Kyra and David Winter are happier than they ever expected to be. They have a comfortable home, stable careers, and a young son, Michael, whom they adore. Though everyone who knows the Winters considers them extremely overprotective parents, both Kyra and David believe they have good reasons for fearing that something will happen to their little boy. And then, on a perfectly average summer day, it does, when Michael disappears from his own backyard. The only question is whose past has finally caught up with them: David feels sure that Michael was taken by his troubled ex-wife, while Kyra believes the kidnapper must be someone from her estranged family, someone she betrayed years ago.

As the Winters embark on a journey of time and memory to find Michael, they will be forced to admit these suspicions, revealing secrets about themselves they've always kept hidden. But they will also have a chance to discover that it's not too late to have the family they've dreamed of; that even if the world is full of risks, as long as they have hope, the future can bloom.

Lyrical, wise, and witty, The Winters in Bloom is an enchanting, life-affirming story that will surprise readers and leave them full of wonder at the stubborn strength of the human heart.

    " I loved this book. I have enjoyed all of Lisa Tucker's books, although The Promised World: A Novel has been my least favorite. I love the references to Philadelphia and the surrounding areas. At first I thought it was someone else who took Michael before I figured out who it was. It was a quick read but very enjoyable. "

    " Stayed up late to find out "whodunnit" that is a compliment. Would make a good tv movie. "

    " I thoroughly enjoyed The Winters in Bloom by Lisa Tucker. The book centers around a single day in the life of the Winter family. Both David and Kyra are plauged by troubled family pasts, and they are terrified that something will happen to their precious five year old, Michael. When Michael is taken from their backyard while both David and Kyra are inside, their worst fears become their reality and they must face the family members and the pasts that have made them who they are today in an attempt to find out who took Michael. The way that the story unfolds with multiple plot lines over different time periods with Tucker giving out just a little bit of information at a time made the book hard to put down -- I kept wanting to know what I was going to find out next! The characters are all deeply damaged by things that happened in their pasts, and the relationships that form between them -- husband and wife, sisters, parents and children -- are really well thought through and believable. Think Jonathan Franzen with more likeable characters. I loved the book and give it an enthusiastic thumbs up. I look forward to reading more of Tucker's work. "
