Rachael Bontrager’s flower garden is beautiful, but at twenty-four, she’s  lonely. Gideon Beiler fell in love with Rachael almost at first sight. After her grandfather has a stroke, her days are filled with caring for him, and one day Rachael finds her garden in shambles. However, she won’t accept Gideon’s offers of help. Will she realize she doesn’t have to do everything on her own and that God is in control?

REVIEW:
Rooted in Love is quite and appropriate title for the story. I felt the deep-rooted love between Rosie and Saul from the start. I would love to read more about these two, as well as the other characters in the community. I feel so invested now. 5/5
I am so glad Rachel and Gideon did what was meant to be in Flowers For Rachel. Really, it couldn't have happened to two better people. 5/5
Seeds of Love is a story so deep in tradition, trust, love, family and humility. Would love to read more about Sadie and Eli. 5/5
Where Healing Blooms shows how gracious, kind and humble some people can be. It affirms your outlook on the human spirit. 5/5
Overall, each story was different in its own way and yet each was a fantastic read for me.

5/5

It is like a machine that runs non-stop that has the computing power to be able to make very complex decisions and experience unexplainable phenomena like emotions. The brain controls every other organ in the body so it is arguably the most important one. Unfortunately, probably due to its brilliance, it is a fairly vulnerable structure that can and does degrade over time.
