Product Description

In need of his own redemption, Noah Carter finally confronts his childhood hero, the once-beloved uncle who betrayed him. Instead of vengeance, he offers forgiveness, also granting Uncle John a most curious request—for Noah to work on the ramshackle farm of Agnes Deveraux Keller, a French WWII survivor with dementia.
Despite all Agnes has lost, she still has much to teach Noah. But the pair’s unique friendship is threatened when Tayte, Agnes’s estranged granddaughter, arrives to claim a woman whose circumstances and abilities are far different from those of the grandmother she once knew.
Items hidden in Agnes’s attic raise painful questions about Tayte’s dead parents, steeling Tayte’s determination to save Agnes, even if it requires her to betray the very woman she came to save, and the secret her proud grandmother has guarded for seventy years.
The issue strains the fragile trust between Tayte and Noah, who now realizes Tayte is fighting her own secrets, her own dragons. Weighed down by past guilt and failures, he feels ill-equipped to help either woman, until he remembers Agnes’s lessons about courage and love. In order to save Agnes, the student must now become the teacher, helping Tayte heal—for Agnes’s sake, and for his.

It is hard to put into words how impressed I was with this book. I thought it was different than anything I have every read before. It is full of so many raw emotions. It includes several of the hard experiences that life can offer.

The book revolves around three main characters and their "dragons" that they don't want to face. Between these three characters, there is dementia, abuse, neglect, betrayal, denial, abandonment, broken hearts, family secret, and so much more. I couldn't believe how more and more of these deep emotions were piled onto these characters, and yet it was done is a realistic way. I never felt like anything was overdone. It made each character feel real which helped me relate more to the story.

I definitely would recommend this book to anyone and everyone. There is so much to learn from it. I think everyone can apply themselves to an element within this story.

I also love the focus on art and carpentry. They are two things that I find to be beautiful, so I love to read about it.

Agnes is an 82 years old widow who has lived a hard life and is now battling Dementia. She lives alone on her farm, Alsace and is haunted by her past, ghosts and dragons. Sarah, her neighbour is her one link to a normal world.

Noah Carter’s tragic childhood has left him a shy and unsure loner. He has made a life for himself in Myrtle Beach South Carolina but that life is about to be turned upside down as he finally faces and Uncle who has been searching for him for many years. Finally reunited with family and to help ease Sarah’s burden, Noah finds himself at Alsace farm helping the often confused old lady.

Tayte was left alone and neglected as a child and finds it hard to trust and let people in. As she arrives in town for the funeral of her estranged parents, Tayte is reunited with a Grandmother she has not seen since she was a little girl.

The unlikely three are thrown together, under very trying circumstances, with each of them fighting their own demons and secrets from the past. Will they each be able to heal and find their own redemption and love and be able to make a normal life or will they fail in this thing called life? Will the secrets be too much and cause trouble than they can handle?

The Dragons of Alsace Farm is a very emotional journey and the characters definitely capture your heart. It is well worth the read.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Heartfelt Must Read 21 October 2016
By K. Swinton - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
First, you should know there are no mythical beast dragons in this book. Dragons are a metaphor for dark thoughts, demons from the past, and fears that need confronting and slaying.

Now that we've cleared the air, this book is a must read by Laurie Lewis.

The character conflicts are strong, the emotional depth serious, and the twists unexpected. I couldn't have guessed this plot line if I tried, other than the romantic thread. This is definitely a character driven story, but the setting is not to be overshadowed. It is its own charcter too and plays a pivotal role in the tale. If only we all had such farms to go to.

This book gets down to a personal level on multiple fronts and is hard to put down. Ms. Lewis is certainly in her element when writing from the heart. I expect her work will continue to be that way, thank goodness.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love this! 5 August 2016
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Such a tender story! "Dragons" will make you think, teach you a lesson or two, and warm your heart.

All of us are "broken" in some way or other. Life isn't always kind. The same holds true for Noah, Agnes and Tatye. Their story reminds us that relationships are everything; that love can heal pain and patience is it's own reward.

Ms Lewis has given us a peek inside the the confusing, painful world of dementia. If you have a loved one who is struggling with cognitive issues, you will especially appreciate how the plot reflects our growing understanding of these diseases and their impact on family and friends.

"The Dragons of Alsace Farm" will make you want to be a little more kind, a little more patient, and a little more compassionate as you navigate the complexities of family relationships.

5.0 out of 5 stars I was deeply moved by this powerful story of faith, forgiveness, redemption, and love 4 October 2016
By Christine T, Hall - Published on Amazon.com

It has been over a year since I first read the manuscript of Laurie Lewis’ latest book, The Dragons of Alsace Farm. As I read the final page, I knew this book was one I would recommend to family and friends over and over again, and I couldn't wait to hold a published copy in my hands. I had been deeply moved by this powerful story of faith, forgiveness, and love.

I recently read it again, now a polished, published book, and I was thrilled to finally get to hold it in my hands. The beautiful cover offers meaningful clues to the story within. In the year that has passed since I read the Dragons manuscript, I had not forgotten the strong and resilient main characters. Their powerful stories gave me hope, changed my heart, and provided the very answers to a question I had been struggling to find. It has been a long while since I've read a book whose characters have stayed with me as long as these have.

The Dragons of Alsace Farm is the story of four people, all dealing with sorrow, anger, confusion and heartache, whose lives converge at a critical moment in their lives. The rock solid characterizations of Noah, John, Tayte, and Agnes will remain with you long after you have read the final chapter. If you have ever dealt with aging parents as they clung to the freedom and energy of days gone by, or have been innocently or accidentally wounded by a loved one, you will love this book. If you have ever been the one who hurt another through your words or actions, you will feel peace. Through these timeless characters you may recognize your own story, and find answers you have been searching for, as they ultimately experience faith, forgiveness, redemption and love.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love always wins.......Good always prevails 8 September 2016
By Cynthia Packer - Published on Amazon.com

I Loved this book. The storyline, the characters, it is a heartwarming story. All your emotions, life lessons, growing up, growing old, happy, sad, angry.. I couldn't put it down. I started to read the introduction, I was hooked. My favorite kind of book. Laurie wrote a wonderful story that grabs you and doesn't let go> I didn't want the story to end. She even handed a bit of a mystery and surprise in the mix. I enjoy Nicholas Spark books, they are some of my favorites, but The Dragons of Alsace Farms goes right there with them. I read it on kindle but I will be buying the book itself so I can read it again. Thank you Laurie for a wonderful story... A must read.
