    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.

    Marcia says: "Beautiful, rich, sweeping tale, not a fairy tale."
    "Sad when it ended !!!"

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would highly recommend this audiobook to anyone. The rich narrative, character development make you ache for these people.


    What about Mark Bramhall’s performance did you like?

    His tone reflects the hesitance and awkwardness of the main male character, I could feel the loneliness and longing in Talmedge. Shows the greatest love possible in the human heart that goes beyond sexual feelings.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Probably where he goes to visit Della in jail and she again rejects his help.


    Any additional comments?

    Just shows the human heart's unrelenting search to protect and love even when it is rejected and pushed away. Made me understand that a person's life might not be about their own fulfillment but a gift gladly given to those they leave behind.
