​Mrs. Brooke is frightened for her daughter, Marigold. Ever since Marigold began running around with Laurie Trescott she’s changed. Laurie is in a different class and worldly and Mrs. Brooke knows either Marigold will give in or get her feelings hurt.

Marigold can’t believe how she’s changed for Laurie! She barely recognizes herself anymore. Maybe a few days away with her mother with help Marigold gain some perspective… and turn her heart back to Christ.

Hott Review:

​What I love most about Marigold is the things her mother tells her about life, falling in love, and about God’s love for us.

I believe this book is perfect for Christian teens. The romance they desire is shown within Marigold’s pages while still reminding readers that we need to be patient for God’s gifts – they can’t be forced.
