Family Tree by Susan Wiggs

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author comes a powerful, emotionally complex story of love, loss, the pain of the past—and the promise of the future.

Sometimes the greatest dream starts with the smallest element. A single cell, joining with another. And then dividing. And just like that, the world changes.

Annie Harlow knows how lucky she is. The producer of a popular television cooking show, she loves her handsome husband and the beautiful Los Angeles home they share. And now, she’s pregnant with their first child. But in an instant, her life is shattered. And when Annie awakes from a yearlong coma, she discovers that time isn’t the only thing she’s lost.

Grieving and wounded, Annie retreats to her old family home in Switchback, Vermont, a maple farm generations old. There, surrounded by her free-spirited brother, their divorced mother, and four young nieces and nephews, Annie slowly emerges into a world she left behind years ago: the town where she grew up, the people she knew before, the high-school boyfriend turned judge. And with the discovery of a cookbook her grandmother wrote in the distant past, Annie unearths an age-old mystery that might prove the salvation of the family farm.

Family Tree is the story of one woman’s triumph over betrayal, and how she eventually comes to terms with her past. It is the story of joys unrealized and opportunities regained. Complex, clear-eyed and big-hearted, funny, sad, and wise, it is a novel to cherish and to remember.

Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

This book was one of the more in-depth stories that I have read in a while. It took me longer to read, but it was because of all of the detail included. I did find the past to current timeline switching took a little getting used to, but overall, it made the storyline interesting.

Annie Harlow was taught to make the most out of life, and so far, she's done her best. She grew up surrounded by love and good food and she turned that into a lifestyle producing her own cooking show with her husband. An unfortunate series of events turns her entire world upside down and Annie is left to rebuild and start her life from scratch. This book is filled with her journey trying to find out what she wants to do with her future while blending her past and present.

Overall, I enjoyed this book. It had a lot of time jumping and soul searching that nearly anyone could relate to. I would recommend it to fans of women's fiction and romance.
