One Winter Morning by Isabelle Broom

On a winter morning she lost a piece of her heart. Can she find it again? 
Evangeline isn't feeling very festive this December. 
The frosty mornings and twinkling fairy lights only remind her it's been a year since she lost her adoptive mother, who took her in as a baby and raised her as her own. 
She's never felt more alone - until she discovers her birth mother's identity. And where to find her. 
A lifetime and thousands of miles have separated Evangeline and Bonnie. Now, travelling to New Zealand could be Evangeline's chance to confront the woman who gave her up.
But is she ready for what she'll find?
The answers she's been looking for, a new family to heal her . . . Or someone she could never have expected?

Genie's adoptive mother has died and Genie can't move on from it. She blames herself and is carrying the guilt like a ton weight. Nothing seems to help. Nearly a year later her father tells her he knows where to find her birth mother.
Eventually after a lot of thought about what she will find when she gets there, Genie is on the plane to New Zealand, the other side of the world.
It is a big step for Genie to come face to face with her birth mother, wondering if she'll even want to see her.
When her birth mother is not there Genie gets to know other people connected with her and is accepted by them.
This is the place where eventually Genie will begin to heal.
A really lovely story in a beautiful setting. I wanted to get on a plane ,and and fly to New Zealand to experience the delights described in this book.
I think this story calls for a sequel.

Out now in kindle,paperback and audio format.
