Publisher's Summary

From the international best-selling author of The Lightkeeper’s Wife comes another compelling and uplifting novel set in remote Tasmania.

Sixteen-year-old Mikaela has grown up isolated and home-schooled on an orchard in Tasmania, until an unexpected event shatters her family. Eighteen months later, she and her older brother Kurt are running a small business in a timber town. Miki longs to make connections and spend more time in her beloved forest, but she is kept a virtual prisoner by Kurt, who leads a secret life of his own.

When Miki meets Leon, another outsider, things slowly begin to change. But the power to stand up for yourself must come from within. And Miki has to fight to uncover the truth of her past and discover her strength and spirit.

Set in the old-growth eucalypt forests and vast rugged mountains of southern Tasmania, The Orchardist's Daughter is an uplifting story about friendship, resilience and finding the courage to break free.

Fantastic story

Loved this novel from start to finish. So many lives twisted together to form the storyline.
Beautiful execution by the narrator.
