Disappointing
1 stars By Amy, Oct 22 2015
Lynn Austin's original book was fantastic. It had relatable characters, a fascinating storyline, a strong Christian message, and it was filled with intrigue and humour as well as moments of poignant seriousness. Sadly, this film does not do the book justice in the least. It was very slow-paced, the characters were constantly moping and being overly dramatic, and the storyline was reshaped to the point where it lost the majority of its interest and all of its humour. The Christian message was also watered down. My friends and I cringed our way through the whole process and almost considered turning it off completely - something I've never done while watching a Christian film before. In short, I was severely disappointed and wish I hadn't wasted my money.

Essential Fiction Reading
5 stars By Victoria, Jun 04 2014
Fabulous literary novel. 
This novel contains many twists and turns which are unpredictable. 
This ultimately causes are truly interesting novel that was quite refreshing from the cookie cut normal fiction romance. 
I rate this novel a 55 and would highly recommend as a gift or for yourself.

Wonderful Escape!
5 stars By Lisa, Nov 14 2013
This novel had great character development.  Some of the Chrisitan Fiction I've read recently has been overly predictable but this plot, laden with a few twists, kept me guessing till the end.  Lynn Austin swept me back to the 1930s with the romantic beauty of life on an orchard - but grounded me with a hit of reality as hidden secrets surfaced through the plot.  Loved it.

Refreshing
3 stars By Margot , Dec 18 2012
This is a lovely movie, a story of hardship, hard work and hard hearts softened by love. Its the story of perseverance when all hope seems gone, and the story of how a community can work together to help restore that hope, despite the stubborn independence of Eliza, the young widow trying to beat the bank to save the family orchard. Lovely to see a mature Shirley Jones after all these years. And its always refreshing to have everything work out in the end. All in all a worthwhile and enjoyable evening spent.

An uplifting read
5 stars By Laura, Apr 28 2008
I loved this book!
It's the story of a young widow, and her 3 children, who find unexpected friendship and romance in the midst of hardship. It's set in rural America, a hundred or so years ago.
The characters are beautifully realised; people you'd like to meet yourself. I especially liked Aunt Batty, the old woman who becomes Eliza's dearest friend.
There's also a mystery running throughout; who is the mysterious drifter, and what did he have to do with Eliza's late husband?
This is a book I could easily read again. Highly recommended.
