The Blue Roses

By The Texarkana Gazette

The Blue Roses, Linda Boyden’s first published book, is a sensitive and insightful look into the ache and bewilderment children face at the loss of a loved one. . . . The book exemplifies a family bond often overlooked or absent in current society, and introduces children to the natural beauty of a garden. Life lessons abound in the pages, with undercurrents of Native American mystery and vision. . . . this book will be just as attractive and entertaining to adults as children. . . . The book ends on a delightful note, and leaves a feeling of peace and hope.
