From the Vault: White Roses

Today's Book From the Vault is:
White Roses by Shannon Taylor Vannatter

Grayson can't seem to move on.

Pastor Grayson Sterling loves his wife. The problem is, Sara was killed by a hit-and-run driver two years ago. Grayson knows he needs to move on, that the continuing depth of his grief is not healthy for him or his young son. Desperate, he convinces his church to hire Mark Welch as associate pastor to relieve him of some of his load. When Adrea Welch arrives at his church with her brother, Grayson cannot deny his attraction to her.

For years, florist Adrea Welch has been artfully arranging white roses for Sara Sterling. Now those flowers are carried to the cemetery by a faithful, grieving husband. How can Adrea be so attracted to a man still devoted to his dead wife?

When secrets from Adrea's past collide with their building relationship, both she and Grayson must learn to lean on God's abiding wisdom.

I just love the name Grayson! Tell me, do you have a favorite character name?


  1. I love "old-fashioned" sounding names, LOL! Three of my very favorites are Sadie, Gracie, and Josie. :)

  2. I give my heroes all my favorite names. Some of them were on my list to name my son, but at the bottom of my husband's list.

  3. I love coming up with character names. I consider era, ethnicity, meaning, sound.

    There's one name I came across while studying MN history that I would love to put in a novel, but I haven't found just the right character yet.

    Cadwallader. Isn't that something? I'll find somewhere for it someday. :)

  4. Wow. How in the world would you say that name?

  5. Grayson is perfect name for the character....I read the book and loved it!!!
