As we celebrate spring—waking from our winter slumber with our senses eager for the smell of fresh cut grass, the warmth of the sun on our back, the blossoms in sweet pastels of pink, purple, and white—pick up a copy of Amanda Coplin’s The Orchardist.
Follow gentle Talmadge as he cares for his apples and apricots in the exquisite Wenatchee Valley of Washington. Talmadge’s simple and peaceful orchard brings two troubled young women to his land. Together, the three complex characters struggle for safety in the rural frontier landscape of the Northwest as they attempt to deal with pasts of fear, abuse, and loss. This book is an ode to the richness of the quiet connections between quiet people.
