The new manager's presence is making it difficult. Grady MacKenzie takes an immediate disliking to Josephine and becomes outright cantankerous when she tries talking her family into selling. As she and Grady work side by side in the orchard, she begins to appreciate his devotion and quiet faith. She senses a vulnerability in him that makes her want to delve deeper, but there's no point letting her heart have its way-he's tied to the orchard, and she could never stay there.

A story of love and second chances. She wished she could go back and change things . . . but life doesn't give do-overs. Could anything but good-byes be waiting on the other side of Sweetwater Gap?
Josie Mitchell's sister Laurel thinks she's come home to pitch in with the apple harvest and save the family orchard. Her brother-in-law Nate thinks she's there to talk the overworked, very pregnant Laurel into finally selling the family business. The orchard's new manager Grady Mackenzie just thinks she's trouble with a capital T. They're all right . . . and all wrong. Because no one really knows what drove Josie from home in the first place. Why she's never come home before, even for her own father's funeral. Why she pushes herself so hard . . . and what she's running from. And nobody, not even Josie, is prepared for the surprising new fruit she'll find on her last trip home.

The book was an easy read, but the characters were totally engaging and relatable. I love the way that Ms. Hunter used Josie's pain and hopelessness to paint a fresh picture of Christ's grace, of the possibility to truly work through and overcome a life of guilt. Great book!

Laura D'alessio4 Stars Out Of 5April 7, 2009Laura D'alessioI thoroughly enjoyed this book. I empathized with Josie's secret struggle from her youth which, for so many years, she tried to avoid. It was wonderful that she eventually had to confront her past so the healing process could begin and be free from the bondage she carried for so long that almost killed her. I also loved the characther of Grady. Without giving too much information, it was interesting to read about his struggle with feelings he tried to keep in check due to a failed marriage. He gave excuse after excuse and rationalized with himself at why he wouldn't give himself another chance at love. But the inevitalbe happened and he surrendered to the chance at love again.
