“I lived the story over sixty years ago,” says Charles Peters, “and wanted to share how I persevered despite adverse circumstances.” In the story, we are first introduced to Billy when he is eight years old. It’s the late 1940s, and the backdrop is an old farmhouse near Hartley in northwest Iowa where Billy lives with his parents and twelve brothers and sisters.

As his Mama lies dying, he brings her wild flowers to brighten her days. “If we think about it,” she has always told him, “flowers tell a story.” Thorns tell us to protect ourselves. Stems that are straight and strong tell us how to live our lives.

Verdant green leaves represent life’s experiences, blooms signify love, and buds bring the promise of a new day. Following her death, Billy never forgets her words as he faces rejection from all sides, from Grandpa turning his back on him when Grandma becomes too ill to care for her grandson, to Papa sending him to a boys and girls home, where he is continually passed over by prospective adoptive parents.

However, Mama taught him good values, and how Billy supports and comforts the other children in the home is deeply heartwarming. Universally appealing, this truly inspirational book was written for seniors who enjoy reminiscing about the good old days, for the middle-aged who are curious as to how their parents lived, and for youngsters who wonder what life was like without cell phones, computers, or television. Whatever their age, it’s guaranteed readers will become so engrossed, they will find it impossible to put this book down until they reach the very last page.

What we are left to think about is how, throughout the story, love is so profoundly expressed as an everlasting bond that often makes two hearts appear as one. With its happy ending, Billy Oliver is definitely a book readers will want to keep and treasure forever.
