Catherine Palmer is one of my favorite authors. I have read her books for several years now. I enjoy the action, adventure and animations she presents in her books. Leaves of Hope is another great adventure about a young adult woman, Beth Lowell. Beth was raised in Tyler, Texas (off to a great start already:). The book has a lot of East Texas in it including the Tyler Rose Gardens and Tyler Junior College. But off to adventure...so reading on, Beth finds a secret in her mother's closet and goes on an adventure seeking truth from the past. There is also a lot of scripture incorporated in this story....great thinking material. This story is mainly about mistakes, redemption and finding God's truth. A wonderful read!
