    One thought on “Mulberry Park

    1. Debbie Oxier on said:

      This was a fantastic story. Didn't want to put it down. Claire went to work day after day, put her time in, then after work made her way to Mulberry Park where she would go on a run. She hoped to dull her senses, wear herself out, anything to escape the pain of having lost her son three years ago. Unable to let go of the past and move on, she'd watched her husband walk away from their marriage. Her best friend, Vickie, who'd been there for her when Erik died, no longer called her regularly and C [...]

      This was a very sweet, heartwarming book. It is a book with a few different people all dealing with grief and how they meet and help each other heal. A little girl, Analisa, has an unwavering faith in God that confuses them all, but makes them all take a step back and reconsider faith and God. Yes, it was a little sappy and tied up too neatly in a bow at the end, but it was good. For someone like me, who is still dealing with the deaths of my children, it was a nice reminder of how I need to hea [...]

      This book speaks of healing from deep within by pushing aside our pains to reach out to someone in need. God often gives us what we need by putting in our life/path a person[s:], but the difficulty is can we step away from our pain to minister to that someone else? When we are able to do that, the rewards are many.

    4. Gin on said:

      A sweet, quick-paced story about loss, love, friendship, and faith. The ending seemed a bit too contrived but the overall story and character development had appeal.

    5. Sara on said:

      Such a sweet story of how the faith of one little girl touches the lives of those around her. I loved how the lives of many converged and affected each other, loving and healing.

      In the San Diego suburb of Fairbrook, past Applewood Drive and up First Street, lies Mulberry Park, a peaceful haven for locals from all walks of life. And at the center of its lush green lawn grows a massive mulberry tree—tall enough to take a most precious wish as high as it can go, and to open a few hearts along the wayEach day after work, Claire Harper drives to Mulberry Park and jogs for miles, hoping to find a respite from her sadness. It's futile, until the evening a letter falls from it [...]

      Romanul a aparut in limba romana sub titlul de " Legaturi miraculoase", publicat de editura Litera in colectia " Romane de dragoste". Cartea ofera o lectura atractiva, sentimentala, luminoasa si plina de optimism exact acele lucruri de care avem imperioasa nevoie la un moment dat. Personajele principale sunt adunate toate in parcul Mulberry in zilele extremd e calduroase ale unei luni iulie, fiecare fiind prezent din alt motiv sau motive extrem de personale. Cea care intr-un fel este responsabil [...]

      I’ve just finished reading Mulberry Park by Judy Duarte. It may be the first Christian novel in quite a while to move me almost to tears. It’s set in the area round a small park, where people who hardly talk to each other are bound to turn out to be neighbors. Over time, the good, the bad and the indifferent prove to be friends as well. The story centers on a young girl who’s lost her parents and a middle-aged woman who’s lost her child. Somewhere along the way the woman also lost her fa [...]

      I didn't think "Mulberry Park" was as good as "Entertaining Angels", the first book in the Fairbrook series. I loved the seven-year-old Analisa because, even though she had lost both of her parents, she still had a child's pure and innocent faith. Her letters to God were absolutely the best part of the book. It made me smile that she mailed her letters to God by placing them high in the Mulberry tree in the park.What I found objectionable about the book is that there were too many chance connect [...]

    11. Claudia on said:

      To accept this plot and enjoy the book, the reader has to believe that there are no coincidences, only tender mercies and miracles. If the reader believes that the events in the book are just coincidences, then the plot would be just too farfetched. Six-year-old Analisa loses her missionary parents in two separate sudden deaths and goes to live with her uncle Sam, a successful lawyer in Fairbrook, a suburb of San Diego. Believing that we can communicate with God and get answers from him, she wri [...]

      Maybe this is just a "knee-gut reaction," but I did not enjoy this. I usually find myself in one of two states of mind when reading a book -- either I enjoy it so much that I want to stay up as long as possible to keep reading it, or I hate it so much that it takes weeks to finish (I refuse to quit a book on principle (I did quit Ulysses, but I fully intend to go back to that)). Now, I'll have to add a third category -- a book I hate so much that I stay up way too late just to get it over with.U [...]

      Claire discovers a letter written by a little girl to God while jogging in the park. Intrigued, she reads it and discovers that the little girl has questions about the death of her parents. Wanting to console the little girl, Claire writes back to her and sticks her letter in the branches of the tree where she found it. Thus begins a story of several people suffering the losses of life who form a community centered around the park where Claire found the letter--and the faith and prayers of a lit [...]

    14. Barbarac on said:

      There's so many books and stories about children sending letters to God that it gets a bit tiresome. It was a good story and I did appreciate the characters, even though some of their stories seemed unfinished. But it was all too "happy ending" mushy at the end. All these people and all of them end up having the perfect ending, I understand they are hinting "miracle" here, but it just didn't ring true. I don't know, maybe I've turn into a skeptic and I need my own personal miracle to turn around [...]

    15. Michele Minor on said:

      This is a good book where the adult characters learn something from a simple little girl's faith. When Claire starts to answer a little girl's letter to God she starts to have faith in God again after her son's death three years ago. The man who had killed her son in a hit and run accident is up for parole and his own son is hoping that his father will come home soon along with his young girlfriend who is caring for the young man. Also an older man's faith is reestablished when he finds a new fr [...]

      After the first few chapters, I could see where the book was going, but I wanted to go with it. And there were a few surprises that I really enjoyed. Katie was one of them (no spoilers here). The author did a good job of offering a Christian theme while demonstrating how many people struggle with faith. And I will admit to a few tears at the end. Ms. Duarte has an easy style of writing. A worthwhile read.

    18. Christina on said:

      This book was an EXCELLENT read!!!!!! The characters are so intertwined though out the whole book. The challenges they all face are heart breaking, I cried a few times while reading. This book also has a lot of characters asking God what is right, what is wrong and do you really believe in him. For anyone looking for a good read this is absoulutely the one you need to pick up.

    19. Charise on said:

      This is a sweet, Christian religion toned story that holds no surprises, but is a nice quick read that can give you hope in the same way that an episode of 7th Heaven or Touched by an Angel can. It explores themes of forgiveness and faith, and it will make you want to go hang out in the park in your neighborhood and make friends with the people that hang out there.

      What happens when Annalisa, a 6 year-old orphan, writes a letter to Goad after the death of her parents? She leaves the note in a tree in the park and it lands in the hands of a mother grieving the loss of her 9 year old son. What happens when she answers it for God? it was such a beautiful book about loss and forgiveness and the blind and complete faith of a child.

    21. Tiana on said:

      Honestly? Giving this 2 stars is pushing it. It waswhatever for the first half. Then it became over-the-top saccharine and moralizing. The ending was super contrived, and the writing wasn't anything great.

    22. Kendra on said:

      I applauded Claire for going out and excepting a young boy whose father caused her so much grieve, helping a young girl to have faith and bringing an old man a friend for life. in the end I was very surprised and happy for this book and will look for more of them

      A very heartwarming story about a little girls faith and how she helps the broken people who touch her life.

      This is a sweet story that focuses on the importance of faith, friendship, and forgivness.

      An inspiring tale that left me appreciating life and all that there is to offer.
