A Rose by the DoorLarge Print - 2001
Every summer, visitors come to Bea Bartling's home in Ash Hollow, Nebraska, to see the historic yellow rosebush that had been a famous trail marker for wagons on their way west. And every night, Bea prays she will find a special face among those at her door. Then she gets crushing news that the son who ran away years ago has been killed. Overwhelmed by grief -- and a bitterness as hard as steel -- she has no welcome in her heart for the woman and child who soon show up at her door…and no room for them in her life. Yet their arrival changes everything. Now, as old secrets are revealed, a lonely woman discovers a prodigal son may still come home if she accepts a precious gift of grace -- and if she dares to believe in the miraculous power of love.
