Lily Winter returns home to visit her estranged mother in the attempt to get her mother to have some sort of relationship with her daughter, who's now in college. Lily's husband recently died of a heart-attack and to make matters worse she found evidence that he might have been cheating on her. With her daughter at college, she hopes reconnecting with her mother after a ten year estrangement would bring new joy in her life, but she isn't exactly welcomed by her mother, who happens to leaves her with a bombshell. Lily has a twin sister, Camilla, living in Australia!

Despite her fear of planes, Lily hops on a flight to Melbourne, Australia, in all hopes to meet the sister she never knew existed. Almost as soon as she arrives, she hits a brick wall, but her luck turn for the better as an Aussie, named Marcus, insists on helping her track down Camilla. Marcus use to be a bestselling author until a terrible accident shoved his life off course.

As Lily is finally reunited with her twin, sparks fly between Lily and Marcus, but their pasts may still haunt their future.

At first glance of the book cover, I would have never imagined the book was actually set in present time as I thought it would have been set in Victorian times. Nevertheless, I found my self instantly drawn into the search for Lily's twin and I felt for Marcus, who was still punishing himself over his own sister's death. Anita Higman has written a beautiful tale of hope and forgiveness; and she is becoming one of my new favorite authors, as I also liked A Merry Little Christmas. Overall, a Winter in Full Bloom is my favorite book from 2013 and it is a must read for any booklover!
