Reverend John Harris is no stranger to trouble. Plagued by controversy for years, he moves his family to Pine Springs, Texas, in hopes that they will be able to make a new start. What they discover, however, is that Pine Springs has more than its share of problems. Convinced that her step-mother will never be able to understand her, schoolteacher Amanda Brooks moves out on her own, only to discover that her neighbors are harboring a dreadful secret. Robert and Lily Brooks suffer a tragedy that threatens to tear them apart. Will their marriage survive? The citizens of Pine Springs learn much as they experience both the joy and the pain that life brings. They must each make the choice to follow the path that God has for them. Only then will they truly be a part of Heaven's Garden. Kristie Self has a background in music and education. She has a degree in music from Howard Payne University and a life-long love of writing.
