Litfuse Review: Winter In Full Bloom by:Anita Higman

 Winter in Full Bloom
About the Book:
Lily Winter's wings are folded so tightly around her daughter that when empty nest arrives, she feels she can no longer fly. But Lily's lonely, widowed life changes in a heartbeat when she goes to visit a woman who is almost a stranger to her-a woman who also happens to be her mother. During their fiery reunion, her mother reveals a dark family secret that she'd been hiding for decades-Lily has an identical twin sister who was put up for adoption when they were just babies.

 Without looking back, Lily-with her fear of flying-boards a jumbo jet and embarks on a quest to find her sister which leads half way around the world to Melbourne, Australia. Befriended by imprudent Ausie, he might prove to be the key to finding her sister. But her journey becomes a circle that leads her back home to attempt a family reunion and to find the one dream she no longer imagined possible-the chance to fall in love again.

My Review: 
 Lily didn't grow up in a home full of love and acceptance. She grew up in a dark, dreary home full of accusations with a very unloving mother. As an empty-nester, she now has the time and willingness to go back over her life and possibly heal her relationship with her mother that at times has kept her bound. 

 She discovers someone that unexpectedly gets her to really thinking about all of this while on a flight out of the country to Australia, where she was headed to get some answers. But while in this new place of wonder she discovers so much more then she could of ever imagined. 

 Follow Lily on a journey of discovering what was once lost is now found. God is working in her life to give her many more blessings then she dreamed possible.
