Title: One Winter Morning
Author: Isabelle Broom

Blurb: Genie isn't feeling very festive this December.

The frosty mornings and twinkling fairy lights only remind her it's been a whole year since she lost her adoptive mother, who took her in as a baby and raised her as her own.

She's never felt more alone - until she discovers her birth mot
her's identity.

And where to find her: New Zealand, half the world away.

Travelling there could be her one chance to meet the woman who gave her up.

But will she find the answers she has been looking for? Or something she could never have expected?

Review: A new Isabelle Broom book has become a highlight in my reading year and with One Winter Morning she completely surpassed all my (high!) expectations. This is a beautiful touching story set in a stunning location that stole my heart. 

I found the characters in this story very interesting and I loved getting to know them. The story unfolds quite slowly so you don't really know how they are connected until you are totally immersed in their world. I think it worked very well here as it made it easier for me to connect with them and understand what they were going through. 

I especially enjoyed reading about New Zealand. Locals Tui and Kit were the perfect guides for Genie in this foreign land and they made such a great job that not only she felt in love with the beautiful nature but so did I. New Zealand has just climbed to the top of my dream holiday destinations. 

I think the development of the main character Genie was perfect. At the beginning of the book she was quite lost but she found her inner strength and took a chance at life again. A very inspiring woman. I think I will be revisiting her story quite soon to enjoy all the little things that happen to her in more detail. 

One Winter Morning is the perfect story to escape to this winter. There's plenty of sunshine and adventures waiting for you in New Zealand!

Rating: 5 stars

I would like to thank the publisher for sending me a copy of this book via NetGalley. This is my honest opinion.
