Description

"Mad" Marina Lowery is a modern-day saint with the feisty spirit of a radical. At age 86, she's still tilting at windmills in the Briarwood Home for the Aged. When Marina discovers an evil plot against her comatose roommate, hatched by the Home's "denizens of darkness," will her heroic rescue result in tragedy? Straitlaced Primrose Lowery battles lifelong resentment of her flamboyant, eccentric mother. Through her friendship with the Barringers, a very different mother-daughter pair at the Home, Primrose is forced to face the darkness of her own soul. But will her new self-awareness enable her to love and forgive . . . or drive her into deeper darkness? "Frumpy" Meg Barringer has the mind of a small girl and the heart of a rabbit. A disappointment to her strong-minded and beauty-loving mum, she finds a special friend in Marina-who uncovers Meg's hidden beauty, wisdom, and courage, all stemming from her genius for love. But will Meg's newfound freedom to love with boldness lead her into a different kind of struggle? At age 86, Celeste Barringer is still a beauty . . . on the outside. But she knows her inner self could do with a bit of fixing up-especially when it comes to her shame over her devoted yet "subnormal" daughter Meg. Through her friendship with the Lowerys, can Celeste learn to to accept Meg in all her imperfections? And can she pass the lessons of love she's learned on to the embittered Primrose? Two mothers. Two daughters. Two life-changing friendships. Four women struggling to find love, acceptance, and forgiveness. Set in a British nursing home in the early 80's, The Seed tells a universal tale of redemption . . . against an underlying battle between the powers of light and darkness.show more
