Kathryn's Fountain

Book Description:

Kathryn is resigned to living out her last days at Victorian Manor, a beautiful old home for senior citizens. Then one day a miraculous experience happens to Kathryn at the garden fountain, and she begins living an adventure beyond her wildest dreams. Love and sacrifice take on new meaning as she involves a social worker and a police detective in carrying out what she believes to be her calling -- to rescue a street child named Jasmine.

Kathryn's Fountain celebrates the gifts that the generations can bring to each other. The conclusion is a resounding affirmation that it's never too late to make a difference.

Book Review:

At my husband's family reunion, one of the members of his family who has been a pastor for quite a few years said, "People keep asking me when I am going to retire. I say as long as there is "fire" (hell), I can't retire." Unfortunately, he is in the minority. For some reason when people get older they seem to think they aren't useful anymore or maybe they have done their part.

Kathryn's Fountain was a wonderful example of how you are never too old to make a difference in someone life. Sometimes you may be the only person that can help someone. God may have hand picked you to help and if you choose not to help then that person will be hurting.

Kathryn definitely never thought she would be making an impact. She was living in a retirement home. People go there to die gracefully. Not live abundantly. However, when a little girl shows up hungry and hurting, a spark is lit in both of their lives.

Deanna, you do the best reviews! I mostly don't read Christian fiction because it tends to be a little pricey (while books like Harlequins are downright cheap) but your reviews sure make me want to go out and buy some! :o)
