Winter in Full Bloom - Anita Higman

Thursday, August 29, 2013


















About Winter in Full Bloom: Lily Winter's wings are folded so tightly around her daughter that when empty nest arrives, she feels she can no longer fly. But Lily's lonely, widowed life changes in a heartbeat when she goes to visit a woman who is almost a stranger to her---a woman who also happens to be her mother. During their fiery reunion, her mother reveals a dark family secret that she'd been hiding for decades---Lily has an identical twin sister who was put up for adoption when they were just babies.

Without looking back, Lily---with her fear of flying---boards a jumbo jet and embarks on a quest to find her sister which leads half way around the world to Melbourne, Australia. Befriended by imprudent Ausie, he might prove to be the key to finding her sister. But her journey becomes a circle that leads her back home to attempt a family reunion and to find the one dream she no longer imagined possible-the chance to fall in love again.

    My Thoughts:

    Adoption, secrets, Australia, empty-nest, new love, Anita Higman brings all of this to life in her latest book Winter in Full Bloom. You will truly fall in love with Lily, her daughter Julie, her twin sister Camille, and Marcus. These characters and story will stick with you long after you close the last page.

    After Lily Winter's mother tells her about a letter she received from her twin sister who she put up for adoption, Lily embarks on a trip to Australia to find Camille. Lily doesn't like to fly, and while sitting on the tarmac she asks God for back up, across the aisle is a little girl who realizes Lily is scared to death to fly, and begins to talk to her. Jenny is super cute, and is able to help Lily relax.

    Once Lily arrives in Australia, she is on the hunt to find her twin sister. With no luck at the church that is close to her hotel, she walks around the botanical garden that is close to her hotel. When she sits on a park bench and Marcus, who looks like a bum, sits down next to her, she is curious, but not alarmed. Something about being away from home, and being hurt by her mother, Lily opens up to him, and he not only becomes her tour guide, he is going to help her find her sister.

    I am not going to say any more, because I do not want to ruin the story.
    This is a beautiful story of love, forgiveness, and healing. I loved this story from beginning to end. I hope this is just the beginning and we will see more of these endearing characters.

    I highly recommend!

    Book Blurb:

    At only 27, James Aitcheson has received international praise for his Conquest series, set in one of the most famous years in history: 1066, the Battle of Hastings.

    Rarely represented in historical fiction, what happened after the battle is less well known. Threats to Norman victory loomed, as English rebels plotted for the throne. In this series, Tancred, a handsome young Norman knight, gets caught up in secret dealings between a powerful Norman magnate and a shadow from the past, uncovering a dangerous plot that could change the fate of the famous battle—and determine the future rulers of England.

    My Thoughts:

    This book was definitely out of my alley of reading. I really enjoy reading new authors and this was not only new and different it was a great read.

    I have not seen Game of Thrones, I have heard about it, and this book is definitely in the same boat with knights, ladies, and a secret plot.
