Publisher's Description

It is 1964, and 14-year-old Jocie Brooke is about to have an unforgettable summer. Her father has found a new love, her hippie sister is about to have a baby, and her aunt is finally pleasureable to live with. But, when a black family from Chicago moves into the quiet hamlet of Holly County, Kentucky, Jocie finds herself befriending a boy that some townspeople shun. Due to the unspoken racial lines in this southern town, the presence of these newcomers sparks a smoldering fire of unrest that will change Holly County--and Jocie--forever. Orchard of Hope, the riveting sequel to The Scent of Lilacs, takes readers along to experience unexpected love, fear, forgiveness, new life, and a deeper understanding of the value of each individual's story.

Author Bio

Ann H. Gabhart has published a number of adult and young adult novels with several different publishers. The author of The Scent of Lilacs, Ann and her husband live a mile from where she was born in the Bluegrass region of Kentucky.


Orchard of Hope, sequel to Scent of Lilacs by Ann H. Gabhart, draws the stories of several characters together through their connections with David Brooke. Gabhart uses themes of triumph over adversity, personal impact on the world, and strength of community to emphasize the message within Orchard of Hope.
David, pastor of Mt. Pleasant Church, editor of the Hollyhill Banner newspaper, and active father of Jocie, is a busy man. His older daughter, Tabitha, returns home pregnant and unwed after a long period of estrangement. Then his main employee at the paper, Wes, is seriously injured in the tornado that destroyed Mt. Pleasant Church's building. And he is also romantically involved with Leigh, a beautiful woman from his congregation. Among his concerns are rebuilding the church after the trauma of the tornado, tending to Wes in his time of need, caring for both of his daughters as a single parent, and maintaining his relationship with Leigh; David is also forced to draw on his strong faith to deal with the issue of racial acceptance. Set in 1964 at the height of the Civil Rights movement and school integration legislation, Orchard of Hope becomes the stage for Mt. Pleasant's reaction to the arrival of the Hearndons – the church's first black congregants.
No character in this book is perfect; each has his or her own flaws and difficult things to work through. However, Gabhart has provided many good examples of right conduct within her novel. Orchard of Hope is, first and foremost, a book about relationships. If the idea of a slow-paced, relationally-based book that deals with universal topics appeals to you, look no further. – Meg D. R.
