In the Garden with Billy: Lessons about Life, Love, and Tomatoes by Renea Winchester is a true story and one that I enjoy sharing with my online friends. I’m giving away this book for the 3rd time. The message is a sweet one and shows the true heart of a gardener. Renea opened up her heart and reached out to Billy, the older gentleman farmer, who loves farming, Fords, and fried bologna sandwiches.
Billy and Renea became friends and garden buddies. Billy is as independent as they come for his 80+ years but Renea has enriched his life by lending a helping hand with planting and harvesting. She also makes sure Billy is taken care of for things he pays no attention to at times. He is deeply faithful in his obedience to God and mostly trust the good Lord to provide at all times. God sent Renea to make sure Billy is carrying on comfortably. They both understand what a blessing it is to have pursued this friendship in God’s presence.
In the Garden with Billy makes you laugh and cry as Renea describes what happens when a city girl meets a seasoned garden pro. They are both going through their own personal struggles because both are dealing with being caretakers of sick loved ones. You’ll have to read the book to discover how Renea and Billy help each other face the challenges of life, love, and tomatoes.
