"Motherhood, in all its magical and messy incarnations, is at the heart of The Winters In Bloom
, a story that skates gracefully amid wonder, terror and redemption. Indeed, Tucker's novel is impossible to categorize, bending the confines of the psychological thriller with an eloquent literary narrative of tangled family ties."-- BookPage
“Few contemporary novelists come close to understanding families in trouble with the insight and compassion of Lisa Tucker.” —Pat Conroy, New York Times
bestselling author of South of Broad
and Beach Music
“In The Winters in Bloom
the ties that bind are expertly knotted. With many twists, secrets, and unexpected turns, Lisa Tucker proves that sometimes these ties are wholly unbreakable. They can survive time, loss, longing—even our greatest fears—and they endure because love endures.” —Julianna Baggott, author of Girl Talk
“Lisa Tucker weaves together multiple perspectives to give us a novel rife with human entanglements of every variety . . . Most moving is the story of Kyra and David as they face the struggles every parent will recognize: how to take care of someone in a world as dangerous as it is beautiful; how to choose—daily, deliberately—joy over fear.” —Marisa de los Santos, New York Times
bestselling author of Belong to Me
“Brilliant, tender, and riveting. Reading The Winters in Bloom
is like falling into some beguiling dream, one you don’t want to wake from. Lisa Tucker has not described a world; she has created one unlike any you’ve never seen. She has breathed life into her characters, and they will breathe life into you.” —John Dufresne, author of Requiem, Mass.
“The author cleverly imparts life lessons through the tale of one family.” —RT Book Reviews
"Fast-paced page-turner." —Library Journal
