Set in Door County, Wisconsin on a five generation family orchard, we are introduced to Einars, the patriarch, and his daughter Sanna. Einars runs the apple orchard while Sanna is trying her hand at apple cider. Einars hires Isaac to help for the season along with his young son Bass. In the mix you have Anders, Sanna’s brother, who is interested in selling the orchard to make way for progress.

We are introduced to many trials throughout the story. Einars seems to know how Sanna will react to each situation and is trying to show her there is life beyond her trees…life with the people around her. Isaac is running from recent events and wants to have one last summer with Bass.

I was immediately drawn into the book. I can relate to Sanna on so many levels: blunt, not showing a lot of emotion, preferring to be alone with nature or even a book. The author was able to bring the orchard and its vivid colors to life in a way that allowed me to actually see the colors and even have an idea on how the cider would taste.

Finished this today.

Now, fair warning, this is an ARC. An unedited proof. I don't mind them, normally, but this one drove me a little batty with all the inconsistencies. The worst being all the conflicting info about the boy, Bass. First he's written as if he's about 4 or 5, hiding behind his dad's leg. Then he's 12, & wants to drive the ATV. Then he's "screaming with anger because his daddy took away his candy" like he's 2. At the end, she seems to have settled on him being 10.

Aside from that, I enjoyed the story. Inconsistencies just bug me, that's all. :-)

Reserved for something. To Be Determined.
