I loved Wildflowers from Winter and enjoyed every minute spent savoring this well written novel! The book shifts at times to the past when Bethany and Robin are younger, which creatively adds substance and depth to the storyline. A novel of hardship, romance, heartbreak and redemption will create many enjoyable hours spent getting to know these well developed and interesting characters. Dialogue and scenery worked and flowed well with no dull parts. I was entertained and found the overall message inspiring! I would highly recommend this book to others. I received this book for free from Waterbrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review.
