Book Review: Where Wildflowers Bloom

How far will she go to follower her dreams?

The Civil War 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 Oregon 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, Faith allows herself to hope that she and Royal will finally wed. But does he truly love her? Or will another man claim her heart?

This is a sweet story that starts out with a bit of sadness as Faith deals with her ailing grandfather and the loss of those she loves.  The story kind of makes you wonder what it is that Faith is truly longing for, does she just need to start over, somewhere fresh, somewhere without memories, is her heart truly longing for Royal, or is it longing to reclaim memories of the past?

I enjoyed this story, it was a very good, endearing read for me and I think you'll enjoy it as well.
