Book Review - Winter in Full Bloom - Anita Higman

Wednesday, September 18, 2013


What a lovely book. Anita Higman writes Christian books which is definitely not my genre of choice. I have to admit this book held my interest. It is about two separate dysfunctional families who overcome the problems created years before. The love story inherent in this book will make you smile, and gladden your heart. The identical twins who find each other after having been separated for most of their lives will at first bring tears to your eyes. But what I loved the most was how the families were healed and once again a family.


About the Book: (from Amazon)

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.

This is heart warming novel! Perfect to read on autumn with a warm cup of cocoa. I am currently looking for a new bedside book and I am so delighted to have stopped by.

I will sure consider Winter in Bloom on my list along with Winter Blessings, a collection of short stories.

Like you, Christian novels aren't my thing. In fact, I avoid them, especially because a couple of years ago I agreed to review a book, completely unaware that it was a Christian romance novel, and ended up reading the entire book with a mortified, frustrated face. I should have taken pictures. Anyway, it's good to know that this book held your interest, despite the fact that you don't typically read Christian books. Definitely a testament to the writer's ability with their craft.
