“Winter Garden” Book Review

Winter Garden

It’s a snowy day here (Saturday, January 21) and I laid in bed this morning finishing reading Winter Garden by Kristin Hannah. It is lasting into the day with me. First of all, I recommend it and will try to not say too much about it to ruin it for anybody else’s reading.

It’s about sisters, and mother and daughter relationships. It’s about trauma and how you carry it with you. And it’s about resolution and how it happens and whether with the resolution, you have some regrets.

We have had a recent death in our family and knowledge of several people with serious cancer. That has served to remind me about time and its limitations. I found myself throughout this book in wonder at this mother’s courage and determination to stand tall, and at the same time, found myself in tears at the end of the book as resolution happened but much time had been lost.

One of my New Year’s resolutions is to stay in intentional touch with a bunch of people, both family and friends. And to try to not only have the daily chit-chat but also the deeper conversation.

This book spurs that resolution on, plus holding on to persistence and determination as one of the sisters does. What a good read.
