Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Ten-year-old Lori Jean believes that love can heal Ray, her abusive stepfather whose drunken rages have left Lori Jean and her mother beaten and bruised. Growing up impoverished in rural Georgia in the 1950s, Lori Jean survives abandonment by her biological father, as well as the deaths of her grandmother and her best friend, Carolee. Despite these tragedies, Lori Jean clings tenaciously to faith and hope. When she discovers that her stepfather was the victim of sexual abuse as a child, she struggles to "fix" Ray's problems, but unfortunately, his illness runs too deep. Told in southern dialect through the innocent eyes of a child, the first-person narrative effectively draws the reader into Lori Jean's world. Though the ending is a bit contrived, Miles' story proves haunting and even inspirational. Linda Zeilstra

A touching story... Guaranteed to change your heart. (Julie Booking Mama 20100719)

A small book but it has a huge impact. (Queen of Happy Endings 20100825)

There are certain novels that stay with the reader long after the story is completed and Roseflower Creek is such a book. (Jennifer Runpinne )

Truly mesmerizing and raw ... A brilliant job... so heartfelt and personal. (Brande Book Junkie )

A very moving story... Highly recommended with a box of tissues. (Kristinia Loving Heart Mommy ) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
