WBR: The Orchard


Finally, a book review. I have to apologize, dear readers, for the last – what? Three weeks? I know I can blame at least two of them on a lady named Sandy. You may have heard of her, she’s not too popular in these parts lately.

I’m so happy to be writing a book review, and what a good one I just finished. The Orchard by Theresa Weir is a fabulous memoir about life on an apple farm. Lately, I’ve been getting more and more into the organic lifestyle (not enough to stop eating fudge brownies, mind you) and the perspective from an ex-orchard owner is very interesting. Theresa Weir wrote the book as a love story in the first person. That, too, was an interesting take on a memoir and it was not until I read the About the Author (which I never do – not until the book is over) that I realized it was a memoir. Fun fact: Theresa types her name only once in the novel – can you find it? (I can’t…so please share if you do!).

As an added bonus, The Orchard put me in the fall groove, a season that seemed to skip us East Coaster’s this year. No fall = extra winter is about the worst equation I can think of so I was happy to at least internally feel the introduction to flannel shirts, apple pies, and the harvest moon.

Happy Reading!
