Synopsis

Synopsis

A best-selling author and illustrator team up to cultivate a heartwarming, true story of a family linked through time by the tending of a beloved rosebush.

Aunt Mary has a very special rosebush in her garden. She says a little bit of Douglas can be found inside it. And she tells him how the rosebush has a little bit of Douglas’s daddy in it as well. And a little bit of his daddy’s daddy. And, of course, a little bit of Aunt Mary. Douglas Wood’s tender memoir is complemented by LeUyen Pham’s charming and engaging illustrations. Together they show how caring for a treasured rosebush provides a connection between generations, and an enduring expression of attentiveness and familial love.

"My Aunt Mary’s rose, an old-fashioned rugosa shrub, has survived for a long time now. In the years since my childhood, our own boys have helped to care for it — and through its beauty, hardiness, and living memories, it still helps to care for us." — Douglas Wood — Quote
