~ Giveaway: The Winters in Bloom by Lisa Tucker ~

Together for over a decade, Kyra and David Winter are happier than they ever thought they could be. They have a comfortable home, stable careers, and a young son, Michael, whom they adore. Yet because of their complicated histories, Kyra and David have always feared that this domestic bliss couldn’t last - that the life they created was destined to be disrupted. And on one perfectly ordinary summer day, it is: Michael disappears from his own backyard. The only question is whose past has finally caught up with them. David feels sure that Michael was taken by his troubled ex-wife, while Kyra believes the kidnapper must be someone from her estranged family, someone she betrayed years ago.

As the Winters embark on a journey of time and memory to find Michael, they will be forced to admit these suspicions, revealing secrets about themselves they’ve always kept hidden. But they will also have a chance to discover that it’s not too late to have the family they’ve dreamed of; that even if the world is full of risks, as long as they have hope, the future can bloom.

Lisa Tucker is a terrific and very talented contemporary novelist who has written six fiction books. She was on my list of authors to read for too long so when I had the opportunity, I read an ARC of her most recent book, The Winters in Bloom.  This is an riveting and poignant story that is also inspiring. You can read my review here, The Winters in Bloom, if you'd like.
Be sure to visit Lisa Tucker's website, too!
