Winter in Full Bloom

About the book:
Embark on a flight with Lily as she faces her secret fear and lands in the precise spot that God intended all along.

Lily's life changes in a heartbeat when a fiery confrontation with her mother uncovers a mystery about her totally dysfunctional family, sending Lily on a panicky flight around the world to get answers. But she gets more than she expected in Melbourne when a serendipitous meeting sparks a friendship with a man who is more than just another brazen Aussie. She discovers he might hold the key to her past. Lily hopes her homecoming will lead to a long-awaited reconciliation with her mother; then again, it might just crush the one dream she no longer imagined possible-the chance to fall in love again.

A novel about faith, family and forgiveness. I enjoyed it, but it's not one I absolutely loved. I do love stories about sisters though. I'm not sure how plausible it was that almost as soon as Lily lands in Melbourne, she meets a man who knows who her sister is.  However, the novel has lovely prose and beautiful descriptions of Australia, a place I have always wanted to visit.

  1. Australia is a setting I haven't encountered much in my reading. Several reviews have said the descriptions of Australia in this book were really good.
