It was Mother’s Day and Robert Allman tried to prepare for the occasion. Tradition held that, when worshippers attended church on Mother’s Day, those whose mothers were alive wore red roses. Those whose mother’s were passed—like Robert—would wear a white rose. However, after he could only find a red rose to wear, he never dreamed—not in a million years—what was in store for him.
A family goes to church by mother’s day but they stop in their way to buy a rose for each one. A red rose means their mother is still alive, while a white one means she has passed away. A red rose instead a white one brings a wonderful surprise.
This is a beautiful tale about love and homesickness. The characters are not fully developed but the way they are pictured works well for the story. I think a longer and more elaborate book would have better served the plot, since like it is right now it seems just a draft.
Eva R. Marienchild delivered a very good narration, expressing the right amount of emotion at every time and with a different voice for each character. It helped to bring the characters to life and improve the story.I received a copy of this book in audio format from the author in exchange for an honest review.
My name is Elena. Since I was a little child I loved science fiction and fantasy, and I can’t resist to a good novel. In 2015, while wait I started to listen to audiobooks and I discovered the pleasure in being able to read while doing my daily tasks, so there’s always an audiobook playing on my phone. If you see me with my Bluetooth headphones on, please be gentle, I get easily startled.
I live with my boyfriend, which I met during my six-years stay in Belgium, three cockatiels, eight lovebirds, and a Gouldian finch in Madrid, Spain; and I like to spend my free time knitting and sewing while listening to audiobooks.
