    Today, I went to the beach with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and screamed.

    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.

    A story about two sisters who finally work things out: together sounds intriguing. I like stories with secrets revealed, as their mother’s secret past will come out into the open, uniting the 2 sisters and allowing their father to die in peace, knowing their future will be that of the relationship they should/could have always had. Plus, they’ll understand their mother’s difficulties.

    I would love to read Winter Garden. My mother was a mysterious person til the day she died. She had a diary that my sister and I were reading after her death, my brother snatched from our hands and burned it, HMMMM. Have always wondered why, he said because it was private. She wouldn’t have left it if she didn’t want it read.

    I would like to read Night Road. This was tough because I got a Kindle for Christmas and the first book I bought was Winter Garden. Winter Garden was AMAZING..I loved tis book. I am hoping that Krstin’s book tour brings her to my area so a I can get a signed copy of Winter Garden. There are very few books that I read more than once.. this one is on that list. I know Night Road will be as good if not better. Each book tops the last… she is like a fine wine.

    Since I already read Winter Garden, I would absolutely love to read Night Road. I loved Winter Garden so much that I began reading all of Kristen Hannah’s other books.

    I think I would like to read “Winter Garden” first. It sounds very intriguing and I am already wanting to know the secret that makes a mother so cold to her children. Even the title of the book sounds cold! I have read a few of Kristin Hannah’s books and enjoyed them.

    REPLY
  58. Suzanne Viggiano says:

    After reading about both books…it’s hard to say which book I would want to read first. Kristin Hannah is a new author to me so I don’t have have history with her books. Both books have interesting stories to me. Night Road has the story of teenager and relationships…and I have a teenage daughter. Winter Garden, about a mother’s past and how her history paved the way for the way for her relationships with her daughter. What I can say is I would like to ready BOTH of these books…and am looking forward to it!

  59. Tina-Joy says:

    Winter Garden… I spent a number of years working in Central/Eastern Europe both before and after the fall of the Berlin Wall. I heard many stories from the years of oppression, saw some of the evidence, yet I found people who persevered, had big hearts reaching out to each other to share what they did have. For me personally, they were a great witness of hope and God’s love. So I’m especially interested to read Anya’s story.

    I find the subject matter of Winter Garden facinating. I think we tend to think of our mothers as just, well, mothers. we forget that they were once young and lives that we really have no information about. I just saw Oprah yesterday talking about a sister that she just found out that she had. And this is an author I have never read and I am always looking for new authors. I love to read!

    I would love to win either book. I have read some of Kristen Hannah’s previous books and enjoyed them. Her books covers frequently draw me in but the subject matter of both of these books intrigue me. I was also amazed to see her age, she has a great look that looks more youthful than her age. We are all so lucky to live in a world that allows us to age gracefully without looking “old” as quickly as women of the past centuries have.

For those who haven’t read this or any of her books, you’re in for a treat! I’m addicted! Can’t wait to see this book as a movie!

    I would read “Winter’s Garden” first. My sister and I are as different as can be, as are the characters in that book, so that one would intrigue me the most. I would also be interested in reading “night road,” but I think I would try “Winter’s Garden” first.

    I would love to read Night Road…know what it is like to give your life for the children. Understand that no matter how hard we try to protect them, life still happens and they make individual choices about the road they are going to travel. This caught my attention, “In the years that follow, each must face the consequences of that single night and find a way to forget…or the courage to forgive.” In the blink of an eye and often times in only one night, our lives can be changed forever. Now, to find our way out of the tunnel towards light of a better future. I simply cannot wait to read this novel…(-:

    Night Road by Kristin Hannah is the choice of books. The cover art beckons one to open the book to discover a path of motherhood and forgiveness. Who hasn’t been down that winding road?

    All Kristin Hannah’s books are wonderful so would love to read them both, but first I guess I would choose Night Road. As a mother of two adult children, facing some challenges with their current decisions, Night Road sounds like it might match the season in life that I am in. My all time favorites are “The Things We Do For Love” and “Distant Shores.” I’ve been recommending her books for a number of years as she is one of the few authors that I follow/read religiously.

    I would definatly start with Winter Garden for two reasons. First my husband is from Poland, he is Polish Russian and he has told me stories about his childhood that litterally make your hair stand on edge. When his Mother comes to visit she speaks no english so he interperts for me why she is in the kitchen making her famous Pierogi, my husband will ask about his dad who dies young, there are secrets that she will not reveal to this day, he keeps trying. Also I would love to read this for another reason, I have a sister and when my dad was sick and on his death bed she left and never came back, taking care of both parents before they passed I felt I needed to do that, still wondering if guilt was involved, there were secrets my family had and I never found out. For some reason when I read a small part of Winter Garden I felt some type of connection, I sincerely hope I am chosen for winning a chance on Winter Garden, for some reason there is a personal connection in this book to what I have lived.

    I would pick Winter Garden. I love books that delve into the dynamics of mothers and daugthers. It sounds interesting about discovering the past of a mom they really don’t know. A definate plus is that parts of it take place during World War II. I love stories about that time period. World War II facinates me. Then, as soon as I finished Winter Garden I would pick up Niight Road, because that sounds like a great story too.

    I have already read Winter Garden along with many other wonderful Kristin Hannah books. My first book was Firefly Lane, which I took on vacation and could not put down. Since I have not read Night Road, I would choose that one. I will read ANYTHING she writes! Love her!

    Night Garden. Although, I am very eager to read both. The reason Night Garden appeals to me is that from the summary it sounds like a story that would show me a glimpse of a topic that has been on my mind lately. With certain events in my life currently, I have recently found myself looking at families, mothers particularly. Night Garden seems to be a story that looks at this and shows the joys and trials of family. I am eager to read this story and to finish the book with a new view and a full heart as all of your books have left me with.

    Wow! I’d have to be honest here, I read Winter Garden already and it was the first book of Kristin’s that I have read and I was blown away. The style of writing captured me from page one and held me until the last word was read. As soon as that book was put down I started looking into other books already published and picked up Firefly Lane.

    So to answer this question….I would LOVE to read Night Road. My favorite author used to be Dean Koontz, but I have a feeling he has been quietly replaced by a woman who’s stories are so richly developed it leaves the reader emotionally connected the whole way through!

    It would be a very hard choice, actually. Because I was very close to both my mom and my sis (and both have passed away), both titles intrigue me. Any book written by Kristin Hannah will be fabulous! She is an amazing writer and although I have not been fortunate enough to read all that she has written, the ones that I have read have been amazing. She is a very gifted writer and every book makes you feel as though you are right there living the story with the characters! I would love to win so that I could add more books to my Kristin Hannah collection….which is quite small so far since I only recently discovered her as a new author to read. If you haven’t yet read anything by Kristin Hannah, be sure to add her to your “to read” list as you won’t be disappointed. Good Luck to Everyone!

    I am loving listening to the books on tape or cd. I borrowed Summer Island last month from my local library. This month I borrowed Firefly Lane through inter-library loan. I always loved being read to as a child and am finding it just as nice as an adult. 🙂

    I would like to read Night Road. I have read Winter Garden and several others. Kristin is a wonderful author, and all of her books keep you interested. You even think about the story even after you put the book down and want to get back to it to see what’s next. Thank you for the wonderful stories.

    I would pick “Night Road” because I love the night sky and I love night time better than day time!!

    I would not say no to “Winter Garden” either if I had to chance to read either because I have not read any of Kristin’s books yet.

    I have Winter Garden but haven’t read it yet. I’ve read all of Kristin’s books and met her quite a few years ago at Costco in Tukwila, WA. I had no idea that she was there signing books……I was in 7th heaven. I love her books and can’t put them down once I start reading them. Can’t wait for Night Road to come out. I will definitely read Winter Garden first though.

    Too late, I already read Winter Garden first and am highly awaiting the new novel Night Road. I really enjoyed Winter Garden as it delves into the family dynamics and builds a closeness between mother and daughter. I teared up at the moments where the mother shares her saga. I think we all can relate to having a lack of communication and not understanding our mothers. I won’t give away the story but know that Kristin Hannah knows how to develop a storyline and this one wasn’t a disappointment!

    I’d like to read Night Road, though I guess I can’t really say “first”. I already own Winter Garden, and have read it several times. It’s a fabulous book, and reading the description of Night Road I just know I’d love it as much as I do Winter Garden! I have one teenage daughter and a second daughter nearing her teens, so I can already relate to the book’s heroine, the mother, and the relationships that involve a mother with her teens. I really would very much like to read this book!! Besides, I’m nearly finished with my little collection of Kristen Hannah books, I need another to keep me reading :o).

    I have read Winter Garden and loved it. I love all of Kristin Hannah’s books. I am dying to read Night Road and so excited that there is a new book coming out. If I did not already read Winter Garden, I would read WInter Garden first because it came out before Night Road and I like to read in order of when they come out. I try to do that but it does not always work.

    I very much liked the way Winter Garden was written and was very surprised at the end. I never saw it coming. I will not say and spoil it for readers who have not read it yet. It is very good and would be a good first read before Night Road. I enjoy all of Kristin’s books and look forward to new books coming out. I cannot wait to read Night Road and all the surprises and emotions that come with it. It is exciting to have a new book to read soon.

    Keep up the good work Kristin, we love your books.

    I want Night Ride! I’ve been waiting for it to come out so I have a new Hannah book to read. I met Kristin Hannah and got a signed hardcover copy of Winter Garden to add to my Hannah collection when it first came out. I would love an advance copy of Night Ride. These books really speak to me about relationships between moms and daughters, from both the mom and daughter side. Hannah’s books are complex and true to life with the good, bad and enduring. I enjoy the great writing and also reading a story here the relationship works out. That’s encouraging to me when I hit speed bumps with my daughter or sons. Winter Garden touched me because it helped explain why a distant mom might have good reasons. I’m just so excited to read Kristin’s next book!

Kristin Hannah knows how to pull a reader into the very emotion that the character is feeling, and you don’t find that very often with a writer. I turn to her books to escape the reality of my life, and find myself feeling thankful for the things I do have, after reading something so powerful.

It was a touching story, most of yours are, and leave you trying to understand your own relationships, actually it gives you insights into them. Look forward to reading Night Road. Real stories, not always the way you want them to end but isn’t that real life? Thank you for your lovely stories that touch our lives in ways we never would have expected.

    I would like to read Winter Garden as I love Kristin’s books. I feel as I am seeing firsthand through the eyes of her characters what they are experiencing and going through and as if I am actually there as well. I am hoping to start reading her book True Colors soon. I loved Firefly Lane. I also have yet to read Summer Island.

    I am a big fan of Kristin’s books so I have already read ‘Winter Garden’. Loved it so much I have borrowed it out.

So I would definitely love to read ‘Night Road’ as soon as possible! Cannot wait to have a great read and share with others!

    I would like to read “Winter Garden”. My mother is from Latvia. At the end of WWII, when she was 10 yrs old, Latvia was once again headed for occupation by the Soviets. My grandparents, having lived previously under Soviet occupation during WWI, vowed never again to live under Soviet rule. My grandfather declared that they were going to America. What transpired over the next 5 years is a family story that I hope to share with the world someday. My mother was 15 years old when she finally reached America. My grandfather did not make it. The experiences my mother had certainly shaped her for the rest of her life–some good and some bad.

    I just read “Winter Garden”. and LOVED it! I would love to read “Night Road”!! Her characterization was so real, and the deeply moving story of the mother’s true story became so inticing to me, I couldn’t put the book down. In fact, I was sorry when it ended. The story really made me understand some stories my father tried not to tell about WWII, (it was too painful for him to describe the events) I am an avid reader, who loves to discover ‘new’ authors.

    Motherhood being one of life’s slippery slopes would entice me to read NIGHT ROAD first. Over the years of being a mother, I have found it to be a work in progress, a learning curve, trial and error and on the job training. And forgiving on both sides is important. This book would be a great insight in addressing the above concerns.

    Night Road is of interest to me because it deals with mother-daughter relationships. As a survivor of incest by my father, my relationship with my mother has been quite rocky for many years, especially because of her position that she “didn’t know.” Although my father is now deceased, I have worked on my relationship with her all these years and have come to resolve many of the issues. This is mainly because she is now 86 years old and pretty much doesn’t remember much about the past. If this book can continue to shed light on forgiveness, I’m sure that my own work on forgiveness will be enhanced.
