Winter Garden by Kristin Hannah
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Meredith and Nina Whitson are as different as sisters can be. One stayed at home to raise her children and manage the family apple orchard: the other followed a dream and traveled the world to become a famous photojournalist. But when their beloved father falls ill, Meredith and Nina find themselves together again, standing alongside their cold, disapproving mother, Anya, who even now, offers no comfort to her daughters. On his deathbed, their father extracts a promise from the women in his life: the fairy tale will be told one last time - and all the way to the end. Thus begins an unexpected journey into the truth of Anya's life in war-torn Leningrad, more than five decades ago.
This book hooked me from the very beginning. I hate to read a good books fast, because then I am sad when they are finished, but I had to read it to see how it would all tie together. Fantastic! I will definately be checking out more books from this author.
