Book Description:

this beautiful and moving story of love, growth, and redemption among
the stunning red rocks of Sedona, Arizona, Sydney—a teenaged Army
orphan—discovers that love knows no bounds and life has many twists
and turns of fate. After she is forced to move in with her late
mother’s sister Blanche and Blanche’s abusive alcoholic husband
Dean, Sidney finds purpose and friendship in Lexy, the daughter of
Max Heller the City’s most prominent widower and business magnate.
Unknowingly, the girls’ antics awaken Blanche’s lost and
suppressed passions and stirs Max’s long-thwarted drive to build a
loving and complete family. What emerges is the wonderfully
successful Epicurian Café, the brainchild of Blanche and Sydney
actively encouraged by Max and Lexy. The Café quickly becomes a
center of the community, the start of a new life for Blanche and
Sydney, and a chance for Max and Lexy to discover true love and the
meaning of commitment. An emotional roller-coaster with its exciting
twists and turns, Wildflower is an exhilarating and satisfying read.

Excerpt One:

Why don’t we open a business?
Like a simple sandwich and coffee shop,” Sydney announced with a
glimmer of hope in her eyes.
A sandwich shop?” Blanche asked,
looking surprised and a bit taken aback.
Yeah, why not?”
While Sydney waited for an answer,
Blanche just looked at her, dumbfounded
“Sydney, I would love to open a
sandwich shop, but it takes a lot of money--money that we just don’t
Oh please, Aunt Blanche! I bet you
can get a loan from the bank. It will be exciting!” Sydney pleaded.
I don’t think that your uncle
will approve. Sydney I love your idea, truly do! I was taken aback at
first, because it has always been a dream of mine to open a little
shop of some kind on Main Street,” Blanche said wistfully. ”It
costs a lot of money to open up a business, besides I have an offer
for a job in Prescott.”

Pooh on Uncle Dean, and turn down
that job. For me, please? You can ask Annette how to open a
business--she will know, since she owns her own business.” Sydney
said begging her aunt.

I will think about it,
okay, Sydney?” Blanche said making her way to her closet and
picking out a dress.
