“I’ve loved falling in love with you, every morning, every hour. Every day you become more of my life and I can’t wait for our life together to begin.”

A historical fiction set in Munich, Germany in the early 1930’s before the outbreak of War World II. Eli Levin and Rebecca Baum fall passionately in love and while their differences should have separated them, they instead forged a passionate bond that would change their lives forever.


"With painstaking attention paid to creating the work of fiction around historical reality…Dates and events were historically accurate, using real events as the framework for the story. It was a love story, heart wrenching at times, full of all of the angst, fear and uncertainty of the time… Rebecca and Eli were the symbols of the good that still existed during that horrible time in history. They were very well-developed and very accurate for the time period of the novel….What I liked most about the book was the historical accuracy. It wasn't a fluffy take on the time period, but full of the anger, fear and unrest that existed.
" - Kim @Goodreads


"Ami has enormous talent and she delivers a love story that is not only profound, but engaging. I couldn't put the book down and I am a very busy person with almost no time to read...I almost wished I had gotten the audio version." -Jeffrey Andrews CEO


"Overall, I enjoyed this book quite a bit. It is refreshing for a love story to have real world problems instead of some random vampire-themed issues." -Erin @Goodreads

"it was truly a gift. A gift of a great love story…..Full of romance and love. The trials and tribulations of this couple is truly a remarkable story. It is well written and the description of places and things make the story truly real." -Read for Your Future

"Ami Blackwelder recounts the issues of this couple in a poignant, thought-provoking manner. The story has a slow pace which allows the reader to absorb the atmosphere of the lives (including the religious traditions) of the main characters, Eli and Rebecca. I would recommend this book to those interested in historical romance (no explicit scenes) from this era." -Imogen Rose (Author of Portal Chronicles)

    A must read for all lovers of historical novels.

    The Day the Flowers died was a heartbreaking story of Rebecca and Eli's struggle to remain together despite their families disapproval and the uprising of Adolf Hitler and the Nazi Party.The Day the Flowers Died was a pleasure to read because I learned many things about what it was like to live in 1930's Germany.Author Ami Blackwelder did an excellent job writing this story and raising awareness of how prejudice and hate can affect people.I have not read such a great and well written historical novel in a very long time.

    Love & loss,...

    The Day the Flowers Died is a historical romance set in the years between WWI and WWII, telling the love story of Rebecca and Eli, a Catholic woman and a Jewish man. The story line itself was a good one, with painstaking attention paid to creating the work of fiction around historical reality. Dates and events were historically accurate, using real events as the framework for the story. That blend of truth and fiction definately lent to the historical feel of the novel and allows the reader to feel present in the time of the story. It was definately a love story, heart wrenching at times, and the story was full of all of the angst, fear and uncertainty of the time and allowed it to become more than words on the page. That being said, the extreme amount of descriptive passages sometimes became unwieldy. There were times that I became so bogged down in the descriptions of mundane things that I lost track of the story being told at the moment, causing me have to reread passages while skipping the descriptions just to regain the gist. At times it felt like the humanity and emotion of the story was stilted by the abundance of minute details. I think that really took away from what was a truly beautiful and touching love story.

    Despite that, I enjoyed the characters within the story. Rebecca and Eli were the symbols of the good that still existed during that horrible time in history. Their friends and family were indicative of the varying viewpoints that tore families and friends apart. They were very well-developed and very accurate for the time period of the novel.

    I think that what I liked most about the book was the historical accuracy I mentioned at the beginning of this review. It wasn't a fluffy take on the time period, but full of the anger, fear and unrest that existed. The ending of the book was in keeping with the historical accuracy of the rest of the novel, although I can't expand upon that without giving a spoiler, but it was the perfect conclusion to the novel!
