Book InfoAbout 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 ON THIS BOOKI love, love the cover of this book, but I really didn't know what to expect, and now I see that it fits the story perfectly! Lily didn't have a relationship with her mother, a mother that was so bitter she didn't get along with anyone. After going ten years without seeing her, Lily visits her mother and finds out a deep dark family secret that turns Lily's life around. Lily has an identical twin sister, and an address in Melbourne, Australia is all that they know about this lost sister. Lily has to go find her,and this is where we enjoy her journey as she travels to Australia alone, and starts searching. While setting on a bench, an Ausie appears and Lily is surprised that he just might be the one who can help her find her twin. And I don't like giving anything away, so you need to read the book to find out what happens.
Anita Higman does it again, she writes a wonderful, interesting and entertaining story for us to enjoy. I really enjoyed Australia and the way Ms.Higmand so vividly describes everything about this interesting place where Lily is. All of the characters grow on you as the story unfolds. They are truly well developed as the story unfolds. I sure hope you enjoy this awesome story as much as I did. This is one book that I will be reading again!! I hope there is a second book.......I would love to find out more about Lily and her family!
