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?

The characters are the star of this story. I don't think I realized until reading this second book how much I have come to care about them, individually and as a family. I have mentioned in reviews of other books by author Grace Greene, that I appreciate the depth of the characters she creates - the most likeable characters are flawed, the worst of the bunch often have redeeming qualities. This brings them each to life as realistic, believable people. This is certainly the case in this series as well.
I might feel drawn to the main character of Kara because I can relate to many of traumas she has been through, the issues and emotions she wrestles with - but these may be things we all deal with on some level. Regardless, I find myself rooting for her, hoping the other characters give her a break, support her as she needs. This whole bunch are folks I'd enjoy knowing.
Another draw for me to this series is the location. Cub Creek is set in rural Virginia, just outside Louisa County, part way between Richmond and Charlottesville. Most folks are familiar with the hustle and bustle of Northern VA, just outside of Washington DC; the Blue Ridge Pkwy of the western part of the state; and the coastal areas along the Atlantic Ocean and Chesapeake Bay to the southeast. But few are aware of the beautiful countyside and fulfilling lifestyle in the center of this diverse state. Greene paints beautiful pictures of this area, representing it well.
I am enjoying following the renovation of Wildflower House, and the personal growth of Kara as she moves through the decisions associated with renovation. This book is a satisfying chapter to the story and ends well, but is far from the end of the story. I have pre-ordered Wildflower Christmas, a novella following Wildflower Hope (expected release date Nov.12, 2019), and I hope for/look forward to additional books in the series to follow.
I highly recommend this book, series, to anyone seeking an identifiable story of a woman coming into her own, learning to trust in her own strengths while opening herself to trust and let others in
