Xavi doesn’t believe in love anymore. Love has never changed the outcome of anything. It has only hurt him. 

Sam is sick, and he wants one last thing. He wants Xavi to be with him, to stay with him until the end. Xavi drops everything and promises Sam he will be there. 

As they travel across the countryside in a stolen sea-green Cadillac, they search for something neither has the courage to admit he’s looking for. But as the days slip away, Xavi isn’t sure he can keep his promise; he isn’t sure about anything. He can’t help Sam do this. He can’t stand by and watch Sam suffer, can’t be content to let Sam give up. 

Saving Sam becomes the only thing that makes any sense, the only thing Xavi wants. Loving Sam becomes the most important promise he will ever make. Now he just has to convince Sam that life—and love—are worth fighting for.

Intense story.
Overall 
 
3.0

Wildflowers is an incredibly intense story of two young men who care deeply for one another, yet have never truly communicated with each other. Whilst the story line is wonderfully emotional and engaging, it is also a little confusing. Xavi is unsure as to the nature of his feelings for Sam, yet is willing to travel the country with him, leaving behind a fairly settled life. It is, I think, Xavi's uncertainty for much of the book that made it a little difficult for me to really connect with him, and ultimately the relationship. 
It is, as I said, a very emotional story, a very hopeful story, superbly written, as all this author's books have been and beautifully poignant at times....just a little confusing.
