 During one of the most trying periods in American history,  the Dust Bowl Era, when the dust storms came and scoured the earth, a little girl  nurtures a courageous seedling she found trying to survive in the harsh and unforgiving conditions. She knows the blooms would bring a smile to her Mama’s tired face, as she has heard stories of the garden she used to keep.  What she doesn’t know is that the little flower promises something even more precious: Hope.
