Winter in Full Bloom by Anita Higman

About 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 Take:  First off what a beautiful Cover.  Everytime I looked at the cover it made me think that the book was set in the Orient for some reason.  The story told in these pages was a very good one.  I loved the book from start to finish.  This book tells the story of family with all its warts and bumps.  It also tells the story of a second chance at love.  I am a sucker for second chances and this book is the ultimate in that regard.  My daughter has a friend who is currently in Australia on a missions trip so it was fun reading a book set there.  I would highly recommend this book.

I received a review copy of this book from Litfuse in exchange for my honest opinion.
