About Love is a Rose
Instead of a novel, Pamela S. Thibodeaux brought a nonfiction book of devotionals, inspired by the song The Rose sung by Country & Western artist Conway Twitty. She says: "God opened my spirit to a deeper understanding of the abundance of His grace and mercy through the words of the song."

When did you write Love is a Rose?

I initially wrote Love is a Rose in 1995 with the hope of having it published as a gift book along with a CD of the song, The Rose.

What was the spark that gave you the story idea?

I’ve always been a huge Country Music fan and in 1995 the song, The Rose, sung by Conway Twitty came on the radio right after my morning prayer time. Much to my surprise, Scriptures and quotes from the Bible and other biblically focused books came to mind that coincided with each verse of the song! Well I immediately wrote those down. A friend provided poetry to go along with the scripture and text. However when I began pitching it to publishers, I found out all the legalities about using the lyrics and that the poetry didn’t actually add to the overall depth of the book. I deleted the poems and fleshed out each verse and Scripture and then included thoughts (seeds to ponder) and a prayer.

Why do readers buy Love is a Rose?

As a devotional with examples of how each scripture and verse applied to my life, as well as lined pages for reflection, Love is a Rose is perfect for those who enjoy devotional books.
