Wildflowers from Winter
By Kate Ganshert
Bethany has run from her small-town in Iowa to Chicago to start a better life. But, can nice cars, designer clothes, and a ritzy job really make her happy? And what will happen when dire circumstances call her back to her hometown? Her grandfather is in poor health and her best friend of years past is in crisis. Bethany has some tough decisions to make. Can she get past her selfish desires and put others first? And will she let God break through the anti-religious barricade she has built for herself?
This debut novel by Kate Ganshert is an excellent read from a budding author. The story is well-written with a realistic and heart-breaking storyline. The characters are well-developed. I am so glad to see the author showing that even with God, life is not always perfect; but He is always dependable. The trials of the characters are written so expressively that I found myself hurting for them. You’ll probably want a few Kleenex nearby! I give this book an A – good read.
I received a free advance copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.
