steve and geneviere have a trusting marriage, he's an airplane pilot and is often jetting off to attend conventions, she runs a local cafe their 2 girls keep them busy. things start to wear on her as she's saddled with the girls all the time and the cafe, the inheritance money he invested badly that her store could've really used. so she starts making some changes in the cafe after spending a dinner at a resort 40 miles away. it has a tree growing in the middle near the fireplace that make Genevieree hoping that if she used that n her cafe to attract more to come daily and things go wrong to the point there is a major disaster. things happen that bring them back to the church and answers to many questions that have piled up over the months. the bible and verses she discussed with her lady friends at their meetings and that helped not only her marriage but her daily life. really like how the local people in town help and their stories are brought up to date from previous books.

Like the other books in the Glenbrooke series, Wildflowers is wonderful! Robin Jones Gunn gathers the loose ends from the previous novels into a lovely bouquet. The characters are real and experience true growth in their relationships with each other and with the Lord. For those who have read other books in this series it's a treat to see what has happened in the lives of the characters that we've already met. This is a lovely book and can stand alone or as the beautiful ending to a marvelous series.

I was so excited to read 'Wildflowers' by Robin Jones Gunn. Even though this book is #8 in a series, I think you could enjoy this book on its own. However, if you've read all the Glenbrooke books, you'll have a deeper appreciation of Robin's skill in including small 'aha!' details in the book. Genevieve is a delightful and real character. She goes through many struggles with her relationship with the Lord, and with the help of her new friends in Glenbrooke, she gains a deeper understanding of how much God loves her. Through those lessons she learns, she allows God to deepen her love for her family. This is a fabulous book, as are all of Robin's Glenbrooke novels.

Genevieve Ahrens had been married to Steven many years. Their oldest daughter had already left the nest and only two remained. With Steven being an airline captain and gone often, she kept busy with her newly-acquired café. Gena had wonderful plans for the Wildflower Café. The famous author of the 'All The Best' line of books even stopped by. He planned to return in a few months to see if the changes would be good enough for him to feature the café in his next book! Gena's assistant, Leah, was a big help and a close friend.

When a major crisis occurred at the café, once again Steven was not there for Gena. Their marriage problems were getting worse and their future together looked bleak. But friends slowly showed her how to open her heart to God. Gena must learn that sometimes God does not answer prayers for very good reasons.

***** An excellent example of writing! This is the type of novel that should be read slowly and savored. I enjoyed every page! Each time I stopped reading it was with a glow in my heart. Wonderful! I hope to see more from this author soon. *****
