The Orchardist


At the turn of the twentieth century, in a remote stretch of Northwest America, a solitary orchardist, Talmadge, tends to apples and apricots as if they were his children. One day, two teenage girls steal his fruit at the market. Feral, scared and very pregnant, they follow Talmadge to his land and form an unlikely attachment to his gentle way of life. But their fragile peace is shattered when armed men arrive in the orchard. In the tragedy that unfolds, Talmadge must fight to save the lives of those he has learned to love while confronting the ghosts of his own troubled past. THE ORCHARDIST is an astonishing and unforgettable epic about a man who disrupts the lonely harmony of his life when he opens his heart and lets the world in. Hide synopsis

well written

by emma17 on Jan 24, 2014

a well written novel with a sad yet ultimately redeeming theme. Taking place at the turn of the 20th century, it captures the life of a solo fruit farmer, two desperate girls, and a few other key figures. Issues of fate, loss, connection and choices. It raises good questions for our book group discussion!
