There's something amazing happening at Pleasant Manor-a care center at the very edge of town. Using the wondrous power of love, a little girl named Rose is creating miracles in the lives of its residents. One by one, she touches the hearts of her new friends — Cleston, Helen, Jake, Fred, and Ina — with the light of hope.
Most important to Rosie, though, is Bessie.
Rosie and Bessie become inseparable best friends. Day by day Bessie teaches Rosie invaluable life lessons, including "Home is a place where you are surrounded by love." Just before Christmas, when the woman who had taught her so much about living speaks of dying, Rosie learns what true love, beauty, and friendship really mean. Her understanding is an invaluable gift for all. (Publisher website)
