JENNY'S STORY

Her life had just fallen apart, where could she turn for help?

by Judy Baer
Published by Tyndale House
ISBN:0842319220

Three girls, Jenny, Libby and Tia, have pacted together to be friends forever. Now they are grown up and Jenny is in a deep depression. She has recently been widowed, and her forever friends rally around to comfort and care for her and draw her out.

Jenny struggles to start doing things for herself, and is encouraged when a wounded dog shows up at her door and she makes an effort to feed and care for him. A neighbour points out her yard needs attention and she calls a Nursery for some things.

Then she learns some more devastating news.

Eventually, Jenny learns to reach out and to start making decisions for herself again, but this story demonstrates the advantage of having close friends to stand by one.

Naturally, there is a romance angle too, woven in very well, as Jenny gets to know the gardener who is turning her yard into a lovely paradise.

I would not be surprised if Judy Baer now writes Libby's story, and then also Tia's. Each time showing how the other friends rally round and help out the hurting one. Watch for a trilogy.
