By Colleen L. Reece
Wildflower Harvest is 2 stories set in historical America. The first, Mountain Laurel, is about twin girls and the second, Desert Rose, is about their children. Colleen Reece does a great job of making you feel at home with each of these stories. She accurately paints a picture of life during the time America is expanding and moving forward.
Mountain Laurel and Ivy Ann (the twins from the first novel) are two young ladies who live with their parents. Fortunately, their home was left intact during the war and they enjoy the company of young men who call on them while learning how to run a household for when the time comes. The story opens with them at their birthday party. Laurel is tired of being eternally overshadowed by her louder and more boisterous twin. It would seem that Ivy Ann even goes out of her way to make sure the boys notice her rather than Laurel. Adam Birchfield is a young doctor who longs to go to Wyoming to be with his older brother and help him settle the frontier. He meets the twins and has mixed emotions about them. On one hand, he really likes Laurel, who is easy to talk to and seems to understand him. Ivy Ann, though, is bright and lively and fun. When he leaves for the frontier, both girls write to him and then Laurel makes a surprise move: She leaves for Wyoming to be with him. Nobody can believe it. Her bold move causes Ivy Ann to reevaluate herself and her life. When the rest of the family decides to head west also, the twins must reconcile their differences and Adam must decide which twin he loves. When danger strikes both twins, it would seem that love finds a happy ending for them all.
In Desert Rose, both girls are happily married and have children of their own. The children have grown up in Wyoming and are proud of their home and country. When Desert Roses cousin Nate convinces her to send a marriage advertisement to a magazine on a dare, she is completely surprised to receive an answer. However, he really sent her ad to a friend of his from New England. Carmichael Blake Jones is a young man who has been teaching at an all- boys school but finds himself at loose ends after the loss of his parents. When he receives Nates letter, he decides to write Desert Rose and see what happens. Through a series of events, he actually ends up purchasing a ranch near hers and meeting her, although she doesnt know who he is because he is using an alias. As the two fall in love, danger lurks and they must work together to battle an evil man that has come to steal cattle and cause pain. Will they work it out? Will love find a way? Readers will enjoy this book as they discover what happens! I really liked it and would love to hear more about Mountain Laurel, Ivy Ann, Desert Rose, and the rest of the family! I received a free copy of this book for my honest review from NetGalley.
