Book Club Friday

This week I'm reviewing a book I got from Blogging from Books. Wildflowers From Winter.

Find on Amazon
{The Back Cover Says}
A young architect at a prestigious Chicago firm, Bethany Quinn has built the life she dreamed of during her trailer-park teen years. An expected call 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 to her past while avoiding any emotional entanglements, she vows not to stay long. The unexpected inheritance of five hundred acres 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. When Bethany is left the land, Evan must fight her decisions to realize his own 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 that she's not even sure exists?

{Betty Says}
This book has been sitting on my nightstand waiting for me to read it. Recently, I finally picked it up and let me say, I really enjoyed it! I enjoyed learning about Bethany, her past, what her struggles were. I wanted to turn the page and she how relationships would grow and where the story was going to go. I couldn't put the book down once I started reading. The book was fabulous and the best part? The author is continuing the story in a second book...and you can bet your bottom dollar I'm going to read it!

Disclaimer: I was provided a copy of this book for free in return for my review of the novel. All thoughts provided in the review are my own.
