Sweet remembrance of mom

By Dabofdarkness, audible.com reviewer


Bob, Clara, and little Johnie are headed to church on Mother's Day. They need to pick up roses on the way there from the little store run by Alma. However, she's all out of white roses so Bob gets three red roses even though his mom passed 9 years ago.

This tale had a small town feel to it and could be set in any decade from the last 100 years. Well, provided that there were jawbreaker candies back in 1917. The day starts off pretty normal for Bob but once he walks out of that little store with his red roses, he has an unexpected visit from his deceased mother.

It's a touching story of a mom touching base with her adult child after some years have passed though she has limited time. I like how she easily steered the conversation to all the important bits, including asking after Bob's sister Edna. It's a perfectly quaint tale fit for a family listen or if you're just looking for a little something upbeat during your lunch break.

I received a free copy of this audio book.
