Publisher's Summary

Lark Wainright, 23, has nightmares. She used to be fearless. But while overseas for her nonprofit employer, she was kidnapped and held at gunpoint in a dusty shack. Everyone has an opinion about what might have happened to her there, but she's not saying much. She's too consumed by guilt to talk about it.
When her best friend offers her a stay at the Shipley orchard in exchange for help at the farmers' markets, Lark jumps into her little car and heads to Vermont. Unfortunately, the night terrors don't stop. Desperate to keep her fragile state a secret from those who know her best, she relies on the most soft-spoken resident of Orange County, Vermont, to calm her down when her dreams prove too much.
Zachariah, 23, is a survivor of a different kind. It's been three years since he was tossed aside by the polygamist cult out west, the only home he'd ever known. In Vermont, he's found a peaceful place in the bunkhouse at the Shipley's farm. He's good with animals, and he's good with his hands. But getting thrown away by your own people at 19 leaves a mark on a guy. And he doesn't always know what to make of a world where apps and movie quotes are the primary means of communication. Before hitchhiking to Vermont, he'd never watched television. He'd never spoken on the phone.
Actually, there are still a lot of things he's never done.
Zach and Lark slowly grow to trust one another. One night they become even closer than they'd planned. But Lark may still be too broken to trust anyone. When she shoves Zach away, he will have to prove to himself that he's good for more than farm labor.

This was really good

Finally a love story that is more than 'I see her, Im horny... I see him, I'm horny'

It seems like a lot of the 'love stories' ive been reading belong more in the erotica section. This book however, is about more and actually made me feel things emotionally. Its written well and performed well. I like both of the main characters and the support characters. I will read more by this author because many of the other books are pretty much the same lately.

Tough horney woman meets man..clash, bam, drama, bam done.

Another thing I liked about this book, she was able to make the male character loving but in no way feminine or weak. Really well rounded book :)

Perfect story and Perfect Narration! Loved it!

I LOVED THIS BOOK!!!! Zach melted my heart and Lark was so perfectly matched for him! This series has been awesome from book 1. I thought book 1 was my favorite, then book 2 came out and became my favorite now book 3 has blown them both out of the water! Most series don't get better and better with every book but this author is great and out doing her last book every time!

Zach lived a very sheltered life, he is hard working, shy and came out of it all perfectly balanced. Lark lived a normal life until something happened to her that has broken her and made her retreat into her fears. Together these two find a way to be exactly what the other needs. I love that they are so honest with each other. I also love how this family/adopted family all take care of each other, they are all very considerate and caring with each other and it makes my heart happy with every book. I can't wait for the next book but I honestly don't think it ill be able to move Keepsake into 2nd place on my LOVE list for this series.

The narration was perfect. They were both cast perfectly for these characters.
