WILDFLOWER from WINTER
Paperback, 320 pages
Katie Ganshert is a new author to me, but I really enjoyed the book. This is one story that you can not guess how it will end.
Bethany Quinn is a young architect that works in Chicago and is on her way home (or where she grew up) to Iowa. Her mother, whom she has never got alone with called her home because her grandfather had a heart attack. Her dad had died when she and her brother was young, and her mother had moved them to an old mobile home that she hated. She had spent as much time growing up with her grandfather on her dad' side. But after she moved away ten years ago she just did not want to go back. She even forgot about her best friend Robin who was now married.
When she got to Peaks, Iowa everything looked the same as when she was growing up EXCEPT a young man was living with her grandfather and taking care of the farm. She was really surprised when she met Evan Price and a little jealous because of the way he had taken care of her grandfather.
There is a lot of tragedy in this story, and Bethany is having a hard time believing that God will take care of things in His own time. She had stopped believing when she had been forced to go sit and listen to Pastor Fenton, whom she hated.
Her grandfather passed away and she found out that she was left five hundred acres of farm land but Evan was left the farm house. What was she going to do with a large farm, when she lived in Chicago?
