Wildflowers from Winter - Katie Ganshert

Summary from GoodReads: A young architect at a prestigious Chicago firm, Bethany Quinn has built the life she dreamed of during her teen years in a trailer park. An unexpected interruption from her estranged mother reveals that tragedy has struck in her hometown and a reluctant Bethany is called back to rural Iowa.

Determined to pay her respects to her past while avoiding any emotional entanglements, she vows not to stay long. But the unexpected inheritance of five hundred acres of farmland and a startling turn of events in Chicago forces Bethany to come up with a new plan.

Handsome farmhand Evan Price has taken care of the Quinn farm for years. When Bethany is left the land, Evan must fight her decisions to realize his dreams. But even as he disagrees with Bethany’s vision, Evan feels drawn to her and the pain she keeps so carefully locked away.

For Bethany, making peace with her past and the God of her childhood doesn’t seem like the path to freedom. Is letting go the only way to new life, love and a peace that she’s not even sure exists?
Bethany Quinn had it all; an job as an architect, a steady boyfriend who is a lawyer and a new life in Chicago.  Then rather quickly, her life changes and so goes back to her hometown in Iowa, a place that she worked so hard to forget.  She promises herself that she would only stay until things are resolved when she realizes that she has nothing to go back to Chicago for.  What will Bethany chose to do?  Will she stay in Iowa?  Can she live in a town with so many bad memories and move forward?  Find out the answers to these questions by reading Wildflowers from Winter by Katie Ganshert.
