Winter In Full Bloom

Lily Winter’s wings are folded so tightly around her daughter that when empty nest arrives, she feels she can no longer fly. But Lily’s lonely, widowed life changes in a heartbeat when she goes to visit a woman who is almost a stranger to her-a woman who also happens to be her mother.

During their fiery reunion, her mother reveals a dark family secret that she’d been hiding for decades-Lily has an identical twin sister who was put up for adoption when they were just babies. 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.

 Cafe Lily's Review:

Hands down, this was my favorite book so far by Anita Higman. It was dark and emotional at times, but completely held my interest from start to finish. I was immediately drawn into the story and captivated by the complex relationships.  (Not to mention, the cover is absolutely breath taking!)

So many dynamics are wrapped into this one story. Readers encounter mother/daughter conflict, sibling conflict, personal reflection and struggle, romance and faith. I devoured this book and could not wait to see how it ended. The story is heartfelt and there are issues that everyone can identify with.

If you are looking for a book to savor - grab this one next. You will not be disappointed!
