Rhonda Byler has a gift for tending to gardens, but has a past that haunts her. Then here is Samuel King and his family's orchard and their family troubles and joys. Rhonda's understanding and expertise at gardening and canning binds a relationship with the King family.
This is the first book in a series, and it seemed that much of it was setting up for what would come later. If you want a book with a quick ending, then this is not for you. The characters and families are developed so that they can be further explored in the coming books.
There were a lot of characters and at first I felt confused with all the names and families, but Woodsmall does a good job and trying to keep things sorted out.
The book kept my attention throughout and I am looking forward to reading the next book so I can find out what happens next!
I received this book for free from Waterbrook Press for my honest opinion.
