THE CARE AND HANDLING OF ROSES WITH THORNS by Margaret Dilloway, 2012.
If you love gardening you’ll love this book. Gal Garner is a 36 year old biology teacher who struggles with kidney disease, and lives on a pretty tight schedule. In her spare time she comes alive in her garden where she cross-pollinates roses as she tries to win the QUEEN OF SHOW in a major competition. Meanwhile her teen-aged niece Riley, the daughter of her estranged sister shows up on her doorstep, and neither one of them will ever be the same.
This promises to be an interesting book.
NOTE: I AM enjoying this book a lot. It’s not a fast moving plot though, a little toned down due to the character being on dialysis every other day. Maybe she’ll get a kidney.. : )
It took me three days to read this book, I read approximately 2 books a week I’ve noticed.
