    Susan Wiggs still delivers stories I love.

    The first time I picked up a Susan Wiggs novel: I was nineteen and saw a copy of The Charm School at the book store. Something just called out to me and I knew that I had to read it. From there I read The Horsemaster's Daughter and got hooked on Ms. Wiggs. Her ability to find beauty in the most adverse of circumstances draws me back every time. Family Tree is the latest in a long line of novels that will break the heart and give readers a look at the positives in a situation that tests the boundaries of one's strength. Annie had it all, but in one second she lost a lifetime of memories and is left picking up the pieces of her broken life. With the help of a wise woman and the fortitude to take a chance, Annie learns that life is what you make it. Over twenty years and Susan Wiggs can still deliver stories that I love to read.

    Love this story!!!

    I love, love this story. You just fall in love with the main characters and want to cheer them on. I didn't want to put the book down, but I didn't want it to end either. I'd like to read more about Annie and her family and friends and maybe a little more kicking to the curb for the ex-husband.

    Family Tree by Susan Wigs

    If I had to choose one word to describe my impression after reading FAMILY TREE by Susan Wiggs it would be gripping. Right from the start my attention and soon after my emotions were completely caught up in this poignant and beautifully written story of Annie Rush's life, both before and after a tragic accident. Wiggs reveals Annie's life and the choices she's made while skillfully drawing you in to her joys, sadness, anger, disappointments, struggles, excitement, and love. The complete picture of a life fully lived, as is typical of Wiggs' books, which are always so finely detailed. "It’s time to let go of the person you were. Try to recognize the new person emerging from all this." While there is a love story involved, the theme is clearly more about starting over than romance. About a second chance in every sense of the word. As a young woman Annie walks away from Fletcher Wyndham, her first love, in order to pursue her dreams. She found great success in her career and believed she had a solid marriage with Martin, her husband and business partner. Her discovery of his betrayal is immediately followed by an accident that leaves her in a coma and back with her family in Vermont. Her recovery process allows her to take fresh look at her life, her relationships and decisions as she heals. This includes a reunion with her father, who had walked away from the family when she was just a child, and another chance to rebuild. But more importantly getting back to her roots puts her first loves in perspective. Fletcher, who has never gotten over her, and vice versa. Her love of food and cooking, instilled by the time spent at her grandmother's side from an early age. And her gift of capturing the key moments and heart of people in her films. Wiggs writing style flows easily, even as she moves back and forth between the present and the past. Her characters and story are fully developed and, as I said in the beginning, gripping. Reading FAMILY TREE reminds me of how her writing is always consistently fabulous. It's been awhile since I've read one of her books and now I'm truly asking myself why. Don't miss out on this one! 4 stars

    Family Tree

    Wonderful book. She showed how sometimes we make difficult for ourself because we are afraid to make the same mistakes that our parents did. We should be more willing to talk things out.
