This is a contemporary family drama set in a small town. The characters are amazing. They are strong will, flawed, fearful, angry, loving and each is very distinct. They are further developed by the great narrative. Secrets drive the storyline as the characters deal with the consequences of secrets from years ago. This is an emotional drama as each character tries to overcome their internal battles, the actions of other and their own unsavoury tenderness. There is danger and suspense leading up to massive changes that pull the family apart. As each member struggles to adapt to the changes you can not help but feel their sense of loss and celebrate their achievements. To me this story left me with conflicting emotions as I tried to digest the multitude of changes that occurred and the impact they had. It is an extremely well written book by a talented author.
I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
Where the Wildflowers Grow is written as a very dark cup of tea. Pretty much no one in this novel is happy; they start out in bad places, and they get into darker places. Dr. Ryan Cassidy has a dark secret he's keeping from his family, while his wife Rose struggles with the banality of being a housewife. In the meantime their daughter Lily discovers young love, while her younger brother Dalton frets about Lily's boyfriend. Things explode after Rose encounters a strange woman at the local book-club, and Ryan decides to make sure his secret never gets out.
This story is too dark for me, in terms of tea. Each protagonist does terrible things, which causes apathy for the reader, and the culture represented is not a culture I want to know or approve. With that said, the pace is steady, and the narrative does make you keep reading. This novel will make other readers happy.
I was provided with a complimentary copy of this book, through Reading Deals, so I could give an honest review.
