Wildflower Hope by Grace Greene

Series: The Wildflower House #2
Print and e-book, 316 pages
Published September 24th 2019 by Lake Union Publishing

In the second novel in the Wildflower House series, the author of The Memory of Butterflies reminds us that to achieve our dreams, we must first open our hearts.

Kara Hart suffered overwhelming heartache when she lost her mother and husband, and her father’s sudden death might be the blow that breaks her—unless she turns her grief into purpose. She’ll finish renovating his Victorian mansion in rural Virginia, but with her own twist. She’ll turn the old house into a creative retreat for artists and writers.

Kara has never tackled a project this big alone, and she’s not ready to open her heart to others for help. But the locals open their hearts to her—including two who have the potential to be more than friends. She tells herself she doesn’t need romance or distractions, but maybe that’s exactly what she needs. When her former best friend reenters Kara’s life, it could be the distraction that finally destroys her—or heals her.

The tragedies in Kara’s life have damaged her self-confidence, but she presses forward, gradually lowering her protective walls and allowing others in little by little. Will bringing Wildflower House back to life and freeing her own creative spirit also allow her to open her heart to hope and happiness—and maybe even love?

My thoughts about Wildflower Hope ~~

(I love to note the first lines of the books I'm reading. First lines can really grab a reader's attention and I love seeing where the author takes the reader after their first line.)

First line—"My father, Henry Lange, died in June, two months after he and I moved to Wildflower House."

I absolutely loved Wildflower Heart and hoped I would get another chance to visit Kara, her family and friends, and Wildflower House again. Wildflower Hope took me right back there to that beautiful place. 

Kara's life hasn't been easy but she feels a sense of peace at Wildflower House. She has plenty of demons that she has to work through but she feels that this could be the place that might be able to heal her. I loved the many words of wisdom and sage advice that were revealed to the reader as Kara goes through the process. 

Wildflower Hope is a wonderful story of hope, forgiveness, growth, love, and moving forward. I'm excited to visit again with Kara and everyone else at Wildflower House, whenever I can.

'What the brain knows and what the heart hopes for are often different things.'
