Summer of the Rose

by Flossie Stewart

Hardcover(3rd ed.)




A rose is thrown onto the water, as its surface sparkles like diamonds in the sunlight. Then the mysterious rippling begins, beckoning you to go just a little further along the river's edge. Then it happens. You've touched the water. It is then that you realize you have traveled through time...

A RIVER OF SECRETS...Anna Brownfield is 12 the summer of 1877, when she and her twin brothers, Jed and Josiah, 15, set out to find the secret place in the river, hidden in the forest near their little dirt road southern town, where folks say that if you touch the water there, you will look around and realize you have traveled forward or even backward in time. Little do they know what the "Enchanted Lady" winding her way through the forest, which Anna refers to as "Lady River", has in store for them.

ROMANCE...Did she find her true love because of a secret place in the river, like others claim they did? Anna is now 87 years old, and she has some stories to tell, but none quite like the "Summer of the Rose". There are others who have stories to tell, and Anna knows who they are. She also knows that there are few who have ever been able to resist the River's call.

TALES OF TIME TRAVEL...So pull up a chair and sit for a while with Anna, Sam "Tater" Jenson, Mattie Turner, and the others, along with "Flapjack", the town hound dog as they take you back to a time of early southern America, when the town storytellers sat out in rocking chairs in front of the old stores and told stories of days gone by. Go back to a time when you saw the world through the eyes of a child and dared to imagine the impossible. You might hear a story you just wouldn't believe...
