New York Times bestselling author Catherine Anderson touches listeners’ hearts with her captivating romances. Coming Up Roses is the emotionally gripping story of a woman who must overcome her painful past before she can accept a good man’s love.

1890 Oregon. Recently widowed Kate Blakely is struggling to make ends meet on her small farm while trying to heal from the scars of her late husband’s cruelty. When her handsome, brawny neighbor, Zachariah McGovern, almost dies while saving her four-year-old daughter from a near fatal accident, Kate is deeply wary of the man she brings into her home to nurse back to health.

Gradually Kate realizes that underneath Zach’s rough exterior is a gentle, loving soul who is fiercely protective of her and her daughter. But as much as Zach longs for Kate’s love, she knows she can’t open her heart without revealing her darkest secret—a shocking truth that, if discovered, could destroy them both.

    " Catherine Anderson's books always tug at my heartstrings. They are well-written with wonderful characters. I fell head over heels in love with Zachariah in this one. He was a great hero for Miranda and Kate to find. One of my favorite parts was when Miranda told Zach all the things he was saying about the spider on the ceiling when he was suffering with a fever. Then in the next minute, this book twists my heart by mentioning all the abuse that Kate and Miranda suffered from Joseph. I think she does a wonderful job showing how hard it can be for a woman to trust another man after being abused so badly by her first husband. Catherine Andersron's books make me laugh, cry, and everything in between. Glad I found this one at the bookstore! "

    " 3 1/2 stars. I've gotten tired of Anderson's inevitable "fragile woman rescued by perfect man" formula, but her older books seem to offer more nuanced and balanced versions. This story about a widow suffering the aftereffects of an unspeakable marriage features some surprises, a worthy hero who nonetheless has some human failings, and a little more give and take than usual between the main characters -- Zach has some painful scars himself, figuratively and literally. It's a very child heavy story (this is especially noticeable when listening to the audiobook) and I felt the first half was more a romance between Zach and Kate's little girl than between the two of them, which didn't thrill me. The audiobook narration is quite good. "

    " I have yet to read a Catherine Anderson book that I didn't love. This one was just as good as all her others. I loved watching Kate and Miranda learn to love and trust. After all they had been through it took a very strong man to help them past it. By learning to love Zach they also helped heal him from the problems of his past. I can't wait till she comes out with her next great book! "

    " This book had a good story line and I like the writting style of the author. BUT, she was very graphic in describing the "wedding night" and another intimate time between the couple. Even though they were married, this type of writing isn't called for. "
