Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Love, longing, and faith in midlife are the triple themes braided together in Wildflowers, the sweet eighth installment of the Glenbrooke Series by popular Christian novelist Robin Gunn. As Genevieve Ahrens busies herself making a success of the Wildflower Café, she's aware that the rest of her life is in trouble. After 26 years of marriage, "all the doors to her heart were shut, and all the shades were pulled down tight," and she's withdrawn from her faith. Genevieve's husband Steven is a commercial airline captain who is away for long stretches of time, leaving her bitter and resentful. When fire guts the Wildflower Café, Genevieve can no longer distract herself from the frozen state of her soul and her heart. In the end, she finds that it is her ability to forgive the past through a renewed faith that thaws her unhappiness. Although occasionally the descriptions become a little heavy-handed, Gunn's fans will find that her award-winning ability to tell a good story is in full evidence here. --Cindy Crosby --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Paperback
Genevieve Ahrens had been married to Steven many years. Their oldest daughter had already left the nest and only two remained. With Steven being an airline captain and gone often, she kept busy with her newly-acquired café. Gena had wonderful plans for the Wildflower Café. The famous author of the "All The Best" line of books even stopped by. He planned to return in a few months to see if the changes would be good enough for him to feature the café in his next book! Gena's assistant, Leah, was a big help and a close friend.
When a major crisis occurred at the café, once again Steven was not there for Gena. Their marriage problems were getting worse and their future together looked bleak. But friends slowly showed her how to open her heart to God. Gena must learn that sometimes God does not answer prayers for very good reasons.
***** An excellent example of writing! This is the type of novel that should be read slowly and savored. I enjoyed every page! Each time I stopped reading it was with a glow in my heart. Wonderful! I hope to see more from this author soon. *****

The book, Wildflowers, doesn't focus mainly on teens, as many books nowadays do. Being a teen myself this is okay, but for the adult readers, it's not. I was very surprised to find out that Genevieve wasn't a teen, nor was she 20 or 30. This was very refreshing! I commend Robin J. Gunn! This book actually illustrated things that can really happen, as opposed to, "Oh yeah, my boyfriend broke up with me today.My dog bit me." This book is highy reccomended!

Robin Jones Gunn has done it again! She has made me happy.
Her books are the best, everytime I read a new one by her I think, her books cannot get any better! Wildflowers, her latest book in the Glenbrooke series defies this and only shows her great writing style.
The main character, Gena goes through many situations that make her start questioning what has happened to her faith in God. This book is like a coming of age book (although Gena is not a teen or young adult) she learns some important truths prior to her new understanding of what it is to really know someone is by and will never leave you. Through the her renewed relationship with God, she comes to overcome obstacles that were hindering her relationships from going further.
I really liked the book because it was by Robin Jones Gunn! Also, the book is great because no matter what is going on, I can feel the presence of God in the midst of all the turmoil in Gena's life. The book is a reminder to all that it is never too late to renew your relationship with God, or if you don't have a relationship with hime yet, you can start right away!

Format: Paperback
Ms. Gunn tackles everyday woes and worries with a kind and sometimes funny approach. In today's world where divorce seems to be the only answer, Ms. Gunn provides a different way. She portrays the fears and frustrations that can build between a husband and wife over the years until divorce seems the way out to relieve the pain. The author treats this subject with understanding and spiritual wisdom. It's so hard sometimes to give your life to God and let the pain go. Though this is fiction, the situation is believable and the results leave the reader with a good feeling. I have re-read it twice and still enjoy the story.

I've loved all of Robin's Glenbrooke series, but this is now my favorite. It's a great gift of hope to anyone who has felt the joy seep away over her married years. "Wildflowers" will awaken your heart.

Wildflowers is the 8th and final book in the Glenbrooke series. I am not sure if it is my favorite because I read all prior 7 books in the series, so felt like I already knew many of the characters, or because it is one of the few romances I have read where the two main characters are already married, but due to some external difficulties and challenges, both began to wonder "Where did the excitement and beauty of our first days together go?" It also helped that there is no gratuitous sex, violence or occult themes which are found in so many of the popular romance novels. Yet it is obvious that God created men and women to have intimacy and celebration and good communication as part of a healthy marriage.
Since I have been married over 30 years, I have seen some of those challenges which this couple faced. Fortunately, neither my wife or I have had to see either of our businesses burn to the ground or wonder where the money would come from to rebuild, but I have been laid off from a job more than once, and similarly to what this couple saw, we have seen God's provision, both directly, and through gifts from thoughtful Christian friends, as well as being hired to new jobs after sending out many resumes, networking etc. I loved how they wrote Bible verses on the floor of the restaurant before tiling and painting it, and looking over someone's shoulders as some of those encouraging verses were found. When I finished the book, I only had two disappointments, 1) That the series was over, and 2) That my wife and I did not have enough money to go and buy 20 copies of this series so we could share copies with our friends.
