Just as we are.

There are many ways that God's love and guidance is shown in this story. The keeping of the morning glories on the broken down fence, accepting every one as they are regardless of how God has made them, and the way Rose shares her blessings with the community.
This was one of the sweetest stories I've ever read.

Rose has a pleasant life in Buttonhole, Virginia. True, people think she's a bit dotty, but she doesn't mind. She's content with her life, which consists largely of helping others. Then Garret Diamond moves to town to take charge of the failing mercantile. Under his capable hands, the store turns a profit, and all the mothers seek to make his "acquaintance" with their single daughters. However, it is Rose who intrigues him. When he finds out h

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I know it's probably not going to be for everyone especially with redundant theme we already know from pretty much every romantic .

Can't believe I was getting caught up in all the baking and products on the emporium's shelves... but I was. It was cute.

Fun, clean, and romantic. A very easy read. Rose lives ins a small town, and is a proclaimed spinster. When Garret Diamond moves into the community, and find out her tightly held secret, she is terrified. I liked this book, but it was very mild. Maybe I like more crazy, and unrealistic stuff? I don't know. This just seemed really sedate. Very realistic, life like situations. Very little drama.
