I have just finished reading The First Rose of Summer. It was exciting to watch the characters come to life and feel part of their world. The story was an interesting and enjoyable read and one that will draw you in to a desire for a closer relationship with God no matter what your relationship now.
Eileen Parsons managed to weave the truth of the Gospel throughout the novel. Her characters are believable, their faith is contagious and the message of encouragement abounds for everyone throughout the story.
I believe this book is more than just a "good read." It speaks truth to all who will read it. Whether you are a believer or not this book excels in interest, in truth, and encouragement. This is a page turner that is well worth reading!
I love to read but seldom have time.I couldn't put this book down.I would get up an hour early just so I could have time to read this amazing book!!The author takes you down the road that we often see family and friends travel on.As we wonder what to do to get them on track,she shows us how "God" works and listens to our prayers.Read it.You won't regret it!!!
