I was so excited to be provided with an advance copy of this book. When I opened the picture, the cover was such a gorgeous color and I was excited to get started reading.
The Care and handling of Roses with Thorns follows a small period of time in the life of Gal. Gal is a science teacher with kidney disease who wants to create a new type of rose. She is a very frank person, often saying exactly what is on her mind and seeing things in black and white. She doesn't always understand why people get upset, since she is usually correct. Her life is changed when her teenage niece is unexpectedly sent to live with her. Gal must learn how to be more flexible and begins to see the world in color.
