Product Description

Product Description

When Garnet's mother decides it's time for a change, she drops off her daughter at her aunt June's house  in Black Rock, Virginia, while she goes to Florida to find a job. Garnet has never met her Aunt June, so she feels angry and abandoned. But Aunt June thinks Garnet is there for a reason. Each week, Garnet and June visit a different religious service as Aunt June, who has cancer, tries to find God. After a miraculous spiritual healing occurs and an unexpected visitor comes to town, Garnet learns the power of love and forgiveness, and what being a family truly means.

5.0 out of 5 stars plot twist! 22 Mar 2012
By Melissa Sack - Published on
April Garnet Rose is a young teen that lives with her mother. They are struggling and her mom wants to make a better life for them. Her mom heads off to look for work in another state and sends April to live with the Aunt June and her family. April struggles here are first because she doesn't know them. Things change quickly when she meets a young man that she feels may be the love of her life. She also ends up meeting her father for the first time.

This book has lots of themes such as first loves, family, loss, and religion. It's a great story but be warned: It does not have such a happy ending!

I went running to find other books by this author as soon as I finished this one. Outstanding. I hope her future holds more books like this. though I have found her older-children focused books very good too.
5.0 out of 5 stars A "must read" for girls growing up without a father in the household" 3 April 2014
By Hope Irvin Marston - Published on
Having spent thirty-three years as a teacher/librarian in the public schools in Maryland, Maine, and New York, I have met many girls who grew up without a father figure in their homes. This book will resonate with them. As I read the story, I kept thinking of one particular young friend, now in her mid-teens, whose father disappeared before she was old enough to remember him. Like Garnet, any ideas she has about him are based on what she has been told or not told. And again like Garnet, if she ever learned the truth about her father, she might be as surprised as Garnet is in this story.

This story is set in the fifties. The author conveys everyday life realistically. I know because I had just graduated from college at that time. The characters are true-to-life and their relationships unfold in believable ways. The plot does not dawdle.

Middle readers will race through the book (not hard to do) in hopes things will turn out pleasant for Garnet. By the time the story ends, Garnet has matured considerably. It's a good thing because of what happens before the reader gets to the final page. This is not a tale where “they live happily ever after.”
