Field of Daisies



Author: Barbara Hattemer

She knew it was love when he wove a chain of daisies for her hair.

Andrea and Lans Mulder met as young teenagers on Andrea’s family farm in Pennsylvania, renewed their romance as young adults during an enchanted week in Paris, and married in a storybook wedding in a field of daisies.

With two growing children, their life has been as close to perfect as you can imagine. But when the destructive degenerative disease of Alzheimer’s strikes the third generation of Andrea’s family, can even a made-for-each-other couple stand strong—and stay together? Especially when Andrea herself faces the worst news of her life?

A poignant tale of hope, faith, and the determination to beat seemingly impossible odds that might change yours, and your family’s lives, for generations to come!

You’ve provided redemptive treatment of a difficult subject.”

What Readers Are Saying about Field of Daisies:
“I can’t begin to imagine how you must feel. I know this is not the first book you have published, but I think this is the story you have wanted to tell. And you have told it so beautifully. I am awed by the gamut of human emotion you described so realistically and yet so poignantly.”
“I felt the pain of a too busy father and the expectations and demands of a controlling mother whose aspirations were never mine. I also keenly  related to the strain put on a marriage when one feels obligated to care for an elderly family member.”
“Isn’t that a worthy goal of an author? To provide opportunities for empathy, consolation, joy, affirmation, insight---oh, I could fill the page with a litany of my response to your characters, your descriptions of nature, your sensitivity to feelings.”
“I can imagine how many people will be positively affected by Field of Daisies. It is truly a gift.”
