Where Lilacs Still Bloom Review

It took me awhile to get through this book. It wasn’t a bad story, but gardening and baking are just not my things. I love to cook but to spend so much time trying to find a product that doesn’t exist and make it come to life in a garden seemed like a waste of time for me when there are so many other things out there to use. This book was not about me though, so for her life, if you’re into that sort of thing, then I’m sure it will be extremely enjoyable for the gardening baker.

I have passed the book on to someone who seems to enjoy it as she does those two tasks in her own life. Perhaps I’m the wrong person to give this review but with so many other things going on in this woman’s life, I felt even though it was a passion, there were other places she could have placed her attention.

This book was a gift and in exchange, I have agreed to give my honest opinion but if I were to browse a book store, I wouldn’t have picked this to begin with. For that reason, for the person who does search this book because it is what they enjoy, I am giving it 4 stars. The background stories were good; I enjoyed that more than I did the main story line. However, the author’s passions and my own do not parallel.

I received this book free in exchange of my honest review from Waterbrook/Multnomah Publishing Group.

About Me

My photo
Anthem, Arizona, United States
I'm a caregiver to my husband who is permanently disabled. Life can be a bit challenging when it's not really about me at all. I've got two boys, 18 and 3 and they're both an added handful. I spend my spare time trying to keep from being bored and try to make it about me, life and socializing with others about how they spend their time. Hence, the birth of this blog!
