Wildflowers from Winter by Katie Ganshert

**A debut novel that surprised me and put Katie Ganshert as a new author on my must-read list!**Wildflowers from Winter book cover
 
Wildflowers from Winter is not a easy, cute read. (I’m not knocking those books, because they are fun. But sometimes you want a real story with characters that are messy, like us.) It’s a heart breaking story of the loss endured by Bethany Quinn and how she separated herself from it (or tries to). She is no longer Bethany who lives in the trailer park and tried to commit suicide. She is an up-and-coming architect in Chicago. However, the story doesn’t stay there. She drawn back to her small hometown and the slow, painful process of healing begins. 
 
Wildflowers burst from the ground…creating a picture more pleasing than anything her hands could design. She didn’t understand how it was possible… The abundance of snow had produced an abundance of wildflowers…. Somehow, those cold, lifeless winter months had prepared the land for something breathtaking. Something beautiful. Something brimming with life.
 
I’m so glad that I got to know the characters in Wildflowers from Winter. They are real with both strengths and weakness. The main characters are Bethany -a wounded, scared child in woman’ body who has built a wall to protect her heart- and Evan -the man who has helped Bethany’s grandpa on the farm for 4 years and now loves this land. 
 
This is most definitely a book I would recommend. I am looking forward to the next book by Katie Ganshert.
