Reviewed by Darin Godby for Readers' Favorite

Nancy LaPonzina pens a wonderful story in her book entitled A Path Through The Garden. It is here that the reader will begin to see deep within the lives of several of the characters found in the book, whether it's the land-owner Peg, or a couple named Hal and Leyla Jo who want a child. They did great research concerning flowers and plants that could boost the reproductive glands within a woman's body. They found this wonderful plant while walking one day and encountering their new neighbor. Peg is full of life and loves to live on her own, taking care of her land. However, one day the bills get larger than the income and she determines she must sell a portion of the land, the portion that has those wonderful plants growing on them. Peg's son comes back to take care of her after she has a horrible accident. While there, he begins to see the importance of family and taking care of what is planted right under one's nose. He determines to move back and take care of the family land, the place where his roots are.

Author LaPonzina allows the reader to get caught up in adventure, sadness, laughter, and events that many could relate to as real life. The reader is kept in suspense as to what will happen concerning this loving couple and if they will be able to come up with a product that will assist them in having a newborn in their lives. This is a very interesting and rewarding book that readers will be glad they read.
