Book Review: Where Lilacs Still Bloom by Jane Kirkpatrick


Where Lilacs Still Bloom

This book is based on Hulda Klagger's life and her quest to create beauty in her own garden. Although at first she is no supported by her husband, he begins to understand her passion and her God given gifts. Amidst tragedy and natural disasters she perseveres and finds ways to help and love other young women around her. I love how the author weaves two other women's stories to come together at Hulda's garden. Hulda without knowing it influences these ladies to find and create beauty where they are. As the years go by she continues to find and create beauty although her world has been rocked to the core, her faith and eternal perspective are beacons into her destiny. I enjoyed this book and would recommend it.
Received it from Blogging for books.
