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

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.

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.

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.

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.
