The Newbery Award-winning author of Across Five Aprils and Up a Road Slowly presents the story of a young boy from a troubled family who learns what it means to love...

Abused by his mother and her boyfriend, Georgie Burgess learns to hide his hurt. He withdraws into a safe and secret world of beautiful gardens filled with roses—just like those in the library book he treasures.

When Georgie wins a small rosebush in a grocery store lottery he gives it all the love and caring he’s never had. Georgie’s life begins to open up for him when the courts send him to a home for boys where he will be safe. Slowly, and not without pain, Georgie learns to give—and to receive—love...

About the Author:

Irene Hunt was the author of many distinguished books for young readers. Her first novel, Across Five Aprils, was a Newberry Award nominee and received a Lewis Carroll Shelf Award. Her second novel, Up a Road Slowly, was awarded the Newberry Medal in 1966. Ms. Hunt was born in southern Illinois and received degrees from the University of Illinois and the University of Colorado. For many years she taught in the public schools of northern Illinois, and later taught psychology at the University of South Dakota. She died in 2001.

From AudioFile:

In a horrifying, yet ultimately triumphant, psychological study of child abuse and recovery, Georgie Burgess struggles to survive, first physically in a hostile environment, then spiritually in the boys school to which he is removed. George Guidall's delivery of the third-person narration is consistently faithful to the main character's viewpoint. Subtle changes in pacing, pitch and accent suitably define important secondary characters. Throughout, Guidall's gentle voice aptly conveys the damaged child's thoughts, feelings and intentions, often defiant or confused, occasionally wondrous or joyous. Emotionally powerful and heartrending, Guidall's narration will haunt the listener long after its conclusion. T.B. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
