Overview

She decided long ago to be called Susan, not exactly the name her parents had given her, but the one she’d chosen...

When she first opens her dream shop, Susie’s Flowers, on a cold February morning, a new chapter in her life begins. She doesn’t anticipate it will include meeting the most eligible bachelor in tiny Winton Springs.

Then Ben Turner, the new minister at North Point, walks into Susan’s shop to order flowers for the Easter service, and decides to ask her for help. He needs to find an apartment and a volunteer for the missions committee.

She assumes he wants friendship. He’ll take that, for now, but when he discovers her real name, things change...

Will their friendship be enough for her, too, or will she break her vow not give her heart away a second time?

    "Like a Lily" is a short romance about Susan William. Susan is trying to heal after a heartbreaking breakup with her boyfriend, so she decides to return to her hometown in Winston Springs and open a flower shop, and hopefully start to mend her broken heart. And like in all small towns, everyone knows all about everyone else, and that includes Susan, so the matchmaking begins to find her a new beau. And who else would be a perfect match but the single preacher at the church in the community? But what does the preacher say about that?

    Wow, I really enjoyed this heartwarming Easter story. I love the community and its residents because they never cease to show how much they care for each other. But maybe they show their care just a little too much for Susan and preacher Ben because they are both nursing past heart wounds and neither is interested in romance. But this is what makes the story so enjoyable. Being able to watch the two deal with their past hurts and begin to heal keeps you reading the story to see what the outcome will be. This is a very short story, with only forty one pages, so you can read it in one setting. I encourage you to purchase a copy, sit down and enjoy a delightful, springtime romance in the pages of "Like a Lily" by Victoria Pitts-Caine. I think you will be very happy that you chose this entertaining book.

    In the mood for a short, sweet Easter story? Here’s one ready-made. In a small town in California, Susan Williams returns home to open a flower shop with a legacy from her grandmother, as well as heal a bruised heart after being abandoned by a fickle boyfriend. Everyone knows everyone else’s business in this hamlet, so no wonder several people hint that Susan would be a good match for the new minister, Ben Turner. He seems perfect, not just for Susan but also for any other single woman from eighteen on up. The path to love never runs smooth, and most of the bumps in this story are self-induced, but that’s often true in real life. I would have enjoyed more detail about Ben’s missionary service and captivity by terrorists, however, there’s still enough of a taste of this to activate Ben’s desire for a family. Turn to this novella for a relaxing, well written read on a hectic Sunday or anytime you want a break in routine.

    Short, sweet, and full of the promise of springtime! Take a small (i.e. nosey) town, a new batchelor minister, and a wary young woman, and there's the prescription for romance. I loved how Pitts-Caine used the symbollism of flowers/blossoming as a metaphor for life and love throughout this novella. Well done!
