Publisher's Summary

A teacher for more than 25 years, Jamie Langston Turner has written stories, articles, plays, and poems for a variety of Christian periodicals. In Some Wildflower in My Heart, she crafts a stirring tale of faith taking root in rocky soil.As manager of an elementary school cafeteria, middle-aged Margaret Tuttle is objective and self-contained. She has no interest in emotions or attachments to those around her. But when Birdie Freeman begins to work for Margaret, things begin to change. With her childlike, unselfish, Christian love, Birdie touches everyone she meets. Soon, Margaret's heart opens in spite of her resolve to remain aloof.
Honest and unsentimental, this novel is a dramatic portrayal of the power of love and charity. Birdie's glowing optimism shines like a beacon throughout each chapter, and her gentle personality is captured in Cynthia Darlow's assured narration.

This Author did it again!!!

Jamie Langston Turner is one of the best authors I've ever "read." I'm still in the process of "reading" this book, but I can hardly wait to get back to it. I will tell you that this book is connected with the other 2 books. I hope Ms. Turner writes another book soon!

The Best of the Best! A Must Listen!

WOW. Where do I begin, of all the books I've listen too, thus far, this is truely the best of the best.

I was drawn into the story immediately and the narration was superb. And, although this story has religeous overtones, it was not preachy in the least. I also loved the fact that the author used real world events in telling this story, it made it more real.

I wish there were more people like Birdie in this world. As for me, I will strive to be more like her on a daily basis. I work customer service so I shall have lots of time to perfect the things that I learned from Birdie. There's something for everyone.

I have already started by buying the paperback version of this book for a dear friend of mine (she prefers to read). I truely hope she will enjoy this story as much as I have.

Final word: Don't pass this book by. I know I will listen to this book many times over. Again, A must listen.
