Bittersweet

Sometimes the past shouldn’t stay buried. Sometimes the truth needs to be told.

When Julie Bowers was widowed, her world faded from the vibrant colors of summer to a monochromatic blur. Now she is trying to get on her feet financially while raising two children. Still, she refuses to accept a job working at her mother’s florist shop, Bloom Couture. Catherine—her mother—has always kept her at arm’s length, when Julie simply wanted those sturdy arms wrapped tightly around her.

When Julie overhears two strangers’ conversation regarding grief over a deceased mother, God stirs

her spirit. He wants Julie to soften her heart toward Catherine and reengage with her emotionally distant mother, even to the point of completing bizarre tasks and errands.

Through it all, Julie’s new dream job turns nightmarish, and her teen daughter is drifting away. Meanwhile, letters from the past show that seeds of familial dysfunction were sown generations ago. Is God simply teaching Julie how to avoid making the same mistakes as her maternal ancestors? Or, is God’s plan bigger than Julie can imagine?
