Just couldn't stop sobbing as I finished the novel.
I'm not a typical fan of romance, and not specially the one which ends with tails of sadness, but this time, the case was totally different with Wildflowers.
The story is exceptionally heart touching and even one with a stone heart will sob by the end of the novel, that's guaranteed.
Lately I've been reading lots of Sci- Fi which kept me enrolled and tangled into space and various planets, dealing with fancy aliens and advance technologies.
Meanwhile I almost forgot about the problems and issues going on earth and most likely about humans (laughs! He he!).
Wildflowers is the novel which brought me back on earth and among the humans.
It not only sheds some light on society problems, rather it sheds high power halogen bulbs.
Wildflowers is a story about a boy and a girl called Easter and Susan, but it's not only just another Boy-Girl story, It's a big cat.
The novel shows how difficult and painful it is for a child to grow up without a father and a mother who's a drunk. With the violence of parents, poverty, negligence, insults, illiteracy and all the worst possible things that can every happen to anyone at a younger age, how difficult life can be.
I lived under an impression that such a severe and terrible uprising of children was obsolete from the world but this novel shocked me to the guts.
How fiercely violent can a mother act upon her child?
Benefield wrote the novel beautifully and undoubtedly brought tears to my eyes.
She clearly highlighted and hit the right spot to the readers heart with all of her writing skills and amazing overall thinking.Read more ›
It is also a story of how young love can overcome these issues and how sometimes it's better to look beneath the surface and see what is truly there.
This story deals with some strong issues, so it is not for the faint of heart. The things Aster tells of his life with his mother are horrors that no child should ever have to endure. The things that he does to protect those he loves are misunderstood by the town people but show exactly the caliber of person that he will grow to be. The mother of young Susan who "thinks" she is doing the best for her daughter by making it impossible for them to be together, ends up with.... Well I can't tell you that because it would ruin the story.
I think that I can say that this is a great read and I recommend it to anyone who likes true to life dramas. A fabulous 5 star book!

*Beautiful, delightful, though-provoking, and eerily honest fabulous book!*
For those who are into YA Romance, you'll probably like this book. It is one of the better romance books I've read through.
Personally, I don't really read romance of any kind. Sure, if it's a book about something else that happens to have romantic elements then cool. Straight up romance I tend to steer clear of. (Which totally explains why I agreed to review three romance novels in a row :s).
By like the fifth time I have to read the sentence: He/she gazed (adjective) into his/her (adjective) eyes; I start screaming, "Just say they're staring at each other!" My patience for it is minimal and it's not like I don't know that making oogly eyes at each other is a precursor for fornication. I find myself wanting the characters to just get it on so I don't have read about them drooling over one another anymore.
Anyhow, that's enough on that rant for a bit. As you can see, these type of books bring out my smarmy pants side. Which is why it was important for me to start off by saying Wildflowers really is an alright read.
A little bit of bullet pointing here:
If you're looking for something totally original, then you'll be disappointed.
The characters in this book are very stereotypical archetypes. The lovers are the misunderstood bad boy and the innocent new girl. Not really anything thrilling there. However, they are likable, and Benefield does a good job of making the reader want to know how what happened to them went down.
Probably two chapters in I had most of the book figured out.Read more ›
