    This review was written for Winter in Full Bloom - eBook.
    Anita Higman has penned an amazingly beautiful, heartrending contemporary story of healing and redemption, as one woman's journey to find her twin sister in Melbourne, Australia, leads to more than she could have ever envisioned. Ms. Higman's use of descriptive imagery and my love for Australian settings was a match made in Heaven! With very real characters, situations, and raw emotions -- this novel gets two thumbs up from me!

    Lily Winter, a recent widow and new empty nester, finds herself on an unexpected journey to Australia seeking the twin sister she didn't know she had. Feelings of rejection by her "odious" mother and straying late husband are disrupted by a chance encounter with a fellow Texan who has fled to Melbourne. Sparks ignite as Marcus Averill and Lily become better acquainted, and their lives soon intertwine as do their similar family problems.

    Can Lily and Camille bond as adult siblings? Will they ever be able to relate well to their mother and forgive the hurts of the past? And how will Marcus fit into Lily's family drama? He also needs to receive forgiveness and restore relations with his parents as well as forgive himself. The multiple threads and layers of this novel and the author's skillful characterization and word-weaving make for a satisfying read. The characters grow so dear you don't want to say good-bye but hope for a sequel to learn what happens with Camille.

    I will admit that I was a little nervous to begin reading Winter in Full Bloom because I knew that the main character was a widow, entering a new stage of life. Lily's only daughter has gone off to college and she is feeling a little lonely with her "empty nest". I was afraid that I would be very sad about Lily's husband's death and her loneliness. However, I discovered that the book really is not about those feelings in that way. It is so very good and packed with so much!

    When the book begins, Lily has been a widow for a year and her daughter is in college. Lily attempts to reconcile with her very strange and angry mother. During this reconciliation attempt, Lily discovers some information that instantly changes her life. She hops a plane for Australia.

    In this story, Lily must overcome some big fears and face the doubts about herself that she carries around. Her time in Australia uncovers even more about her family that she did not know and opens up many new questions and possibilities for her life. It also introduces a possible love interest into Lily's life. But, this man has family problems and issues of his own. I loved watching the relationship develop between the hero and heroine of the book. Watching them attempt to overcome their pasts while trying to establish a relationship was heartwarming. The side characters in the story were also very well-developed and had problems to overcome as well. There were so many interesting turns that this book took, and each one gave me an even greater insight into the minds of these characters. I truly enjoyed this lovely story of redemption.

    I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review, which I have given. All opinions expressed are my own.
