Wildflowers From Winter by Katie Ganshert

I'm loving this opportunity to blog for books. It is encouraging me to take some time and do one of my most favorite things to do- read! I'd encourage you to check it out if you'd like some free books!

"Wildflowers from Winter" is a fiction book about a young woman, Bethany Quinn, who left rural Iowa to "find herself" in the city of Chicago. Tragedy in her hometown strikes and she finds herself back in Iowa, facing the life she tried to escape. She makes a decision that she will not stay long but many circumstances lead her to being there in Iowa longer than planned. Throughout the book, the author reveals more and more about Bethany's past and how she must make peace with it.

I found myself not wanting to put this book down. It was interesting to follow the character development of Bethany, and understand more of her story. Her past is slowly revealed, which keeps you interested as a reader. I think I also liked the Iowa farm girl part of things, as I can relate. Sometimes Christian romance fiction can get a little cheesy but I didn't feel like this book was too overboard in this area. Overall, it was a good book.
More info about the book and author found at her website.

*I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review.If you would take a moment and rate my review below, that would be incredibly helpful. Thanks!
