Love Blooms in Winter by Lori Copeland

Best selling author Lori Copeland takes us on a train ride to 1892 Dwadlo Norh Dakota, where life is simple, but offers some big surprises.

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.

Lori lives in the beautiful Ozarks with her husband Lance.  Lance and Lori have three sons, three daughter-in-laws, and six wonderful grandchildren, and two great-granddaughters. Lance and Lori are very involved in their church, and active in supporting mission work in Mali, West Africa.

Lori began her writing career in 1982, writing for the secular book market.  In 1995, after many years of writing, Lori sensed that God was calling her to use her gift of writing to honor Him.  It was at that time that Lori began writing for the Christian book market.  To date, she has had over 100 books published.


A romantic new book from bestselling author Lori Copeland that portrays God’s miraculous provision even when none seems possible.

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.
