Can a woman ever really know herself if she doesn't
know her mother?
From #1 New York Times bestselling author Kristin
Hannah comes Winter Garden, a powerful, heartbreaking
novel that illuminates the intricate mother-daughter bond
and explores the enduring links between the present and the
Meredith and Nina Whitson are as different as sisters can
be. One stayed at home to raise her children and manage the
family apple orchard; the other followed a dream and
traveled the world to become a famous photojournalist. But
when their beloved father falls ill, Meredith and Nina find
themselves together again, standing alongside their cold,
disapproving mother, Anya, who even now, offers no comfort
to her daughters. As children, the only connection between
them was the Russian fairy tale Anya sometimes told the
girls at night. On his deathbed, their father extracts a
promise from the women in his life: the fairy tale will be
told one last time―and all the way to the end.
Thus begins an unexpected journey into the truth of Anya's
life in war-torn Leningrad, more than five decades ago.
Alternating between the past and present, Meredith and Nina
will finally hear the singular, harrowing story of their
mother's life, and what they learn is a secret so terrible
and terrifying that it will shake the very foundation of
their family and change who they believe they are.
