Book Blurb:
The War Between the States stole a father and brother from Faith Lindberg-- as well as Royal Baxter, the man she wanted to marry. With only her grandfather left, she dreams of leaving Noble Springs, Missouri, and traveling west to the Oregon Territory to start a new life, away from the memories that haunt her. But first she must convince her grandfather to sell the family's mercantile and leave a town their family has called home for generations.

When Royal Baxter suddenly returns to town, Faith allows herself to hope that her dreams might come true. Does he truly love her? Or could another man claim her heart? Will she find that following her dreams may not mean leaving home after all?

The characters in Where Wildflowers Bloom jump off the page and into the reader's heart. Author Ann Shorey infuses her characters with the virtues and quirks that bring them fully alive as they search for contentment and love.

My Thoughts: Faith's grandfather has asked her to take over the mercantile so he can write his memoir for the future generation. He goes to deliver dishes to a customer and falls. Faith will need help to get him home and she enlists help from a man who has just come into town and is working at the livery, Curt Saxon. He is happy to help her. His sister was a nurse during the Civil War and Faith approaches her about watching her grandfather during the day while she works at the mercantile. She refuses as she feels her volunteering as a nurse was not what she should've been doing. Faith talks to her grandfather about moving to Oregon which he does not want to do.
I was pleasantly surprised by this book.
