Winter Flowers I read this book as it is the choice of the local book club when I visit my friend in Northern Ireland. I really enjoyed it and read it in three sessions. It is the story of two sisters who question their ability as mothers due to their own childhood experiences. Ivy struggles to build a relationship with her son and Hazel faces the difficulties of being a one parent family and a series of disastrous relationships. I felt the first part of the book told the story rather than revealing it through flashbacks and I did wonder where it was all leading to but once the scene was set and the characters began to emerge and interact,then I was totally absorbed. They both endure a steep learning curve but I won't reveal more! I read this as an ebook although I am a traditionalist at heart but it was great to be able to access the book immediately and it will be easier to take it with me when I am travelling light.

Format: Paperback
The book is about 2 sisters, Iris and Hazel, who are struggling with their lives and the secrets they are both hiding from everyone else. Iris knows her sister struggles with being a mother to her 2 young sons Jack and Luke, but can't bring herself to act on it, especially given her own actions in the past. But when Hazel's boyfriends put the two young children in danger, both Hazel and Iris realise big changes have to be made to protect the boys, and themselves. I have to say I didn't really like Hazel throughout the book, she was quite selfish and as a mum myself, I got fed up with the way she put her own feelings above those of the two boys, again and again. However, when she tries to change, you can see how hard she tries and you can't dislike her then, she's just a confused and struggling woman at the end of the day. Iris was much more likeable, although she has a shocking secret that might turn that likeability on its head when its revealed. I found her to be a nice character, one that wants the best for her family, and I thought how she protected her sister was very touching.

As I said, there are quite a lot of secrets in the book that come out as the story progresses, and I don't want to spoil the book at all by putting any of them here because they really need to come out as you're reading. Coffey has done a great job of hiding these secrets about the characters and their pasts from the reader, because I certainly didn't see any of them coming, but when they're revealed, you do see how they've affected the characters and the decisions they have made with their lives so far.

Great read. I couldn't put it down. Really good storyline and keeps the reader wanting to know what happens next. I have literally read all of Carol Coffey's books in the space of a few weeks and they are all really excellent and all very different stories. Highly recommend anything by this Author.
