A couple of days ago, I was standing in front of my bookshelf trying to decide what to read next. I reached for Kristin Hannah's new book, merely to check it out. I know this sounds a bit silly, but for a split second this feeling came over me and I knew this was the book I was to read right now.
I couldn't put it down until I finished it yesterday afternoon. Tears poured down my face in the final pages. I have read every one of Hannah's books and enjoyed them. Winter Garden is, without a doubt, my favorite. What a beautifully crafted story that takes the reader on a journey with unexpected twists and turns and deep emotion. I have always believed the mother/daughter connection has a powerful impact on a woman's life. Oh, here it is. I loved this book. On a personal note: when you read Winter Garden, my sweet daughter- and I know you will- know, too, that I love you more than words can say.
