Summary "In the early 1900s, housewife Hulda Klager reads a book that changes her life forever, leading her to develop over 200 new varieties of lilacs that she gives away or sells to individuals as a way of sharing beauty. Her commitment to creation--struggling against flooding rivers and the vagaries of hybrid plants--while living through family losses and challenges is a story of perseverance and generosity that culminates when, in a time of great need, the people who Hulda gifted with beauty return to her life to help her start over"-- Provided by publisher.

SRP 2012 REVIEW: Christian fiction book - the woman in story was an avid gardner. She worked and worked on her lilacs to kinda 'cross-breed' them to get different shades of the color wanted. She was really kind of ahead of her time..this story was in the late 1800 to early 1900's. Story about her family's struggles and the joy her flowers brought her and many others.
