    At the turn of the 20th century, in a rural stretch of the Pacific Northwest, a reclusive orchardist, William Talmadge, tends to apples and apricots as if they were loved ones. A gentle man, he's found solace in the sweetness of the fruit he grows and the quiet, beating heart of the land he cultivates. One day, two teenage girls appear and steal his fruit from the market; they later return to the outskirts of his orchard to see the man who gave them no chase. Feral, scared, and very pregnant, the girls take up on Talmadge's land and indulge in his deep reservoir of compassion.

    Very touching story. Well written and characters to fall for. Family is not always blood.

    Would you listen to Summer's Child again? Why?

    Oh Yeah!


    What did you like best about this story?

    The twists. Everytime I thought I knew how it was going to play out, the story headed in a different direction. The characters were very well written and easy to keep track of everyone.


    Which character – as performed by Carla Mercer-Meyer – was your favorite?

    Shelly was my favorite! and the cousin..... written so well you'd have to not like her.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I bought it to listen to on vacation only we were in the Rocky Mountains with really poor signal. Lets just say I got a lot of work done this week listening to this book.


    Any additional comments?

    A must read

    It has been two years since the death of Merritt Heyward's husband, Cal, when she receives unexpected news - Cal's family home in Beaufort, South Carolina, bequeathed by Cal's reclusive grandmother, now belongs to Merritt. Charting the course of an uncertain life - and feeling guilt from her husband's tragic death - Merritt travels from her home in Maine to Beaufort, where the secrets of Cal's unspoken-of past reside among the pluff mud and jasmine of the ancestral Heyward home on the Bluff.

    This is a group of women you'd want to be friends with. I found myself laughing out loud several times. Looking forward to hearing what happens next!

    Audie Award, Audiobook of the Year, 2016. Rachel takes the same commuter train every morning. Every day she rattles down the track, flashes past a stretch of cozy suburban homes, and stops at the signal that allows her to daily watch the same couple breakfasting on their deck. She’s even started to feel like she knows them. "Jess and Jason," she calls them. Their life—as she sees it—is perfect. Not unlike the life she recently lost. And then she sees something shocking. It’s only a minute until the train moves on, but it’s enough. Now everything’s changed. Unable to keep it to herself, Rachel offers what she knows to the police, and becomes inextricably entwined in what happens next, as well as in the lives of everyone involved. Has she done more harm than good? Compulsively readable, The Girl on the Train is an emotionally immersive, Hitchcockian thriller and an electrifying debut.
