A Rose by the Door
by Deborah Bedford
Bea Bartling is famous for her yellow roses, said to be cultivated from the original planting left by settlers on the Oregon Trail. People come from miles around to see her roses. In fact, in seems like everyone comes but the one person she'd really like to see - her estranged son. When this son is killed in a tragic accident, Bea is overwhelmed by grief and bitterness. The arrival of two strangers on her doorstep, suitcase in hand, doesn't help matters. But it may be through these two people that the greatest help of all arrives.
This is a Christian novel that is perfect if you ever feel your faith floundering, or wonder what to make of those unanswered prayers. Even in hard times, God's hand is revealed if you look in the right places.
