Wildflowers from Winter (May 2012/WaterBrook Press), by debut novelist Katie Ganshert, was nominated in the Fiction: Contemporary Romance category.

Katie Ganshert was born and raised in the Midwest, where she writes stories about finding faith and falling in love.
Those qualified to vote in the awards this year judged the nominations on their impact, including their ability to evoke emotion and speak to people’s hearts; open people’s minds to different ways of thinking; and encourage and affirm Christian living. Winners of the Christian Retailing’s Best awards—formerly known as the Retailers Choice Awards—will be presented at the International Christian Retail Show in St. Louis in June.
