Publisher's Summary

After her mother's tragic death, Dani Wilde had no choice but to abandon her dreams. She left Columbia University and returned to her family's Montana cherry farm, intent on being a maternal figure to her brothers. Now the kids are grown, and it's finally her time to fly. Her sights are on New York City, and nothing will stop her - not even an old flame with gorgeous green eyes.

Celebrity photographer Ben Denton hasn't seen Montana in years - and hasn't spoken to Dani since "that night" so long ago. When he discovers he's a dad to a four-year-old - and the child's mother refuses to care for her - Montana and the Wilde farm spring to mind. The orchard is the only place that's ever felt like home, but will the warmth of the Wilde family be enough to help Ben figure out how to be a father?

As the Wilde family gathers for the yearly cherry harvest and Dani struggles to figure out what she really wants in life, she discovers the shocking truth about her own mother - and learns that following her heart may lead her to her dreams after all.

couldn't finish it

the Sing song performance drove me crazy. I might have finished it if the storyline had been better but was pretty sappy.

Read, not listen

Is there anything you would change about this book?

The narrator

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Natalie Ross?

A reader who projects her voice rather than speaking very softly. Why don't the Audible techs catch this?

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

Yes

Any additional comments?

Glad it was from Kindle Unlimited or I would have regretted spending a credit on a narrator who speaks too softly to enjoy.

Great story

This was not a typical romance story. There was a second story about the family that brought tears to my eyes more than once. The only thing that I didn't like was when the narrator did the different childrens voices.

Boring

The story was anti-climatic and predictable. The issues with the family was very unresolved. There was so much potential with this book and it left me wanting more. The narrator was very bland and unexciting.

Cheesy

It started off okay and then got pretty corny at the end. Danny is super weak and needy at the end also, when she was a much tougher character throughout the rest of the book.

Learning to love despite a mother's mental illness

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I really enjoy Kim Law's work and this didn't disappoint. This book deals with the aftermath of growing up in a household with a mentally ill parent. It shows how every aspect of a child's life is shaped by dealing with the damage that can be done to them.

Have you listened to any of Natalie Ross’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

She is a good narrator. There are a few narrators that are terrible and luckily she isn't one of them. I think she does a good job making you think there is more than one person narrating.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes.

Any additional comments?

As most books, there is a back story to what makes a person become who they are as adults. Unlike most, this one shows the damaging effects that mental illness in a parent can have on a child. While the book is a love story, it gives some insight into overcoming that kind of childhood. I received a free copy of this book for an honest review. However, I bought the audible version as well since I know that I will want all the books in this series and prefer listening to the book.

Kindle Unlimited Listen

This is the first book I've read/listened to by Kim Law. It was a little difficult to listen to because it was so depressing to me. It's definitely a difficult subject. The two young girls are the bright spot. I love how they were cared for by most the adults. I'm trying to decide if I want to continue the series.

Natalie Ross was a very good narrator. She had quite a few male voices in addition to the female ones. They were well done. She's easy to listen to as well.

*I listened to this book through the Kindle Unlimited program.

I can’t get past the 1st chapter

The narrator is so mundane in her speech I was falling asleep rather than listening,

Excellent!

This was one of the most realistic, heartbreaking, interesting, and satisfying stories I've ever listened to or read.
I adored the vulnerability that revealed itself in Dani and in Ben...heck, in everybody.


TINY SPOILER ALERT


Maaaaan. When he asked her "Do you not love me?" and she answered with, "I don't even love myself." I felt that to my soul.
I'm so glad this book ended the way it did.
I'm getting the next one now.

Fun book

Interesting story line. Listened through Audible. The narrators voice was perfect for this tale. The dynamics of story hit home. Worth reading.
