Wildflowers from Winter by Katie Ganshert - Review
I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book.
Bethany grew up in small town of Peaks, but has left for good. She has no desire to return, or does she? Unexpected circumstances bring her back. The longer she stays, the harder she finds it is to get away. She is torn by her choices. Bethany has no relationship with God, although she grew up in church. Her used-to-be best friend is suffering a tragedy, and her grandfather passes away leaving her his farm (with a catch of course). Bethany thought she had her life all figured out until now. She has no idea where to turn, what to make of God, or how to fix her life. Does the Peaks still hold something for her? Can she find God again?
Katie does a great job in this book. As you read the story, and get to know Bethany, Robin, and Evan you will feel like you are part of their story. She also has a great example of how at times people you think are called of God, act like they are God, but completely drive people away from God. You just have to read it to get the picture, but it is very true to real life. I have personally had a little experience with some people like such. I would certainly recommend this book.
*I received this book from Waterbrook Multnomah as part of their Blogging for Books program. I am in no way required to give a positive review.*
