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.

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.

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.

Did not love it, too predictable.

The story line was not my favorite, it was more of a romance than I wanted. I had had enough half way through but I invested so many hours so I kept going.

very good

Liked this book. Think the storyline is great. You can't love someone else until you truly love yourself. That means getting away and finding yourself. It also means recognizing when you need help and getting it! Highly recommend.
