Where Petals Fall review
Junie Olson returns home after her fathers death to painful memoires and new confusing visions of her childhood friend's abduction. Her marriage is falling apart while she watches her four year old daughter Sarah regress. Her inability to comprehend why or how to help becomes more than she can handle. Determined to find the answers, she seeks help from Sarah's therapist and although fearful of what she may discover, she must find her inner strength to move forward. Even at the risk of losing her marriage.
Junie is dealing with so many issues from both her past and her present life that you just can't help but feel sympathy and connect strongly with her from the very beginning. Like a twisting path through a forest this story has many hidden surprises. One particular feature I loved was Junie's therapy through baking. The author captures the process and the healing for this character so well that I longed for a bite of these baked goods. An emotional story that grips your heart.
I received a copy in exchange for an honest review.
