Wildflowers from Winter by Katie Ganshert* A Review

ABOUT Wildflowers from Winter by Katie Ganshert

A young architect at a prestigious Chicago firm, Bethany Quinn has built a life far removed from her trailer park teen years. Until an interruption from her estranged mother reveals that tragedy has struck in her hometown and a reluctant Bethany is called back to rural Iowa. Determined to pay her respects while avoiding any emotional entanglements, she vows not to stay long. But the unexpected inheritance of farmland and a startling turn of events in Chicago forces Bethany to come up with a new plan.

Handsome farmhand Evan Price has taken care of the Quinn farm for years. So when Bethany is left the land, he must fight her decisions to realize his dreams. But even as he disagrees with Bethany's vision, Evan feels drawn to her and the pain she keeps so carefully locked away.

For Bethany, making peace with her past and the God of her childhood doesn't seem like the path to freedom. Is letting go the only way to new life, love and a peace she's not even sure exists?

Katie Ganshert was born and raised in the Midwest, where she currently writes inspirational romance novels set in present-day America. When she's not busy plotting ways to get her hero and heroine to fall in love, she enjoys watching movies with her husband, playing make-believe with her wild-child of a son, and chatting with her girlfriends over bagels and coffee. She could talk books all day and is often spotted around town pushing a stroller, walking her dog, and reading--all at the same time.

  Wildflowers from Winter  by Katie Ganshert is such a wonderful book. I love the title and cover, because it really goes along with the story.
  This book tells us that even when you go through horrible tradgeies and hardships God can still work in your life if you let Him.  You may still hate what happened or what you are going through, but you can see His hand and feel His love.
  Bethany and Robin were such close friends in high school and they both needed each other badly, but after college and careers they drifted apart mainly because of Bethany’s feelings about God.
  In Wildflowers from Winter Bethany gets called back to her little hometown that she would love to forget because her grandfather had a heart attack and also her former friend’s husband was dieing.  She wants to pay her respects and be gone from past memories and failures. Little does Bethany know of the things that will happen and change her circumstances.
  I really like this book because it shows us that even when horrible things happens God will help us and also things in the past can be forgiven and forgotten. This is a sweet story that I recommend.
