Bend Toward the Sun is such a fantastic debut novel!
I wasn’t completely sure I’d like this one at first, romances between two issue-laden people is so not my thing, but this novel kept grabbing at me and I kept reading.
This story had a lot that I really do enjoy - healing with the help of nature / gardening, botany, realistic, emotional, beautifully descriptive writing, and characters you truly come to care for.
There was also a lot of humor - personally, I adored the nod to Joan Wilder (thee Joan Wilder?) 🤣
I enjoyed this one so much.
