When the Morning Glory Blooms *Review

About the Book:

Becky rocks a baby that rocked her world. Sixty years earlier, with her fiancĂ© Drew in the middle of the Korean Conflict, Ivy throws herself into her work at a nursing home to keep her sanity and provide for the child Drew doesn’t know is coming. Ivy cares for Anna, an elderly patient who taxes Ivy’s listening ear until the day she suspects Anna’s tall tales are not just idle ramblings. They’re Anna’s disjointed memories of a remarkable life.
Finding a faint thread of hope she can’t resist tugging, Ivy records Anna’s memoir, scribbling furiously after hours to keep up with the woman’s emotion-packed, grace-hemmed stories. Is Ivy’s answer buried in Anna’s past? And what connects them to Becky?
Becky, Ivy, Anna—three women fight a tangled vine of deception in search of the blossoming simplicity of truth.

My Thoughts:

 I was drawn right into this story. I felt Cynthia Ruchti used lyrical and inviting wording that made me smile and sigh. She worded things so beautifully that I could understand the depth of the emotions being expressed. What a blessed story with the focus of adoption, foster care, loving those that society deems 'unlovely', just as Christ has done for all of us. I so enjoyed seeing how these stories of Becky, Ivy and Anna wove together, each with a need for love and forgiveness. There is raw emotions, and hurting soles in this story, but each are touched by the story of another. I put this way at the top of the list for books I highly recommend. I just devoured it! It was written so wonderfully that this honestly will be a book I reread, and those are few and far between. Outstanding job!!
