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.

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristy | 2/14/2014

    " Another Christian novel by Lisa Samson. There's something refreshing in these. She manages a unique storyline with plenty of philosophical questions and lots of likable, if messed up, characters. It drags a bit. I wouldn't want to read this kind of book all the time, but it was a nice change. "

    " It was a bit disjointed, the events in the plot were not very interconnected and seemed to occur suddenly without full development. The character development of May was excellent and you really felt what she was going though. I thought, however, some of the other characters could have been expanded a bit more to give more of an insight into the different perspectives about the events in the novel. The themes of religion and God were handled well and even though I am not personally religiously inclined I thought they brought a great sense of hope to the story. On the whole an ok read. "
