The ORCHARDIST – Amanda Coplin
Review by Rory C. Keel
William Talmage grows up as a gentle recluse caring for the family orchard after the death of his mother. Haunted by the mysterious disappearance of his sister, his heart of compassion is kindled when he befriends two feral girls stealing from his orchard. Talmage sets out to aid both girls who are pregnant and hungry and to redeem them from the opium controlled brothel owner named Michaelson.
The book is well written and picturesque with the details of the Pacific North West in the late 1800’s. This book is worth a read and a re-read!
