Editorial Reviews

Word of Mouth Reviews
Each main character, and some secondary ones, were written with much detail. I couldn't put the book down and I finished it in one day. It made me want to get to the end to see how it all turned out.
Maryanne Hannan
"Lively tries to personalize abortion by putting all these struggles in the lives of a likable set of characters...within this framework, Lively tries to render all the characters' struggles sympathetically, even mercifully. It is not a harsh book. To her credit, even the abortionists are not demonized. Some readers will be put off by the overt teaching passages. Others will find these passages reassuring, life-affirming. However, this book was published by a secular press, and that in itself is a small miracle."
—Maryanne Hannan, Southern Renaissance
Scribes World Reviews
"A debut novel of ambitious scope, Little Flowers raises some interesting questions regarding the consequences of murder, abortion, and pre-marital sex...[Lively] shows real talent and I hope she will continue to write because she brings a fresh viewpoint to the world inspirational novels."

    Too much of the same thing

    I wish the overview had revealed that this book was mainly about promoting the catholic religion

    From the author

    Writing Little Flowers was somewhat an therapeutic exercise for me, as I felt I had grown as a writer and as a Christian during the two years it took me to complete and polish the story. Certain elements of Little Flowers are based loosely upon personal experiences, and when you read in particular of Monica's and Pre's separate struggles you will note there is a piece of me in each character. I set out to write a story of friendship, forgiveness and redemption. Abortion will always be a touchy subject, whether in fiction or in the media, and it is my hope that I presented a side of the story which does not judge anyone.

    Wonderful characters

    I found this book to be well written and very interesting. Anyone who has teenagers as well as teenagers themselves should read this. The characters were well developed and you had a real feeling for who they were.

    Excellent Read!

    A friend of mine recommended this book to me. I ordered it, received it and finished it in one day. The story and characters are extremely well written. Although the main topic is controversial, the author shows many sides to it. She shows how abortion affects everyone, from the medical professionals who provide them to the families that have to deal with the fact that a member is considering it. This is a book with Catholic and pro-life themes, however it never becomes 'preachy'. I think non-Catholics and even non-Christians can enjoy the narrative. I anxiously await the next book from this author.

    Don't Miss This One!

    The first chapter's gripping, graphic description compels the reader to meet unforgetable people and make a journey of love and forgiveness. At first I thought the Merwin family was an anachronism or a throwback to the Catholic family of the mid-1950's. By the end of the book, I realized that they are a conservative Catholic family, perhaps the ideal, living in a 'culture of death'. The characters are realistic. Their difficulties and eventual transformations are woven skillfully together making a compelling and lovely story. I can't wait to read the next one.
