E-Book Review/GA -3-Where Petals Fall-Melissa Foster-Ends 12/15

Tuesday, November 26, 2013



Melissa Foster really out did herself in this poignant book about the unraveling of a family because of past occurrences. Junie Olson had a best friend when she was a young girl-that friend disappeared and Junie remembers nothing. She ultimately marries her friend's brother and they have a little girl who is perfectly normal in every way. Life is good. THEN-out of seemingly nowhere her little girl starts to regress and no longer speaks. Junie's father dies. Junie herself is beginning to remember or wanting to know what happened to her friend-her husband is not being all that cooperative or understanding. They do separate for a while and Junie and her daughter move in with Junie's Mom which happens to be very near where her husbands father still lives.
It is not until the pictures the little girl draws are finally recognized that the truth will be revealed--it will shock and sadden you. There is a somewhat happy ending--and possibly a continuance of this book. I definitely recommend this book to everyone and give it without reservation a 5 Star.




NEW RELEASE........



On the surface Junie Olson’s life looks idyllic, from her handsome husband and beautiful daughter to her successful business, the bakery she'd always dreamed of opening. But in the past few months her world has slowly unraveled. Her precocious child is withdrawing, showing unexplainable signs of emotional regression, a condition that frays the bonds of Junie’s once impenetrable marriage. When her father dies suddenly of a heart attack, Junie packs up her daughter and goes home to help her mother. Her homecoming stirs up memories of the nightmare she thought she had put behind her, the disappearance of her childhood friend, Ellen. Haunted by recurring memories of what happened on that fateful day, Junie must gather the courage to revisit her past and untangle the secrets surrounding her missing friend, and the trauma that has caused her little girl to climb back into herself. As the pieces come together on the event that shook her small town, and at the risk of losing everyone she loves, Junie will question everything she thought she could rely on and everyone she thought she knew.


WHERE PETALS FALL is a gripping and emotional novel with an undercurrent of suspense, featuring a determined mother whose world slowly comes apart around her. Readers will root for Junie as they follow her transition into an indomitable heroine who must reconcile what she discovers about her husband and family’s tragic past, and find a way to put the pieces of her family back together and carry on.

Masshole Mommy said...

Mysteries are my favorite kinds of book, but I have to say that I love a god suspense novel, so I would definitely read this one!!

(Terry) My Journey With Candida said...

There are days when reading an emotional novel is just what I need, then there are days I want suspense. This has them both.

Jennifer Williams said...

Ashley Gill said...

I personally like adult romance type books, but this book sounds like it would rip my heart out! I will have to read this one!

Tough Cookie Mommy said...

I think this book touches on some important themes. Many families are torn apart by events that happened in the past that have not been resolved and just fester over time.

Pam said...

I like that this story has a happy ending. It sounds very suspenseful too.

mail4rosey said...

I'm rooting for Junie and I haven't even picked up the book yet. :)

I am dying to find out what happened to the little girl. I typically do not read suspense books like this but this has me wanting to read it.

Crystal Green said...

This sounds like a really good book worth reading. I might have a hard time keeping up with everything from the way you described it, but definitely one worth giving a try.

Michelle H said...

Stories about living with our past decisions always tug at my heart strings. And if an author can make them complex and still keep your interest, they must be good.
