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.

A Bit Different Than Other Books by This Author A+

Robert Allman is traveling to church with his family on Mother's Day. He is sent into the store to buy flowers and some candy at the direction of his wife and son. I cannot elaborate any further without spoiling the story for potential listeners.

This was a nice little story, but not Jones' best, in my opinion. I've had the opportunity to listen to 3 of them thus far.

Eva R Marienchild gave a solid performance. The story was so short that I didn't really have enough material to elaborate further.

So far, the short stories are entertaining. Perhaps the publisher should put all of Jones' stories into one collection.

Beautiful story but not the best format

A family goes to church by mother’s day but they stop in their way to buy a rose for each one. A red rose means their mother is still alive, while a white one means she has passed away. A red rose instead a white one brings a wonderful surprise.

This is a beautiful tale about love and homesickness. The characters are not fully developed but the way they are pictured works well for the story. I think a longer and more elaborate book would have better served the plot, since like it is right now it seems just a draft.

Eva R. Marienchild delivered a very good narration, expressing the right amount of emotion at every time and with a different voice for each character. It helped to bring the characters to life and improve the story.

I received a copy of this book in audio format from the author in exchange for an honest review.
