When her husband leaves to fight in the war, Adele feels even more lost and confused. In a new, less-than-ideal place in a frightening, less-than-ideal time, she flees to the garden with her daughters, determined to make their new house a home, even if it is from the outside in.

The sequel to The Lady of the Vineyard, Flowers, continues to the story of Adele, Troy, and Judy. This short story is clean historical fiction, this time with the Christian themes I chose not to include in the first book.

Such a sweet little story! I read the first book in September of 2017, and I enjoyed it, but I think I liked this one more. The story of Adele's redemption was so sweet, I love Troy so much, and the example of the flower garden was lovely. My only issue with this book is that Judy seems a little mature for her age... but maybe that's just me and I haven't met a mature seven-almost-eight-year-old. Idk. But yeah, I really enjoyed this story, it made me smile and made me sigh, and I applaud the aut ...more
After reading an early version of this story on the author's blog last spring, I jumped at the chance to review the published version. And I was not disappointed. :)

Flowers is a very sweet story, and I dearly enjoyed it. I read The Lady of the Vineyard back around the time of its release and, while I liked it, Adele was not a favorite of mine. I liked Judy. I loved Troy. But I just couldn't really relate to Adele.

This short-story did a great job of making Adele more easy to connect to for me. I

Exactly what I expected of Kell- beautiful. And I do love the banters.
I loved the ending, and Adele's thought process. I loved her need to 'fix' something, hence her flower garden. Her constant banter with Troy, however, was slightly annoying to me. I like banter, but when this couple didn't truly love each other, it seemed like they bugged each other, but took it lightly. They even jested with each other when they discussed serious subjects, like salvation.
Since this was a short story, there wasn't much else to like or dislike. I'm sure that I would have liked i

I LOVED THIS LITTLE STORY. I am like squealing and smiling and AHHHH! This story is so sweet, so true, and so downright GOOD. I love how so much simple truth can be put into such a small story. It meant so much.

Very touching themes from a unique family situation. I enjoyed reading from both the parents' and daughter's perspective and seeing Della find herself. How the title weaves into the story is also very well done. I suppose I should read the first one now that I've edited this one for Kellyn so I have all the context ;P

Another great short story in this series. This one is about Adele. Whom, I honestly wasn't fond of in the pervious stories. Though this one does a good job of showing Adele transform for the better, and she even became likeable.
There are some deep themes in this story, but it is so light, and sweet that it makes this an enjoyable read.

Flowers, the short story sequel to The Lady of the Vineyard, is the perfect end to Adele's story. She begins to change in the first book, but this is the book where she undergoes the true transformation. She really begins to care for people - Judy, Camilla, even her mother and yes, Troy. :)

This book is full of deep stuff. It's written in a sweet, simple way - even a child could understand it. It's somewhat flowery (um ... guess why? No, just kidding; this book isn't packed with descriptions of f

I thought I'd end up loving this (Adele! Troy! Judy! My peoples! My children!) but eh ... I didn't? Don't take me wrong, I liked it I just didn't fall in love with it.

It was a nice short story with a nice message and I loved the banter but ... that felt like it was about everything in it. We didn't get a lot of much else and I'm not sure what I expected (like ... Sari ... it's a short story ... literally ...???) but it just didn't ... satisfy me per se.

It wasn't too much of a proble

Flowers is the sequel to the Lady of the Vineyard, giving us a peek at Judy, Adele, and Troy’s life after being united again as one family. I really loved the message and personally, I believe this was my favorite out of the series, maybe because it seemed to have more of God in it. This is a sweet, short read safe for any age, packed with a message this world needs to hear more of!

Kellyn Roth has been writing stories since she was seven, though she wrote quite a few (awful) poems and songs before that. Nowadays, she pens Christian & Historical Fiction, including lots of adorable children and mischievous animals - as well as a generous dose of BBC-style drama.

Miss Roth lives in the beautiful Columbia River Gorge with her parents, two little brothers, crazy border collie
