|Plot Summary of The Sunflower|
|" One week before her wedding, Christine Hollister's fiancé decided to call off the wedding. Christine's best friend, Jessica, decides it is up to her to help Christine out of her state of abandonment and depression. Jessica books a tour that takes Americans to Peru on humanitarian missions, figuring hard work and change of scenery is just what Christine needs. Christine, though at first is reluctant to go, decides she could use an adventure, figuring it would be nice to go somewhere warmer than spend the cold winter alone in Ohio.
While she is over there, she meets an American doctor, Paul Cook, who runs an orphanage called El Girasol, Spanish for ‘the Sunflower.' Christine soon finds herself falling in love again - with the children of the Sunflower, and with Dr. Cook.
But again, Jessica steps in, questioning Christine's reasons for falling in love so soon - was Christine setting herself up for heartbreak again? Was she only weak and on the ‘rebound?' What happens when the fiancé decides he made a mistake? How can Christine love someone all the way in Peru when her family and career are back in Ohio?
