A deep yearning for home led Eliza to Wyatt Orchards ten years ago. Now, fragrant blossoms herald spring, but the orchard is a place of secrets and heartache. After the death of her husband Frank, Eliza is left with three young children and mounting debts, and she faces the realization that it’s all up to her. But she has no idea how to run an orchard alone. When a stranger appears at her doorstep, Eliza guesses he is no different than the other out-of-luck characters searching for work during the Depression. But the familiarity with which Gabe tends to the farm raises unanswered questions.

With a vulnerable heart, Eliza is unwittingly drawn to his gentle ways. But she also fears that Gabe hides a past and motives that could jeopardize all she has fought to attain for herself and her children.

    " This book was an unexpected pleasure to read. It was my first book by Lynn Austin, and I'll be checking out more of her books this summer. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shell Belle | 1/31/2014

    " Love this book! I've read it twice. It's one of those that are perfect for curling up by the fire with a blanket. Its one of the rather rare good Christian books- its romantic, but it also deals with many other things and is actually good literature as well as being inspirational! The characters are believable, and the use of many different story lines- past and present- means you never lose interest. I definitely recommend it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Charlotte | 1/16/2014

    " This book, I came across quite randomly, but I have to say it was amazing. A bit of a slow starter, but as I got into it I couldn't help but get sucked it. It's such a thick book though, I was sad that there were a couple times I had to put it down to go to work or sleep. However, it's definitely something to read on an empty weekend because once you get passed the beginning, it's hard to put down. It's set up in several of the characters' stories, which is also really nice to see. You don't see that style of writing too often. I especially loved Aunt Batty's story. Anyway, go read it! "
