The Cross Gardener - Jason F. Wright If you like the books of Nicholas Sparks or Paul Evans, or even the Jame Patterson ones that are contemporary fiction, you will love this book. It is a poignant and moving story about a man who is trying to deal with the loss of his wife and son in a tragic automobile accident. It is not only a story about loss, but also about hope, redemption, moving on, being there for others. The story is both heart wrenching and satisfying. I actually cried at the end, it was so beautifully written. In addition, it is a really quick read. I finished the book in one day, which, if you know me, is amazing. I don't have a lot to say about the book, not as much as I do sometimes in my reviews, but I loved it none-the-less. This is a book that I would probably pick up and read more than once, when I need a little bit of an emotional lift.
