This story is particularly endearing because of the heroine, Abigail Stevens. She's a blind young woman of good faith and moral character who befriends a motherless urchin. Without the sense of sight, Colvin sticks the reader into Abigail's head with the touch and sounds of fabrics, the feel of wood tables, the noises of horse hooves, and the smell of hothouse flowers.
Colvin portrays Abigail as a bold lady who has made her own way even with her limitations. She is part owner of the local factory, and she raises and sells flowers. Abigail could have been a weak character held captive to a sightless existence waiting for God's healing and a man. She is not. If Abigail could figure out how to drive a buggy, I'm guessing she would.
Abigail could play things safely and live with her sister and work in her hothouse, but she wants to venture out into society on the strong arm of the widower, Seth Warren. Seth's journey to love is warming as he struggles to accept Abigail's handicap and to end his guilt and bitterness arising from his late wife's passing.
Abigail knows who she is and lives her faith. Even when she has her black moment, her faith leads her forward, no retreating and no giving ground to fear. It's easy to want to hide when things go wrong, but there is only one thing that can become beautiful hiding in a closet shrouded in blackness, and that is a poinsettia.

For a truly delightful, holiday story and maybe a few lessons along the way, this is a book that I would definitely recommend. Happy reading.
I really, really enjoyed this story. I think it was a really sweet romance. The relationship grew between Seth and Abigail from a hate to a love, then between Seth and Mary Ella. It also grew between Mary Ella and Abigail in such a sweet way! I didn't care for the sister - think Seth will probably have to be quite stern with her in allowing Abigail to live a normal life.
every year for my daughter in law for her birthday, but she never has them hang around to bloom again after they sleep in the dark for a
period of time. Maybe she should start to find out, how to find out how to take care of the flower.
This was also a very loving story about a young girl who needed a woman's attention and love. It also was about a woman who needed
to be loved and needed, by a man who had a lot of love to give . It makes for a very happy ending for Seth, Abigail and Mary Ella.
Thank you for an enjoyable book!
hardships to adjust in productive, positive
ways after being struck by blindness in adulthood. She and Mary Ella, a lonely,
motherless neighbor child, develop a caring
and fun relationship. Seth, Mary Ella's
father, initially struggles to heal after his
wife's death and then to accept the blindness of Abigail, whom he comes to love.
In addition, the sweet Christian romance focuses on the joy in growing flowers. Particularly important is the lesson of the poinsettia. It teaches that the dark times of life can strengthen our faith and improve our lives if we open our hearts to God's light and love.
This short story also provides insight into
life in the early 1900's, including the
revolution in transportion.
The author's emphasis on life lessons combined with romance should appeal to
