Publisher's summary

Return to Orchard Canyon...

A Business Novel...

Unlike any other business book, Return to Orchard Canyon will get you thinking - and working - toward a future you once thought was just a pipe dream.

This is the story of David Reynolds, his father Ron, and his daughter Meghan. Through these unlikely teachers, you'll discover a path to understanding the plight of modern-day life.

A life you yourself may be living and questioning... So many people are feeling trapped and uncertain as their life unfolds. How exactly did your dreams pass you by? No matter who you are - how old you are or where you are in life - you can find that place of youthful energy and excitement again. It starts by returning to your own Orchard Canyon.

Sometimes the best thing you can do in business and in life is to reinvent yourself. To go forward and embrace something new. Or... return to an earlier time and capture a dream that has eluded you. Sometimes that truth comes to you against your will. From unusual sources. When you least expect it. Destiny happens with or without your consent.

Journey with us to Orchard Canyon, a real place tucked between the red rocks of Sedona, Arizona and the picturesque Oak Creek. Once there, you may discover that what was old is new and what you thought was impossible in your life can really happen. If you let it.

Return to Orchard Canyon is a story that vividly captures the real feelings too many people have today. A sense of working for a paycheck, giving up their lives to make a living, and throwing any dreams they may have had aside as impractical, impossible. A trade-off...for survival. Return to Orchard Canyon dispels the myth that living means sacrificing and replaces it with the reality that our nation was built on the backs of dreamers who took risks. Why not you? Why not today? Why not return to your own Orchard Canyon. Inspiring and actionable, this book will show you the way.

enjoyable story really loved it!

I'm a successful real estate investor with several rental properties in part thanks to the education I received from Ken's other books. I thought I would give this a try. I was really taken in by the story and my heart enjoyed it. it also brings home financial literacy lessons that are great for people to hear for the first time and great for me to hear as many times as I'm lucky to take in.

Great story with great current moral

I have to confess I had to double time it to get to the end as I could not wait to digest the story. It was great and engaging and gave me the encouragement I needed to move forward.

Great Book - Captures the typical rat race

I enjoyed this book in the fact that it relates to the way most of America is today. As I look for motivation to get out of the rat race myself, this definitely helped.

Now...on to doing big things!!

Couldn't put it down

Flowed easily. Didn't want it to end. Thinking of having my grandson read this over the summer, not that he will appreciate that, lol. But it will do him good.

Scary how it mirrors my life

What an amazing book yet scary at the same time. I can relate to how David the main character feels as I’m going through these life events now. Thank you Ken for writing a thoroughly engaging book. 5 stars
