Publisher's Summary

There had always been MacKenzies and Colebrooks on the land known as Blue Willow, their histories entangled like the graceful branches of the rare willow tress that thrived there. Artemas Colebrook and Lily MacKenzie shared more than that history, their souls bound to each other and to the land the day the boy held tiny Lily minutes after her birth. But the tragedy that has brought Lily back to the small farm where she spent her childhood has also made Artemas's brothers and sisters her bitter enemies. Torn between family loyalties and their shared sense of destiny, Artemas and Lily must come to terms with a childhood devotion that has turned to bittersweet desire, a passion that could destroy all they have struggled for - even Blue Willow itself.

Secrets, Redemption and Love

Lily and Artemas, two kids thrown together by the strangest of circumstances one Georgia day . . . when he literally "caught" her . . . as she was born, quickly, before any doctor could arrive . . . Lily the daughter of farmers on the farm adjoining the estate of Artemas' parents, (hateful, self-centered, abusive parents, who had frittered away the family fortune) . . . So began the tale of the handsome young prince, who escaped to the woods and farm to visit Lily, his princess every chance he could, promising one day to return for her for good . . . Artemas' parents sent him away to boarding school . . . the the letters began, years and years of letters, all the while, Artemas taking care of all his younger brothers and sisters, and trying to save his own home and the family business . . . and trying to be more, be BETTER than the parents who brought him into the world . . . Blue Willow is a good (long) story, about generational curses, children suffering from the sins of their parents, and learning to heal. The narration could have been better . . . as I started to listen, there was a dreary sound, almost pouting, that I found distracting. I thought the southern accent of Lily was great though. I also could have done without the over descriptive sex scenes, which I was surprised to hear in Deborah Smith's book. Overall, though, the book was very good.
