Table of contents

Chris's yard soon becomes a gathering place for friends and neighbors who want to see what these flowers are all about. More than this though, Chris is able to have time to have "conversations" with the moonflower. Having struggled with ADD her whole life, Chris has often found it hard to sit still. However, with the moonflower she is able to sit back and reflect on things.

She has great realizations regarding blooming when she is ready and accepting herself as she is among other things. These are all lessons we could stand to learn. I absolutely loved this book. Just reading about the calming effects the moonflower had on Chris seemed to have a bit of the same effect on me. I think so many times we get caught up in this super busy life without having time to just sit and reflect on things. We could all use some moonflowers in our life that help us to accept and love ourselves faults and all.

I highly recommend this book to everyone. I have a feeling I will start giving these out as gifts. It is short and sweet, so anyone can find the time to read it. The lessons Chris learned while talking to the moonflower are universal. This world would be a much better place if we could all find moonflowers of our own. Book provided by publisher for review. Aug 13, Misty rated it really liked it Shelves: When you read Conversations with a Moon flower, you can tell Chris is naturally cheerful. Perhaps even a little harried at times. Yes, like so many of us, Chris found herself at a point in her life when she was busy with her job, her family, and her church.

But then a gift from a friend, her first moon flower plant, presented her the opportunity and excuse! As Chris's neighbors began noticing the bench in her yard that, oddly, faced her house, she had the nightly opportunity of sharing the moon flower with her neighbors. Now with her book, she is sharing her experience with many more people as she describes some of the realizations she came to while sitting near her moon flower and waiting for it to bloom. At first, Chris's conversations with the moon flower are almost whimsical, but as she gets better at listening to the moon flower, the questions and answers get deeper.

The insights come more easily. The feelings become more profound. While Chris and I differ in one major way I am really good at taking time to sit still! I still found areas of similarity, things in the book I could identify with. My favorite part of the book was Chris's story about bungee jumping. Chris, I had to put the book down to cry and cry for you, for all of us I guess.

In today's world we all are running at such a frantic pace that most of us don't take the time to stop and look around at the things that should be the most important to us.

This is a quiet little book that centers around an interesting flower that blooms only at night. When it blooms, the process is fast and amazing. The real story is the insights the owner of the plant gleans from the quiet moments she sits waiting for the flower's spectacular show and the growth she experiences as she shares the blooming experience with others.

I've never been impressed much with all the "little insightful" books that appear around Mothers' Day, Easter, Christm I liked it! I've never been impressed much with all the "little insightful" books that appear around Mothers' Day, Easter, Christmas, etc. This one isn't connected to a holiday, it isn't sappy sentimental, doesn't have a calculated tears moment, but is simply truthful, thoughtful, and interesting.

Besides I have great memories of two different varieties of night blooming flowers and this one greatly appealed to me. This is a well written book and not to long or to short.

I enjoyed it's review at our Literary Guild Meeting and immediately came home and downloaded it on Kindle and read it that night. I recommend this to all types of readers. Several of my family and neighbors have enjoyed the book as well. Chris has a talent for teaching through her story. See all 35 reviews. Most recent customer reviews. Published 1 year ago.
