    I absolutely loved this book and was completely able to relate to the characters. Chloe, her mother, aunts and sisters were the 'realest' female characters I had read in a long time. And boy did they bring the flavor and personalities. They literally danced off the page.Chloe goes to her hometown, once her husband, Greggory betrays her in egregious ways. She simply wants to recover. However, once there she discovers that in the midst of all of her family's drama is love, healing and acceptance.I recommend this book to all readers, but, particularly to those 'Wildflower Women' amongst us...angelia vernon menchanAuthor of Mrs. Black?

    This had a lot of characters, that were partially developed, which led to confusion for me. Also too many of the characters seemed like caricatures, rather than real people. I loved the relationships between the sisters. and the adult children with their parents. I'd like to see these characters brought to life. truly. There is potential here to go deeper, rather than just skim the different subjects.

    I didn't like this book. Author introduced too many characters and the plot was a bit confusing. This was my first time reading a book by this author.... Hope her next books are better

    I am about half way through the book, and I am getting drawn in by the characters; however, I am disturbed by the level of cursing in the book. I am going to try to finish it, because it is a book that our book club is reading. However, finishing it would be more enjoyable without all of the fowl mouthed ladies, who even curse in their prayers! I read and/or listen to books with some cursing but when it becomes this pronounced, it sort of ruins it for me...especially since it is a book that is advertised as a novel that deals with faith and spirituality. I'll maintain hope that it will get better as I read further.Beyond that issue, I can see the strength of the women, so far, and I think it is always important to tell of women and their strength, especially through some of the difficult things they encounter.Two other notes...there are a lot of characters, and it is difficult to keep track of them in the beginning. And I wish the publisher had enabled text to speech.

    Wildflowers is a great book about the challenges of Chloe, a young woman who has found herself, developed a great career, thrown a huge curve ball, and is once again trying to find herself and her life during tumultous times. The book emphasizes the strength of a mother and family, much like lionesses in a pride, when life challenges Chloe.Instead of a novel that tells you what is occurring to someone, this book draws you into the life of a young lady, her family, and friends, as Chloe attempts to struggle through life and be strong. The book reads like you are having wine or drinks and talking with a group of friends rather than telling the story from the perspective of a single individual or a third party. Wildflowers envelopes you into the "lives" of each person experiencing Chloe's turmoil and assist her through the difficult times she is facing as she attempts to reinvent herself and struggle through life.We met the author and attended the Atlanta book signing and heard her speak. Lyah Beth LeFlore is a great author and an equally amazing speaker. Her words gave me goose bumps and her voice is beautiful and amazingly powerful. If you have a chance to read the book or hear the author, or both, it will be an amazing experience, guaranteed to move you.

    I really enjoyed this book. ......... I loved all the characters and the relationship they had with each other. I really loved the relationship Chole had with her mom. My favorite character was Cousin C.C. She stayed true to character and she was funny. I love the way it started and ended. Being from Louisiana I understood all the how should I say( beliefs and brews and remedies so to speak)lol.. The one thing That wasn't done that I thought the author should have elaborated more on Aunt Billie Jean the day she found the woman in her husband's truck and the heart attack that happened on that day.. I would highly recommend this book if you want a good feel-good book about family ties and the love that keeps a family together.Signed:A family that prays together stays together.

    WILDFLOWERS invites the reader to take a journey with Chloe Davis Michaels as she experiences a rollercoaster ride of love, hate, fear and family. After only a short time of anticipated marital bliss, Chloe realizes in Gregory Robinson III, she has found the devil reincarnated. His mood swings and temper are frightening at best, and Chloe questions her poor judgment. Will she allow this demonic man to control her life?Chloe finds a peaceful retreat when she returns home to the love and warmth of her close-knit family who refuse to let her fall or wallow in her private pity party. She soon discovers that her sisters, Fawn and Eve, are dealing with their own private hell. Nontheless, they all pull together and epitomize the real meaning of strength. These African American aunts, cousins and sisters truly show what does not kill you will definitely make you stronger.Ms. Leflore writes very vividly and draws the reader into the trials and tribulations of each of the characters. The reader gets a real sense of the importance and the power of sisterhood and family. This book is an excellent read and a follow up would be welcome.Reviewed by Marcia Brevard Wynnfor The RAWSISTAZ(tm) Reviewers
