A really well written story of family connections and emotions. Jane gave up a daughter for adoption when she was young and comes back to her home town years later. Dylan has shattering memories from his life as a federal agent and he comes home to find peace working his family's apple orchard.

Again, Luanne Rice takes topics we've read about a million times before and some how still manages to hold our interest. And she never gives us a cheesy ending, anything forced or fake. It's as real as real life can get. I'd recommend this book for anyone who enjoys romance or family stories. The story keeps you interested and the characters endear themselves to you.

The general storyline is interesting enough- The Porter sisters were deserted by their father at a young age and now their once-strong and independent mother is old and ill and decisions need to be made about her future care. One sister, Jane, has a tremendous secret that she feels is ready to be revealed (thats why she returns to her hometown) even though it upsets her ill mother and caretaking sister to think about this secret becoming public after so many years. The story (and secret) involves a forbidden romance and I found myself skimming through chapters because of its predictability. The end is satisfying, as I someone knew it would be, but the writing lacks depth and in the end I felt as though Id read a script for a soap opera.
