Barbara O'Neal is one of the best women' fiction writers out there.. Her stories are warm, compassionate, romantic, and full of rich texture of places and food and pets and friendship. In Garden of Happy Endings, she weaves in a marvelous thread aof spiritualit since one of the protagonists, Elsa, is suffering a deep crisis of faith. The story isn't about a specific religion, but rather about faith and healing and forgiveness--and also love. HIGHLY recommended.

In this one a very good book goes quickly to below average with an ending that was never fleshed out. It is like someone different wrote the last chapters. I think the story at its core is very good. If the ending was rewritten in a professional, complete way that fit with the way the rest of the book was written it would be a 5 star book.
Very disappointed.

    good book but has some profanity

    This was interesting reading but way too repetitive and 'drawn-out'.
    It was an interesting story line but the Profanity detracted from it.
    It certainly wasn't needed and it prevents me from recommending it to others.
    I won it and would love to have added it to my library to share with others
    but because of the profanity I won't.
    It does blow my mind how someone can profess to be a minister of God and break one of His most serious commandments of Fornication or adultery.
    He is the same forever. His Old Testament laws were fulfilled in Christ's coming which did way with stoning but the sin is just as serious and Christ suffered for it. As a true Christian, would we continue to make Him suffer if we truly love Him?
