Wildflowers from Winter is the author's debut novel. I thought the book was well done for a first time author. The story captured me from the beginning and I enjoyed her character development. The setting was easily pictured in my mind. I was a little frustrated with how long it took to tell us what really happened in Bethany's childhood. I understand the build-up but for me was really anti-climatic when it finally came out. Honestly, I was expecting something much worse. I was also a little confused with the change in narrator in certain chapters. Current day was in 3rd person but reflections of her childhood was in 1st person. I think a chapter heading would have been helpful. All in all, I think it was a good, romantic story of friendship and a developing relationship between Bethany and Evan.
I received this book free from Waterbrook Multnomah in exchange for my review.
