This story is about a woman named Hush McGillen, who has pulled herself out of poverty to make her family's apple orchard into a big business. She sends her son to Harvard, but after a couple years he comes speeding back to the family farm with a wife in tow. The wife is the daughter of the President of the United States! Now the heroine's life is upside-down. There are secret service agents everywhere she looks and the media is swarming. And the President has sent his nephew, a retired Lt Colonel from the US Army, to escort his daughter home.

This is the second book I've read by this author and I'm having a hard time with her writing style. The first 50 pages were about the heroine's childhood, her marriage and her love for the family farm. Finally the story moved back to the present and started getting interesting. Around page 80 we are introduced to the hero (President's nephew) and then we have 50-60 pages of his background. SNORE. The book is told in first person point-of-view. Half of it is from Hush's POV and the other half is from the nephews. The actual story in the present is pretty good...if she would just tell that story and limit some of the background information to make it interesting. My rating: 3.5 Stars.
