Publisher's Summary

It was Mother's Day and Robert Allman tried to prepare for the occasion. Tradition held that when worshippers attended church on Mother's Day, those whose mothers were alive wore red roses. Those whose mothers were passed, like Robert's, would wear a white rose. However, after he could only find a red rose to wear, he never dreamed, not in a million years, what was in store for him.

Really Sweet..

A rose 🌹 that represents a son's love and respect for his mother. Told with few words, it's still a reminder that our family is always alive in our hearts and memories. It's nice when such a short story can make you stop and think about the sentimental things. I voluntarily requested a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

Sweet and emotional

This is a very sweet short story dealing with the grief of loosing a parent. It's powerfully emotive and enjoyable to listen to.

The narration is a good match for the story and helps to convey the emotion of the story.

I received a free copy of this book from the publisher and/or author and/or narrator in exchange for an honest review.
