AUTHOR: Ann Shorey
The War Between the States 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 to town, Faith allows herself to hope that her dreams might come true. Does he truly love her? Or could another man claim her heart? Will she find that following her dreams may not mean leaving home after all?
The characters in "Where Wildflowers Bloom" jump off the page and into the reader's heart. Author Ann Shorey infuses her characters with the virtues and quirks that bring them fully alive as they search for contentment and love.
Faith is a caring, responsible young woman who loves her grandfather and longs for a fresh start. But she isn’t perfect – she tends to let her own desires overrun her good sense at times. Her imperfections make her even more likeable and realistic.
Curt Saxon has his own secret weakness, and his struggles tugged at my heart. I thoroughly enjoyed Where Wildflowers Bloom, especially since I’d previously read book three in this series. It was fun to get reacquainted with these characters. I highly recommend this book (and the series) and give it five stars.
