Publisher's Summary

Focused and unassuming fifth generation cider-maker Sanna Lund has one desire: to live a simple, quiet life on her family's apple orchard in Door County, Wisconsin. Although her business is struggling, Sanna remains fiercely devoted to the orchard, despite her brother's attempts to convince their aging father to sell the land.

Single dad Isaac Banks has spent years trying to shield his son, Sebastian, from his troubled mother. Fleeing heartbreak at home, Isaac packed up their lives and the two headed out on an adventure, driving across the country. Chance - or fate - led them straight to Sanna's orchard.

Isaac's helping hands are much appreciated at the apple farm, even more when Sanna's father is injured in an accident. As Sanna's formerly simple life becomes increasingly complicated, she finds solace in unexpected places - friendship with young Sebastian and something more deliciously complex with Isaac - until an outside threat infiltrates the farm.

From the warm and funny Amy E. Reichert, The Simplicity of Cider is a charming love story with a touch of magic, perfect for fans of Sarah Addison Allen and Gayle Forman.

A Multi-category Joy

With lush descriptions and an intricate plot, Amy Reacher's Simplicity of Cider is a special treat for hard apple cider aficionados who love strong female lead characters in their women's fiction, and authentic evocations of the charms of Midwest orchard country. Everyone else will love it too!
