"The Winters In Bloom is exquisitely rendered and incredibly
addictive. It will resonate with—and terrify—any parent who lies
anxiously awake at night, fretful of the maladies and mayhem that

with despair and hope, and above all, the redemptive power of love."

"Tucker's latest novel is not just 'women's fiction,' it is literary
fiction with characters that subtly emerge until they have become as
real as your own family. The story is ostensibly about
overprotective parents Kyra and David Winter, whose son Michael has
disappeared from the backyard, but it is also about time and memory
and how the past makes us who we are. Tucker's talent for
storytelling is evident as subplots are seamlessly woven into twists
and turns that continually take the reader by surprise. This is one
of those rare books that you can't stop thinking about and that
makes you reevaluate everything you thought you knew about your own
family and your own life. I loved it!"
