old Leota Reinhardt is alone, her beloved garden in ruins. All her efforts to reconcile with her adult children have been fruitless, and she voices her despair to a loving Father, her only friend.

Then God brings a wind of change through unlikely means: one, a college student who thinks he has all the answers; the other, the granddaughter Leota never hoped to know. But can the devastation wrought by keeping painful family secrets be repaired before she runs out of time?

Really good book. I enjoyed it very much. Just one thing...I didn't like the way grandma Leota died. I am a nurse and patients are well taking of and we make sure to know who is visiting them.

Heart-rendingly real
January 5th, 2014
Francine Rivers' style of writing is beautiful, soulful and brutally honest: bearing some of the most poignant situations many of us are faced with in "real life". We are offered scenarios that make us think, reflect and question our own reactions and approach to life's challenges - and Leota's Garden is no different. It is heart-rendingly real, with multiple lessons beautifully crafted from inspired words. I think each of us will take away at least one important lesson from this book. Francine is truly a mouthpiece for God's teaching...
