At age 18, Bethany Quinn left her emotionally scarred childhood in small town America behind forever. Or so she thought. Ten years later, a series of tragic events draws her from the comfort of her life in Chicago back to her grandfatherâ€™s farm in Peaks, Iowa. She must now face the peopleâ€“and the Godâ€“she left behind.
â€œWildflowers From Winterâ€ is a gripping story of loss, love, and faith. We have all experienced painful events we would rather forget, and thatâ€™s what makes it so easy to relate to this book.
Ganshertâ€™s debut novel reminds us that our hearts can not fully heal until we make peace with the past. Her characters are realistic, and the writing is engaging. I found myself hooked from the beginning, and Iâ€™m looking forward to the release of the sequel.
I gave this book a ranking of 4 out of 5.
