From the author of the beloved Mitford series — a timeless story of hope, faith, and the beauty of everyday miracles....
In this gently told parable, Jan Karon tells a story of patience, of the special rewards that come from being a little bit different from everyone else, and of the courage to believe in oneself.
In a picturesque and secluded garden, a tiny seed sits in thrilled anticipation of its destiny as a powerful vine, twisting and flowering through the white latticework trellis. But how could such a small seed ever thrive and grow into a strong, healthy, grown-up plant? Dont worry, Mother Earth says. God has planned something beautiful for you. But time passes, and the little seed doesnt believe it.
Beautifully illustrated and filled with faith and love, The Trellis and the Seed is Jan Karon at her very best — an inspiration for all ages and an important lesson on Gods love for all creatures great and small.
A small seed surprises itself by becoming a flowering moonflower vine.
