For the first eight years of her life, an unusual apple orchard in Vermont is Sorrow Lovegood's whole world. The land has been passed down through generations of brave, resilient women, and while their offbeat habits may be ridiculed by other townspeople - especially their neighbors, the Abrams family - Sorrow and her family take pride in its odd history.
Then, one winter night, an unthinkable tragedy changes everything. In the aftermath, Sorrow is sent to Miami to live with her father, away from the only home she's ever known.
Now 16, Sorrow's memories of her life in Vermont are maddeningly hazy. She returns to the orchard for the summer, determined to learn more about her troubled childhood and the family she left eight years ago. But it soon becomes clear that some of her questions have difficult - even dangerous - answers. And there may be a price to pay for asking.

Beautiful lush storytelling
Kali Wallace provides some of the best writing in this slow moving generational story of a story of a family of women living off a parcel of land in Vermont. This story is hauntingly tragic and epic and deep. This will go in my favourite pile along with To Kill a Mockingbird amd The Orchardist.
