Product Description

Product Description

A few words of encouragement can stay with you for a lifetime. Robert and Brianna’s childhood friendship grew into respect for each other and their ideas. Robert gave her the confidence to stand up for herself. Brianna helped him see his artistic potential and encouraged him to travel for his inspiration. He found it in the letters she wrote.


After her mother abandoned her at sixteen and her stepfather beat her at eighteen, Brianna Carlson now struggles to care for her six-year-old half-sister, Chloe. The day before her twenty-first birthday, Brianna receives news that her stepfather will be released from prison. Half blind from a head injury and still limping from a once broken leg, she’s terrified he’ll come back to hurt Chloe this time. She decides to leave town.

Waiting for their five-year age gap to diminish, Robert Donovan purposely stayed away. While traveling for his family’s jewelry business, he designed The Garden Collection, his newest line of necklaces, bracelets, and earrings. Returning home, he discovers Brianna had lied in every letter she sent. She never received any of his. Before he can demand answers, she disappears without Chloe.

As Robert learns about Brianna’s life during his absence, he sets out to find her and convince her to trust him again. He hopes the innocent love of their youth is strong enough to heal her injured heart and fulfill his need for a home.

4.0 out of 5 stars The story hooks you in 22 July 2015
By KLV - Published on Amazon.com
>Book Review – The Garden Collection –

> This is a standalone novel and ends in an HEA.

> This story is told quite a bit through flashbacks. Usually flashbacks make a story hard to follow, but this author keeps everything flowing while using flashbacks. Sometimes the same scene is told from different points of view, each telling revealing a bit more understanding in to the depth of feeling Robert has for Brianna.

>The violence in the story is dealt with in such a way that it isn’t too hard to read. The romance was of a more suggestive, rather than descriptive nature and wasn’t explicit. Readers with experience will be able to “read between the lines”, but the romance is appropriate for a younger audience.

>The way the whole town falls in love and helps Brianna by tipping her extra so she can buy a dress and by helping to watch Chloe is heartwarming to see. The evil characters abound, though. Robert’s mom, Chloe’s dad and grown up bullies all add up to very realistic issues and mean people the reader can relate to.

>The only situation I found hard to believe was when Robert leaves for Italy after seeing proof that Brianna was being beaten. Knowing the depth of his love, how could he go away and stay away for 5 years? Their difference in age was not a good enough explanation. Watching the family dynamics in Robert’s home showed the strange way you can be both the child and the adult, during interactions with your parents.

>I am a reviewer for Paranormal Romance and Authors that Rock.

>This book is appropriate for a young (17+) audience.
5.0 out of 5 stars A love story on many levels 11 September 2015
By Kass - Published on Amazon.com
Tender and hopeful, painful and sad....this is my favorite story from Ms. Thompson. The struggle Brianna experiences is all too real...the sacrifices she makes and the lessons she learns along the way to her destiny, all make a sweetly intriguing story. And sometimes, a gentle word of encouragement truly IS all anyone needs.

I had a difficult time putting this book down once I started it. This is a love story on many levels.
5.0 out of 5 stars and true love kept me reading 6 March 2016
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
One of my favorites by Christina Thompson! The heart warming story of struggle, determination, heartache, and true love kept me reading, so that I could see what happened next. Robert and Brianna's relationship faces many obstacles as they grow up, but their connection endures. Brew a cup of coffee, grab a blanket and curl up with The Garden Collection. It will be time well spent.
5.0 out of 5 stars Great read with a good message. 1 September 2015

I loved this book. I couldn't put it down. The characters are great. Bullying is a real problem even in adulthood. I do believe that positive and encouraging words can change a life.
