Book Review: The Orchardist

What an astonishing book. I considered and passed by this novel several times before giving it a chance, and I’m glad I did.
This is a quiet tale…not in terms of plot but in how the author presents the different lives. There is a lot of upheaval for the individuals, and each has to work out their relationships with each other in their self-made family and with others. But the voice and how each of the events and relationships are presented is paced in a way that makes you feel the lives they are leading.
Really an exceptional experience.
