This book is a revolution of the word forgiveness.

Wildflowers in the Median is an artwork of words that reaches out to readers, opening them to the beautiful and violent emotions of the heart. It is not a story told from one point of view, from beginning to end, but it is a journey that two people, Agnes Furey and Leonard Scovens , take part in.
This book is a bit of a shock to the system. It is hard to fathom any kind of understanding or forgiveness in the wake of such violence and tragedy. But Agnes Furey and Leonard Scovens made me think and really challenged me to consider healing and relationships in a different light. I will read it again since it is so short, but what I do love about it is that it returns humanity to both people involved who have been broken.
