Thomas Nelson, Inc.

A strange and wonderous friendship ignites the fire of love in May Seymour's life.

Lovely and winsome May Seymour graduated from college with the world at her feet...and no idea what to do with it. A spontaneous mission trip to Africa brought great surprise--love--and a strong sense of purpose. But in loving others there, she encountered a severe tragedy that left her deeply wounded.

She comes to heal at the farm of Claudius Borne--a sweet, kind old man who understands plants and animals far better than people. And his farm becomes May's home.

There on the farm, May renews a friendship with an old college flame named Eli whose path has taken unexpected turns too. As May tries to convince Eli to grab hold of life once again, he begins to pull May from her sheltered existence. Like old Claudius's farm in Spring, May begins to blossom back into life. But no resurrection ever comes without sacrifice--and this sacrifice will forever transform May.

& Taylor

May Seymour learns an old college flame, Eli Campbell, is now a death-row inmate, so May tries to convince him to grab hold of life once again but it is Eli's strong faith that ultimately convinces May to live once again. Original.
"May Seymour graduated from college with the world at her feet and no idea what to do with it. A mission trip to Rwanda brought her a sense of purpose in loving others. So when the genocide began she chose to remain in the village, which was subsequently slaughtered. Only May survived. May journeyed to heal on the farm of Claudius Borne, a sweet, innocent old man who understood plants and animals far better than people. Years later, having not stepped a foot off Claudius' farm, May learns an old collegeflame, now a death-row inmate, is refusing to appeal his sentence. Can she convince him to grab hold of life once again? Their surprising friendship turns the tables, for the prisoner, Eli Campbell, has a deeper faith from which to draw than she. Eli slowly begins to pull May from her cloistered existence. With the help of Eli, their tiny town, and ultimately a renewal of faith, May comes to life once again." - Taken from cover p.4.

This story dealt with suffering and tragedy and how faith in a loving God can stay alive under those circumstances. I found it slow in some parts, but really wanted to stick with it to find out how the main character resolved her issues with God in the end. Overall a good read and definitely deals with some of the more difficult topics of faith in the midst of tragedy and loss.

What a delightful book! I've read a couple of others by this author and enjoy her easy style of writing. I found May's story of recovery from personal trauma, with the help of those around her, moving and touching. The characters are well-drawn and believable, and I really enjoyed the interaction between them.
