Winter in Full BloomLily 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
Winter in Full Bloom is a wonderful read, despite that it's about winter!  It is just getting too cool too fast this year....which of course has nothing to do with the book, but a lot to do with my upcoming bad attitude about the weather.  Needless to say, my attitude did not alter my thoughts on this book!

The story wraps itself around family, loving and caring family as well as dysfunctional family...which really is refreshing, the world is not perfect and I like to see a little real life in a book.  There is so much romance, faith and adventure in this book that it will keep you turning pages and just may take over your life while your reading it....it may cause you to lose a few hours of sleep because you just have to finish it!

The characters really are quite endearing and you will find them wrapping themselves around your heart, a truly wonderful book, get one for yourself and another for a stocking stuffer!

*I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for review from Litfuse Publicity.
