Spring is such a great time for rebirth and growth. I love to watch my hydrangeas, lavender, and roses bloom. I thought about Annie's love the same way. She was a different person at the beginning of the book and she grew to be a woman at the end. My favorite scene was the birthday wish scene. I also really liked the recipes from the Sweet Seasons Bakery Cafe that the author included at the end.
As a bright season brings a fresh start to Willow Ridge, Annie Mae Knepp feels she can never make peace with the past. Her disgraced ex-bishop father is furious she has taken her five siblings to live with her. She's never been truly at home in her faith. . .or believing in herself. And Annie Mae fears no man will want to take on the responsibilities she's gladly shouldered. True, her quiet neighbor Adam Wagler has been steadfast and unshakeable helping her through her trials, but he surely couldn't think of someone so lost as more than a friend. Believing she is unworthy because of her doubts, Annie Mae will find in a moment of surprising revelation that God can work impossible miracles--and that love makes all things new.
