Lorna Seilstad in her new book, “As Love Blooms book coverAs Love Blooms” Book Three in The Gregory Sisters series published by Revell brings us into the life of Tessa Gregory.

From the Back Cover:  Young romance opens like a rose . . . but even a rose has its thorns.

Tessa Gregory is nothing if not tenacious. Denied a position as a horticulturist at prestigious Como Park in Saint Paul, Minnesota, she is not above a little benevolent deception in order to get the park superintendent to change his mind and hire her. She plans to infiltrate the world of wealthy and influential people in hopes of drumming up financial support for a world-class conservatory. But before she can put those plans into action, she meets Reese King, a handsome gardener at Como Park–and a major distraction. Still, Reese might be the key to achieving her dream. But is his goal to help her . . . or to capture her heart?

Against the lush backdrop of manicured gardens and greenhouses full of the exotic, Lorna Seilstad weaves a sweet and sassy story that is sure to delight.

1913 and women’s rights. It is into this time period that we join Tessa and her desire to  to enter into the horticulturist field and work at the prestigious Como Park in Saint Paul, MN. However women have not achieved equality just yet and she is denied. This is not going to stop her and if you cannot enter through the front door there are always other doors to try. Then there is the romance between Tessa and Reese. Add to that the sub-stories regarding the other sisters and Ms. Seilstad has given us quite a book. “As Love Blooms” is a lot of fun.  Ms. Seilstad does a wonderful job of transporting us back to a time and place that we will, sadly, never experience again so savor the time spent in these pages.  This is an interesting story filled with lots of excitement and romance as well as history.  I liked it a lot and I am looking forward to more from this fabulous author.
