I've just learned of a NEW RELEASE by DENISE HILDRETH JONES - I've read many of her books. She's made me laugh, cry and think about the deeper things in life. She's spoken at Finding Hope Book Club two times and both times we were captivated by her humor, honesty and zest for life. I do think this cover is interesting, simple and intriguing! Knowing Denise and her books I'm sure that this book won't disappoint. I can't wait for the adventure this author will take us on next.

The last book I read for Finding Hope Book Club was Hurricanes in Paradise. We loved all the colorful characters and the special bonding that too place preparing for the Hurricane in Paradise. Before that we read Will of Wisteria. Again another book we loved and talked in depth about! I'm sure that this book will take us on another fun adventure.

Here is the BACK COVER BLURB: Jeremiah Williams has been tending the gardens of the Tennessee governor’s mansion for over twenty-five years. And like most first families who have come and gone, this one has stolen his heart.

Mackenzie and her husband, Governor Gray London, have struggled for ten years to have a child and are now enjoying a sweet season of life—anticipating the coming reelection and sending their precious daughter, Maddie, off to kindergarten—when a tragedy tears their world apart. As the entire state mourns, Mackenzie falls into a grief that threatens to swallow her whole.
Though his heart is also broken, Jeremiah realizes that his gift of gardening is about far more than pulling weeds and planting flowers. It’s about tending hearts as well. As he uses the tools that have been placed in his hands, he gently begins to cultivate the hard soil of Mackenzie’s heart, hoping to help her realize what it took him years to discover. 

A Southern tale of loss, love, and living, The First Gardner reminds us that all of life is a gift, but our heart is the most valuable gift of all.

Just wanted to give you a SNEAK PEEK into DENISE'S New Book THE FIRST GARDENER to be Released AUGUST 2011~~ I Can't Wait!!
