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. Bethany is called back reluctantly to rural Iowa, when she receives an urgent message from her estranged mother.  A tragedy has struck in her hometown and Bethany determined to pay her respects, and trying to avoid any emotional entanglements. Bethany 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. 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? 
Show Less         Wildflowers from Winter is a touching tale about the power of love, faith and hope to heal a hurting heart, through seasons of grief. The romance in the novel started as a small spark that burns slowly but steadily. The characters grow from the very first page. Subtle twists to the plot keep the story always moving forward. Each new chapter brought something unexpected. 
Wildflowers from Winter was an amazing read! Real characters, real struggles, real dialogue. It is obvious that Ganshert’s heart comes through on the pages.

        Those of you who love Women’s fiction/romance, this book is for you. I received a copy of book for my review.
