My review:

This book was amazing. It took me on a wild ride with emotional highs and lows. The story could have been dark had the author not inserted a lot of healing into the story. She did a great job of showing that people need each other and families need communication and closeness. When those relationships rupture due to an inability to forgive, it hurts everyone. The dialog was witty and at times downright precious. The use of Aussie slang made it even more fun. I absolutely adored Marcus. He was a great hero and swoon-worthy because of his endearing qualities.

The story kept me reading because the different underlying conflicts continued to unfold and progress at a good pace. The characters were complex and three-dimensional. The author included a lot of symbolism, like in one instance where bitterness and hatred caused crippling arthritis to the point of making one character wheelchair bound. There were many times the author described a facial expression that told me there was more going on that would be revealed later.

I ended up smiling at the end. Ah, this was such a beautiful and healing story that showed how love always encourages people to deal with their pain/ Love refuses to hold others back from what needs to happen to make their hearts whole again. Well-written and deeply, emotional, I loved everything about this book.

Winter in Full Bloom was published by River North and released in July 2013.
