Plot: I really enjoyed the plot. It was real and simple, but it was intriguing and entertaining at the same time. There wasn't too much happening, but enough to stay engaged with the story.
Characters: I really enjoyed the character development in this story. It really was essential to the story. Watching the characters grow and change as the story develops and learning things about the characters and how they fit together was in itself romantic and beautiful.
Themes: The main theme in this book would be moving forward. Robin is stuck between who she was with her husband and the dreams they shared and moving ahead with her life and taking the next steps.
Emotion: The emotion was great at times and only okay at others. It was easy to identify with the characters, but not always in a deep intimate way.
Overall: I really enjoyed this book and the characters. As I said, it was just a simple story, but it was very well written and entertaining.
---I received this book for free from the publisher for this review.---
This is the second book that I think is in a series but what series I do not know. I love this book as much as the first one. It more about Cafe and Cafe Owner. Sorry I can not remember her name or her son at the moment. It been a while since I read it. Though it was this year and only a couple of months ago. I will let you decide for yourself if you download the e-book or buy the paperback.
Katie Ganshert has done it again! Wishing on Willows picks up where Wildflowers from Winter leaves off and touches on grief, recovery, getting "over" oneself, and moving on. This is a heart-wrenching and heart-warming novel! Katie's writing is smooth and creative, very descriptive and engaging. Her characters are real and so are the feelings she provokes in her readers. You don't want to miss out on these two books!
Wow, just wow. Katie Ganshert has done an excellent job with Wishing on Willows. The writing is excellent, and pulls you into the story with little effort on your part.
It is a heartwarming story of grief and second chances at love. Sometimes a dry, empty desert becomes our familiar place and no matter how good the alternative is, making a change is scary. Taking a chance on love, for a second time, can be even scarier, but Ms. Ganshert has done an excellent job of showing us that it can work.
