Publisher's Description

A novel based on true experiences, Come to the Garden is a story about a woman’s journey with a mysterious angel that encourages readers to believe heaven is closer than they think.

Years ago, author Jennifer Wilder Morgan served as a hospital volunteer, visiting critically ill patients—praying with them and listening to their stories. As she created a safe space for those of all faiths and backgrounds, patients began confiding in Morgan about the mysterious ways God speaks to them—including encounters with angels, visions of loved ones who've passed on, and messages of comfort spoken in dreams. She witnessed the profound healing that occurs when people are permitted to talk about these experiences, and as a result, Morgan was inspired to share her own personal encounters with God in a novel.

In Come to the Garden, the main character Jenn wakes up on her birthday to find an angel introducing herself as Margaret in the backyard garden. Lately Jenn has been struggling to make sense of the mysterious ways God has been speaking to her and is trying to understand what he wants her to know. The angel takes Jenn back through her memories and life experiences, revealing how God has been connecting with her all along. Under the angel’s guidance, Jenn finally understands the messages God has been speaking to her, in her dreams, divine promptings, and unexplained coincidences. It becomes clear that God is a faithful and persistent pursuer of the human heart.

Framed as a series of conversations between Jenn and her guardian angel, this unconventional and charming narrative will strike deep into the hearts of anyone seeking a greater understanding of God. Come to the Garden is an inspirational fictional story about the surprising ways God works in our lives and affirms that heaven is truly closer than we think.

    Amazing story of what it would be like to encounter and be a friend to your guardian angel! Loved the story and it kept me intrigued and in awe of the moments that this person had with her true angel. I would recommend this to anyone! No matter if you think of it as fiction or nonfiction it is wonderfully written and the audio book is fabulous as well.

    Jennifer Wilder Morgan in her new book, Come to the Garden published by Howard Books introduces us to Jenn and Margaret, an angel

    From the Back Cover: A novel based on true experiences, Come to the Garden is a story about a womans journey with a mysterious angel that encourages readers to believe heaven is closer than they think.

    Years ago, author Jennifer Wilder Morgan served as a hospital volunteer, visiting critically ill patientspraying with them and listening to their stories. As she created a safe space for those of all faiths and backgrounds, patients began confiding in Morgan about the mysterious ways God speaks to themfrom encounters with angels to reassurances from loved ones whove passed on. She witnessed the profound healing that occurs when people are permitted to talk about these experiences, and as a result, Morgan was inspired to share her own personal encounters with God in a novel.

    In Come to the Garden, the main character Jenn wakes up on her birthday to find an angel introducing herself as Margaret in the backyard garden. Lately Jenn has been struggling to make sense of the mysterious ways God has been speaking to her and is trying to understand what he wants her to know. The angel takes Jenn back through her memories and life experiences, revealing how God has been connecting with her all along. Under the angels guidance, Jenn finally understands the messages God has been speaking to her, in her dreams, divine promptings, and unexplained coincidences. It becomes clear that God is a faithful and persistent pursuer of the human heart.

    Framed as a series of conversations between Jenn and her guardian angel, this unconventional and charming narrative will strike deep into the hearts of anyone seeking a greater understanding of God. Based firmly in scripture, Come to the Garden is an inspirational fictional story about the surprising ways God works in our lives and affirms that heaven is truly closer than we think.

    In the Book of Daniel when Daniel prays, we are told an angel is sent with the answer immediately and that the two of them talk. This angels name is Gabriel. I mention all this because Come to the Garden is based on true events. Ms. Morgan had her own encounters with an angel and, based on these encounters, Ms. Morgan was able to build this book. So, while this book is a fiction story, it was written with the purpose of letting us know that God is at work in our lives and that He uses His angels to bring us messages and to protect us in all kinds of ways. I think that this book is a lot of fun. The characters are so easy to identify with and relate to. The events that Ms. Morgan takes us through in this book are there to help others experience the same kind of Godly love she knows. I think you will really enjoy this book and I look forward to more from this talented author.

    We can always look back at our life in times of struggle and hardship and find growth there. There is a clarity that comes with time we might miss if we aren't too careful to pay attention. Life experiences are often the best teacher. However we can fail to learn from them as well and wonder where God was in the midst of those times as well.

    In the inspirational book, Come to the Garden by Jennifer Wilder Morgan, she incorporates the fictional story of an interaction between Jennifer and her guardian angel Margaret who she encounters one morning in her garden. Margaret shows Jenn through a retelling of events, dreams and visions she has had over her life, how God has been using those experiences to teach her more about the great love that God has for her as His daughter. While some situations clearly point these things out, others remained cloaked in a bit of mystery that Margaret walks Jenn through. Not everything that happens in our life can seem relevant until we can often gain some much needed godly perspective in them.

    For me, this novel took me to those spiritually dry places in my own walk with God when I failed to see how He was using those times for me to grow in ways I couldn't have any other way. Only in that hindsight can we see with the clarity that God can provide when we seek Him with all our heart. Now being in my garden definitely will bring to mind this book and the ideas behind what goes on in our life. We might not always gain the insight this side of heaven, but knowing that God never leaves us in any situation despite how dark things look is a definite spiritual boost.

    I received Come to the Garden by Jennifer Wilder Morgan compliments of Howard Books, a division of Simon and Schuster Publishers for my honest review. I did not receive any monetary compensation, aside from a free copy of this book for my fair and honest evaluation. Now perhaps I know why I am always drawn to the quiet of a beautiful garden. Perhaps my own angelic encounter awaits one day, but for now I am willing to trust God in all things. For me, this one was a 4 out of 5 stars in my opinion.

    Come to the Garden is an allegory based on the authors personal experiences in her walk with Lord from childhood to adulthood. The story reflects how she has felt through various seasons of her life whether they were times of joy or sorrow. In the novel, the author tells of she felt God revealed Himself to her, spoke to her and walked with her through life.

    As a reader, I would have preferred a more direct approach from the author such as stating what the life experience was and then sharing what she learned. I think the author felt safer in beginning her ministry by sharing about herself through a story after she had experienced giving talks about her gifts. There is neither mention nor scene that shows angel worship at all and for that I am glad. In fact, the author writes in a way that shows her heart being focused on the Lord.

    Come to the Garden is in some places for me somewhat unbelievable or shallow. I read the story in one afternoon; it doesnt take a lot of time. The author is passionate about studying the Bible and writes studies for groups. There were a few places where I am not in agreement with the authors apparent doctrinal understanding on a theme represented in the work of fiction. Sometimes the author wasnt clear on exactly what lesson the Lord wanted her to hear, but overall it was a good afternoon read.
