Sometimes it’s fun to escape the issues that surround us and just disappear into a good book.
Love Blooms in Winter is one of those books that takes you back to 1892 in North Dakota and makes you feel like your part of the story.
I really enjoyed following Mae Wilkey’s story as she patiently waits for the man she has been ‘dating’ for over 6 years to make a commitment, but she also patiently waits on an elderly women who seems to have no family to help take care of her.
But than Mae sees a ray of hope. A ‘kin’ name and address of someone who may be able to come help her. She prayed for someone to come care for this woman, but had no idea he would change her life too.
Love Blooms in Winter will keep you turning the pages.
Enjoy the first chapter.
