By Heather Vargas

One summer evening changed their lives forever.

If you’ve ever asked, why bad things happen or, where is God when you are facing tragedy, then Bloom is a must read. Heather Vargas gives an honest look at life with authenticity as she travels the road of grief. Bloom will grab at your heart, but you will find yourself laughing amidst tears at her irreverent, fearless tone in addressing complex issues. In the end, Bloom offers hope to all for a better tomorrow.

 “Bloom” is the most honest, vulnerable, personal account of a mother’s grieving heart that I have ever read. One cannot help but feel a powerful bond with the Vargas family as their story of shattered bliss unfolds and begins to resolve. I have no doubt that God will mightily use “Bloom” in his providence for those who seek to pick up the pieces after the death of a cherished child.”
