Winter Garden by  Kristin Hannah

Winter Garden by Kristin Hannah

July 29, 2016 Whitney Review 1 Comment

First Impressions Winter Garden by Kristin Hannah takes patience, 150 pages of patience. Although, I plugged on because I could tell the book had potential. In reality, I had to wade through a lot of bullshit from Anya’s daughters Meredith and Nina to get to the good stuff. Anya’s story, the truth behind her fairy […]
