Book Review: Where Lilacs Still Bloom

"Where Lilacs Still Bloom" written by Jane Kirkpatrick chronicles the journey of Hulda Klager from Woodland, Washington to create new varieties of lilacs and the life she lived with her family in the early to mid-1900's.

I apologetically say that I was challenged by melancholy tone of the book.  The idea behind the story is a good one, yet I found it difficult to read.  I normally am enthralled by historical fiction, and living in Western Washington, I was particularly excited to receive this book.  I am left feeling like I wish I could post a more positive review.

Disclosure of Material Connection: I was provided with a free copy of this book by Waterbrook/Multnomah Publishing Group in exchange for my honest opinion.
