Annie enjoys working at the fruit stand despite the occasional hazards. She is given an opportunity to spend some time in the home of her Grandfather Moses in Apple Ridge. Annie helps fill the time away by working at Zooks serving meals.
Aden feels a responsibility for the care of his brother Roman, the two forming a close bond. Aden while working on a generator at Zooks catches the eye of Annie. Annie is determined to break the silence with Aden despite the Old Order Mennonite and Old Order Amish rules and restictions which separate them.
During a time of turmoil Annie decides that Apple Ridge is just what she needed. In the middle of blooming cherry trees can she find peace and love?
A novella of betrayal, heartache, acceptance and romance the reader peers into the lives of these interesting and well developed characters. I loved Roman's and Aden's characters, so down to earth. A different storyline with familiar concepts kept me reading and entertained. Dialogue, description and scenery works with no dull parts. I found the overall message inspiring and would recommend this book to others. I received this book for free from Waterbrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review.
