"With Red Rose Bouquet, Jennifer's adept handling of deep subjects has cemented her on my list of must-read authors. I can't wait to see what she tackles next." -Christina Coryell, Author of The Camdyn Series
"...exquisite; equally breathtaking and heartbreaking in intensity; a romance between two souls desperate to follow the path of the redeemed; while desperately afraid that the journey will destroy them. It's a story of unconditional love, even when it hurts; it's a story of forgiveness, waiting to be claimed, even by one who views her sin as unforgivable; it's a testimony to a God who is relentless in His ability to bring beauty out of brokenness." -Rebecca Maney, Goodreads Review
From the Author
There was nothing easy about this story. I found myself shredded through the process of research--something I usually love to do. Sitting down to write her story came with a sense of heaviness and a strong dose of fear. Still, her story would not let me surrender.
I am so thankful. I loved when Brock says in the story that his life was shifting. My paradigm has shifted too. I don't write so that I can preach.I write so that I may be changed.
I am definitely not the same. (We) cannot escape the demands of deep compassion. Truth. And it has opened my eyes.
Sometimes you have to be willing to look at the brokenness and to allow another's pain to break your heart before you can truly learn compassion. Thanks to Cheryl, my heart has been shattered. I am better for it. Because of that, I am so thankful for the things that I hadn't seen coming.
