Debut novel of historical fiction...
This novel has been on the best seller list so it caught my attention. The setting of the story is predominently in an orchard located in the Pacific Northwest. Coplin has done significant research into the time period and the setting to create a believable environment. The main character is the caretaker of the orchard; a reclusive man by the name of Talmadge. He has resigned himself to a solitary life of caring for his orchard when his world is changed dramatically by the appearance of two runaway teen girls. Both girls are pregnant and they become part of Talmadge's life. They all have to wrestle with their own demons and their overlapping circumstances.
