    This review was written for The First Gardener.
    First Gardner was an amazing book. Denise Hildreth Jones descriptions made me feel like I was at the Governor's mansion in Tennessee. The story of Governor Gray London and his wife, Mackenzie, is one of heartbreak and hope. Jones tells a tell that makes your relate to the characters, care about them and root for them; even when bad choices are being made. And the surprise ending was great, full of unexpected grace.

    Not even a 1 star rating, I would rate as -5 if allowed. It was awful. I would NOT recommend this book. Don't waste your time. There is never an excuse for profanity.

    A beautifully written, sweet, yet sad story. Having dealt with depression after losing a dear friend, this story certainly hit close to home. It was a book that I could not put down, and read it with tears, and also sometimes a chuckle. An excellent read, that I throughly enjoyed.

    "Not needlessly sad"

    I only decided to add my voice after reading a review that said this story was, "needlessly sad". Life, from our temporal perspective is usually, if not always, "needlessly sad". It is how we, through God's power, provision, and presence address life's trials that grants us the privilege of positively impacting others; which is exactly what the First Gardner does. That is why I found the tragedies uplifting - for those involved lumbered through them; some with God, some without, some by the strength of others' faith. This story is authentic and blessed me.

    The First Gardener by Denise Hildreth is a sad sweet story. I had a hard time putting it down and finished it quickly. All in all a good book.
