Aunt Mary's Rose by Douglas Wood
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


A family's love is represented by a rosebush in this beautiful true story. Douglas' Aunt Mary has a very special rosebush in her garden. Her father planted it with his father. Mary tended it as a young girl, and showed her nephews, Jim and Dick, how to take care of it too. Now she teaches Douglas to care for it, and tells him the story of their family: their sorrows, joys and the deep, enduring love that binds them together through the generations. This tender picture book memoir is an homage to the importance of love, family and stories. American history shapes the family's story, through the Great Depression and Second World War. Bereavement, both in peacetime and war, plays a central role. LeUyen Pham's glowing illustrations pay homage to Norman Rockwell.
