A beautiful story and should be read by all

Rose's Garden is a moving and lyrical novel. I liked the story and its reverence for nature and the way that Ms. Brown writes about death - love - memory. This was a wonderful story that will touch the heart!

    I'd give it more stars if that was an option!

    This is an outstanding story, full of love, magic, tragedy, and hope. You'll be spellbound. Brown's way with words is surely something we should experience. She's magical, her tale is full of heart. Read and you'll find out.

    Awesome

    A great, great book. This from an old truck driver who you would not expect to like this type of novel.

    A good read for a long, rainy weekend.

    Enjoyable, though not light-hearted as I was led to believe from the person recommending it to me. I would recommend it.

    Great story

    I really enjoyed this book. I could picture the main character in all his recollection of memories, the house, the gardens, all beautifully described. This took a while, maybe 80 pages, for me to get into. It was worth it, I recommend this one.
