In our first book in the Gospa series, Jewel of the Adriatic, on April 7th, 1992, rose petals rained on three teenagers walking past a craggy hill in their village, Valselo, near the Adriatic coast. The deluge stopped, and high on this hill, they saw a remarkably beautiful young woman with a child in her arms. They immediately thought that she was Jesus’ mother. She didn’t say anything to them but gestured for them to come closer. They were scared and ran. These three children were Anna, Elizabeta and Josip, who despite their fear, returned to the hill and were rewarded with another visitation by the mother of God, lovingly referred to as Our Lady of the Roses. Daily apparitions continued for decades as the visionaries became adults, guided by the heavenly visitor to pray, open their hearts fully to the salvation of Christ and carry her messages to the world in discipleship. Josip became a priest, instructed to pray for vocations. Elizabeta became a wife and mother, dedicated to praying for unbelievers. And Anna, also a wife and mother, was given the role of divulging secrets concerning all of mankind to an ordained priest, three days before the predicted events occur. In Rose of the Desert, we meet the “Belles of St. Mary’s”, lifelong girlfriends who have shared everything with each other since they met in grammar school. Or have they? When experiencing the all-knowing, forgiveness of God’s presence, will they change so they never have anything to hide again? The Belles’ lives intersect with Anna Babic’s when Anna travels to the United States to fulfill her heavenly appointed mission. Now the time has come.

My Review

Rose in the Desert is my first introduction to the work of the duo K M Daughters. It will not be my last book I will read by them. This is one of the stories that really makes a reader think. I loved the element of faith and hope within the pages. I enjoyed the characters. I found that many readers would be able to relate to. This is not a story that I was able to predict easily, which made me to keep reading until I read all the way to the end. It was so very good. 

Rose in the Desert is getting a very well deserved five plus stars from me. I highly recommend it for readers who enjoy clean and inspiring Contemporary fiction. I will most definitely be looking for more by K M Daughters in the future. This one is not one to be missed.

I received Rose in the Desert from the publisher. This review is one hundred percent my own honest opinion.
