Mae Wilkey, 27, is the adorable town- spinster post-mistress, who, due to the dreadful lack of eligible men, has been waiting for Jake, the only (seemingly) available man in North Dakota, to propose.
But time is marching on and Mae has commitments. She is the devoted guardian to her fourteen year old brother Jeremy who has special needs. And then there's Pauline, ninety two, a feisty kind hearted soul (just don't cross her) who is suffering from dementia and also depends on Mae for help. So, it is obvious that our overworked post mistress must come up with a plan. When Mae discovers a name and address among Pauline's papers, she sends a letter to a man named Tom Curtis who may or may not be Pauline's nephew.
Love Blooms in Winter is a testament to love finding you in the most unlikely places and the loving kindness that God has for his creation.
So get something warm to drink and curl up in your favorite comfy chair and make some new friends in Dwadlo North Dakota.

ABOUT THE BOOK
1892—Mae Wilkey’s sweet next-door neighbor, Pauline, is suffering from old age and dementia and desperately needs family to come help her. But Pauline can’t recall having kin remaining. Mae searches through her desk and finds a name—Tom Curtis, who may just be the answer to their prayers.
Tom can’t remember an old aunt named Pauline, but if she thinks he’s a long-lost nephew, he very well may be. After two desperate letters from Mae, he decides to pay a visit. An engagement, a runaway train, and a town of quirky, loveable people make for more of an adventure than Tom is expecting. But it is amazing what can bloom in winter when God is in charge of things.
