Thanks To Bookworm Buffet – A Review of Greening of a Heart

A special Welcome to those participating in the 2016 A to Z Post Challenge Road Trip or have just read my reflection posted on the #Challenge Blog Site


I owe a big THANK YOU to Barb Radisavijevie who blogs at Bookworm Buffet. She lives and writes in California. She has written a detailed review of Greening of a Heart. Never doubt the far reaching consequences of the blogging world. This was my 4th year to participate in the A to Z Blogging Challenge. This year I wrote 26 posts on the architecture and impact on the community of historic hotels and inns. It was well received judging by the stats surrounding the posts. Bookworm Buffet must have liked what she found when visiting, did a little exploring, and downloaded from Amazon, Greening of a Heart.  I’m delighted that her appreciation for the novel led to this review and recommendation.

Here is the link to review. Perhaps the setting and characters will call to you too!

An excerpt from the review……My Recommendation

I got very involved in this book. I began to really care about these new book friends. If you enjoy books that are more character than plot based, if you like watching people examine their lives with a mind to understand themselves and others, you will find this a rewarding read. You will see people falling in love, reconciling their differences, and experiencing spiritual and marital renewal through relationships begun in a garden.

If you thrive on relationships with people and like to observe positive changes in their lives, you will want to read Greening of the Heart. It will make you think about your own life and relationships as you watch the drama unfold. If you are also a gardener, this book will have an added layer of meaning for you. If you enjoyed reading the Mitford Series or Can’t Wait to Get to Heaven by Fanny Flagg, I would also expect you to find Greening of the Heart appealing. If you haven’t read any of these, what are you waiting for? You won’t want to miss any of these books.

    Lovely review, Stepheny.Congratulations!

  2. Thanks for mentioning this, Stepheny. I appreciate your sharing this. I enjoyed meeting you during the challenge. I rarely buy a book anymore since I get so many free, but many are worth just about what I pay for them. I was intrigued by your book, and I’m not sorry I bought it.
