Without looking back, Lily-with her fear of flying-boards a jumbo jet and embarks on a quest to find her sister which leads half way around the world to Melbourne, Australia. Befriended by imprudent Ausie, he might prove to be the key to finding her sister. But her journey becomes a circle that leads her back home to attempt a family reunion and to find the one dream she no longer imagined possible-the chance to fall in love again.
My Book Review:
Winter In Full Bloom is a wonderful story that delves into the intricate facets of family relationships: from long held secrets to strained relationships, Lily Winter embarks on a journey to find a way to mend the family bonds with love, forgiveness, acceptance, faith, hope and redemption.
Written in the first person narrative and set between Houston, Texas and Melbourne, Australia, author Anita Higman weaves an inspirational tale that captivates the reader's attention from the start as they follow Lily's journey in search of Camille, her identical twin sister that she never knew due to her estranged mother's deception and long held secret. Traveling halfway around the world, little does Lily know that her search will change the way she views her life, she confronts the demons in her past, and learns to accept the present, with a chance to move forward and open herself to love once again.
I loved this story, from the conversational style of the first person narrative, to the vivid descriptive settings of Houston and Melbourne, to the memorable cast of characters, Lily's story unfolds before the reader in a way that transports the reader into the story as if you were sitting right next to Lily. It is an emotional, heartwarming and inspirational story that tugs at the heartstrings. It provides the reader with hope and faith that family bonds and romantic relationships can weather the best and worse of life's challenges. Lily's journey of self discovery comes full circle with amazing grace: that what was once lost can be found.
Winter In Full Bloom is a wonderful story of love, faith, hope, trust, forgiveness, healing, and redemption. The author provides the reader with a gentle reminder of the Christian message that God does have a plan for everyone's life.
RATING: 4 STARS ****
