The English Garden
For generations, the garden has been a place to find the peace and quiet the soul desires – and, perhaps, the love the heart longs for. In 1631, Helen – A Woman of Valor – enters Marston Hall to care for three children. While the children test Helen’s strength and patience, encounters with the horseman unnerve her. Can the garden help bring each one to a gentle understanding? The Victorian garden of Hampton Manor is an escape for Sarah – from the demands of society…and her mother. When she falls in love with the orchard keeper and becomes the Apple of His Eye, can these two social opposites find hope for a future together? With London under German attack, Margaret encounters an endearing Royal Air Force pilot whose beautiful garden sketches stir her soul. As the war rages, can love become A Flower Amidst the Ashes to refresh her heart? In Robyn’s Garden, disabled children are taught about nature – and Robyn learns a difficult lesson from a visiting American. He has taken something she has to have back. Can she trust him with it…and her heart? Four women, four eras, one common theme: Joy and rest are found in God’s careful nurturing and pruning. Come, experience His peace in the garden!
