When Agnes Furey lost her forty-year old daughter Pat and six-year-old grandson Christopher to homicide in 1998 at the hands of Leonard Scovens, words could not describe the hole left in her heart. Even so, rather than hate, Furey chose peace, and she reached out to Scovens in prison.

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.

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.
