Wishing on Willows is a great follow up story to Wildflowers from Winter. Now, I fully believe that this book can be read even if the first hasn't been. The author sets the stage by letting the reader know what has happened in Robin's life to bring her to this point. HOWEVER...this story will mean so much more to you if you read Wildflowers from Winter first, because Robin's back story is an integral part of that book.
Both books are wonderful and I found myself not wanting to put either book down. In Wishing on Willows, I will admit that it took me a long, long time to begin to like the hero, Ian McKay. It wasn't until the second half of the story that I began to feel for him and hope that all would work out for these two.
This book deals with deep grief, moving forward, regret...very difficult topics which are handled gracefully by the author. I wish there had been an epilogue...I really, really, wanted an epilogue that would have shown what was happening say one or two years in the future for the two main characters. That would have ended the book perfectly for me. And I also wish there was a book out there (or a novella) that shows what will happen in Amanda's life. But other than those two little details, this was a very enjoyable story.
