The Sparrow Sisters by Ellen Herrick

The Sparrow Sisters  by  Ellen Herrick

  The Sparrow Sisters have lived in the tiny seaside town of Granite Point all their lives. They used the healing powers of their plants and flowers to ease the aches and pains of the people in their town. Their history goes back to their great-great grandmother and probably beyond. When a young boy in the town suddenly dies, who was treated recently by Patience Sparrow, things turn ugly. She is blamed by the people in the town as they turn against her.
  I found this to be an interesting read as I learned a lot about the healing powers of certain plants and flowers. The endurance of Patience Flowers and how she had to get the trust of the people back. It lacked some suspense for me, but I enjoyed reading it.
