The perfect book to read as summer comes to an end. I enjoyed most of it sitting outside on my deck looking at my own flowers! ( )

What a beautiful book! Taking a new job, Abby moves her family into a cottage owned by an elderly reclusive woman (Iris) who lives next door in a home surrounded by a very tall fence. Abby's husband Cory suffers post-traumatic stress disorder from his service in the Iraq war. The woman next door lost her husband in World War II. His body was never recovered. Her only daughter died a short time later of polio. The woman worked to create the community's Victory Garden that fed many in the area during the War. Her yard is filled with beautiful blooms that Lily, Abby and Cory's daughter, loves. As Cory begins to recover, he finds gardening therapeutic. Abby's family and Iris share many interests and parallels, bonding with one another, and finding a way to healing. I loved this story which will appeal to anyone interested in flowers, colors, or gardening. The ending will appeal to many forensic genealogists. ( )

Whenever I finish a Viola Shipman book, I feel like I am saying goodbye to good friends. The books are full of beauty, family, love, hope, kindness, friendship, and more. The Heirloom Garden is a beautiful story of loss followed by hope.
Viola Shipman, a pseudonym for Wade Rouse, writes his books in tribute to his grandmother. She must have been a very special woman because his books are testaments of love. Sometimes the books are not subtle in their message, often almost knocking you over the head with their message, but that is what we need to hear the message on many occasions.
I loved how this novel tells the story through flowers and their life cycle, and how it also looks at veterans and war and the toll it takes on families and a community. I loved how seeing life through a child can change people’s hearts. I loved how a family learns to move forward. I loved how the book honors and encourages strong women.
This is the 5th Viola Shipman book, I have read and loved each one. I can’t wait for his next book!

I love flowers, love color and enjoy anything and everything that is a heirloom. Filled with a lovely garden, descriptions of beautiful flowers, this was a lighter toned read. The subjects though we're anything but light. An older woman, who shuts herself in her garden after some tragic losses. A young man who has returned with PTSD after serving in the Iraq war. His wife who is trying so hard to keep their family together and their five year old daughter Lily, who is delightful.

It also takes place in Grand Haven, Michigan a place I know well. Was a little taken aback by what the residents call us out of towners from Illinois, which I don't repeat here. Did provide a little chuckle.
A good, warm-hearted, tender story, but it did get a little treacly for my reading taste. Those flowers though made it easy for me to overlook some of my usual preferences.

The narrators were Nan Macnamara and Lauren Enzo. They did pretty well so three stars for the narration. ( )

Thank you to Viola Shipman (aka Wade Rouse) and Graydon House for this book.

I'm so happy I won this book since I have read one of his books before and enjoyed it as well.

I loved this book not only about flowers (which I learned so much about) but about friendship, love, and opening up your life and your fences in life.

Abby, Cory and Lily rent a house in MI next to Iris a recluse who builds a fence to keep everyone out of her life. Cory has PTSD from being in Iran and cannot handle life. Abby is unhappy in her job. Lily is their precocious daughter who is 7 but is much more mature than that. She befriends Iris and becomes her friend and opens her world to life again after losing her husband in World War II and her daughter from polio in the 1950s.

I'm not going to spoil the end of the book but I cried. What a wonderful book. ( )
