Overview

This story is meant for kids who have been separated from a parent, especially through death or divorce. It takes place soon after the 2001 terrorist attacks in New York City.
Pops and Meemaw are caretakers of a dilapidated mansion and its enormous garden, which is hidden behind a tall privacy fence. None of their grandchildren are allowed to enter the garden, but no one will tell them why. Though they can look down on it from the third floor balcony, the garden has so many trees and bushes, they can never discover whatever they aren't meant to see.
Ten-year-old Rose is living with Pops and Meemaw while her mom is in the hospital. Rose has never met her dad, and now she is afraid her mother isn't ever going to come back for her.
Eleven-year-old Neal is staying with his grandparents next door. Neal’s father was one of the policemen who died on 9/11. In need of solitude, his mother has gone to California, hoping Neal and his Missouri grandparents will be a comfort to one another.
Rose arrives home from school and finds that her cousin Alexandria has come to spend the long weekend. The two girls catch Neal gazing at the garden through a hole in the fence. He admits that he has been stalking some small, white, winged creatures. Are they birds or bugs? The children can never get close enough to say for sure.

Meet the Author

I have been writing since fifth grade, anytime I could find a quiet corner and prop a notebook on my knees. Even if I couldn't find the time or place, I always-always-always kept writing in my head. I tried to give it up more than once, even shredding a knee-high stack of poems and story starts. In time, I always go back to it because it brings me a unique sort of joy - the kind that springs from deep inside. Over the years, I've had a few nice responses from traditional publishers and a semi promise twice ... though I now know those aren't worth the paper they're not printed on. I was feeling pretty discouraged when a friend sent me an ad for self publishing on the Internet. Since I had quit my job to write full time (in spite of the fact that we were ranked with the working poor even while I was working) the 'no cost' factor caught my eye! I thought about it for awhile ... I had written more than 20 books and it looked as if they would all disappear when I did. Why not introduce all those characters via the Internet and give them a chance to survive? So here I am - Christian, wife, mother, Moomaw, author! I'm working hard to edit those books in the hope that readers will find a message that inspires them to delve into the best Book of all. I don't know you, but I know He loves you, and that's what my books are about. Blessings!

    Healing for the Hurting

    The children in this book are far from cardboard cut-outs. This is not your typical Christian Children's fiction where Mommy and Daddy love each other and nothing ever bad happens. No, in this book you'll find the charactors being bullied, feeling depressed, being abandoned by a parent, losing a parent to mental instabilty, and having a parent pass away.

    However, this book is far from a depressing read. Every page drips with hope, help, renewal, grace, and friendship. And to top it all off, the Grandparents are fully Godly in their witness, but human in their flaws. Then there's the mystery that needs to be solved...

    I cannot tell you how much I enjoyed this book. I stayed up 'til 3 am last night to finish it because I could not put it down. I love that I can now hand this book to my son, because it's one of the few Christian Children's books that I've found that are not girl oriented or have a "Magic" center.

    I highly recommend this book to any child you know that is hurting or needs help with coping in life.
