A strange and wonderous friendship ignites the fire of love in May Seymour's life.

Lovely and winsome May Seymour graduated from college with the world at her feet...and no idea what to do with it. A spontaneous mission trip to Africa brought great surprise--love--and a strong sense of purpose. But in loving others there, she encountered a severe tragedy that left her deeply wounded.

She comes to heal at the farm of Claudius Borne--a sweet, kind old man who understands plants and animals far better than people. And his farm becomes May's home.

There on the farm, May renews a friendship with an old college flame named Eli whose path has taken unexpected turns too. As May tries to convince Eli to grab hold of life once again, he begins to pull May from her sheltered existence. Like old Claudius's farm in Spring, May begins to blossom back into life. But no resurrection ever comes without sacrifice--and this sacrifice will forever transform May.

This story dealt with suffering and tragedy and how faith in a loving God can stay alive under those circumstances. I found it slow in some parts, but really wanted to stick with it to find out how the main character resolved her issues with God in the end. Overall a good read and definitely deals with some of the more difficult topics of faith in the midst of tragedy and loss.

What a delightful book! I've read a couple of others by this author and enjoy her easy style of writing. I found May's story of recovery from personal trauma, with the help of those around her, moving and touching. The characters are well-drawn and believable, and I really enjoyed the interaction between them.
