Love can be tragic.

17th Century America:
A Shaman’s daughter falls in love with an Englishman,
only her hand has been promised to a warrior.

Tears fall.

Promises are broken.

Rage is unleashed.

Souls are bound or shattered.

Present Day:
Laney Stillwater dreams about a boy she has never met,
but she longs for the attention of the ever popular and gorgeous, Jordan Stone.

Time tempts change.

Destined souls awaken.

Love gets a second chance.

Souls are bound or shattered.

What will destiny offer this time?

Reconciliation or more despair?
Wildflower is a truly different type of story that is both beautiful and emotional. Taking reincarnation and throwing in past loves, makes, in my opinion, the overdone love triangle okay.

This book was a great and enjoyable read. I loved every page, held on to every word, and felt every emotion possible for the main character. When I first found this book, I was kind of iffy on it. The summary didn't give me much to work off of, but is still intrigued me enough to try it out. Honestly, I'm glad I did.

You don't see a lot of books with reincarnation used to the extent this did. I'm very happy to have found a book that deals with both that and a Native American main character with a likable plot and moving stories. I really wanted Laney to get with the new boy because I, for one, gush over those who show their love. At first, Jordan seemed like a real jerk. I mean, seriously, you let a bully.... well, bully the girl you like because you don't want her reputation ruined? First of all, you're a guy. Who the hell cares what a snotty little girl threatens? You protect the woman you love, not completely shatter her, jackass. *cough* That's another reason I wanted Laney to go with the other boy.

I really enjoyed this book, and I am so excited to read the second book! <3
