Synopsis: Three generations of women come together at the family orchard to face secrets from the past and learn to believe in the power of hope and forgiveness.In cherry season, anything is possible…
Everything Hope knows about the Orchard House is from the stories of her late mother. So when she arrives at the northern Michigan family estate late one night with a terrible secret and her ten-year-old daughter in tow, she’s not sure if she’ll be welcomed or turned away with a shotgun by the aunt she has never met.
Hope’s aunt, Peg, has lived in the Orchard House all her life, though the property has seen better days. She agrees to take Hope in if, in exchange, Hope helps with the cherry harvest—not exactly Hope’s specialty, but she’s out of options. As Hope works the orchard alongside her aunt, daughter and a kind man she finds increasingly difficult to ignore, a new life begins to blossom. But the mistakes of the past are never far behind, and soon the women will find themselves fighting harder than ever for their family roots and for each other. (Synopsis from Goodreads)
My Thoughts: This was very sweet, cute, and heartwarming. I really enjoyed it. It was a book all about family, secrets, hard times, and how we get through them. It was just a book that made you feel good.
I loved the setting of Orchard House and how it helps heal and help these characters. Hope was really going through some hard times and I liked that she could come to this familial place and find her way back to safety.
I also liked getting Aunt Peg's story. She's stayed at Orchard House and we see how that decision has come to shape her life.
Also, cherries are delicious. There is a cherry tree that grows in my yard and every year, I probably get to enjoy three or four of them. I wish I could eat more, but the birds get them before I do. Fresh cherries are so good though. Reading this story made me crave cherries.
I had a good time reading The Bitter and Sweet of Cherry Season and I'd recommend it to anyone looking for something that will make you feel good. The story and writing were just really comforting and I enjoyed my stay at Orchard House.
