BOOK REVIEW: Wildflowers from Winter

Wildflowers from Winter

Architect Bethany Quinn has it all.  She has a job in a prestigious law firm in Chicago and a great boyfriend.  And she has successfully put behind her the life before her success.  Before she became a confident, driven career woman.  Until she receives news from home that her beloved grandfather (whom she has made no attempt to see in the past ten years) has suffered a heart attack. 

Bethany rushes home to Iowa for a short visit and immediately meets farmhand Evan Price.  Who is this man, anyway.  And what is he doing LIVING in her grandfather's home? 

Bethany also reluctantly renews her friendship with her once best friend (again, someone she has been out of contact with for the past ten years) and helps her deal with the tragic, unexpected loss of her husband, who also happened to be the brother of Evan Price.

As quickly as possible Bethany wraps up her business in Iowa and returns to Chicago, where a chain of events which could only be brought about by the Lord drives her back to Iowa and a wealth of what she considers problems resulting from her grandfather's death.

Author Katie Ganshert skillfully weaves a tale of returning home, facing your past and renewing your faith in the Lord into a beautiful story of love.  Wildflowers from Winter is now one of my new favorites -- who would believe this is her debut novel?  I will definitely be looking forward to more from Mrs. Ganshert.
