Summary

After her mother's tragic death, Dani Wilde had no choice but to abandon her dreams. She left Columbia University and returned to her family's Montana cherry farm, intent on being a maternal figure to her brothers. Now the kids are grown, and it's finally her time to fly. Her sights are on New York City, and nothing will stop her - not even an old flame with gorgeous green eyes.

Celebrity photographer Ben Denton hasn't seen Montana in years - and hasn't spoken to Dani since "that night" so long ago. When he discovers he's a dad to a four-year-old - and the child's mother refuses to care for her - Montana and the Wilde farm spring to mind. The orchard is the only place that's ever felt like home, but will the warmth of the Wilde family be enough to help Ben figure out how to be a father?

As the Wilde family gathers for the yearly cherry harvest and Dani struggles to figure out what she really wants in life, she discovers the shocking truth about her own mother - and learns that following her heart may lead her to her dreams after all.

couldn't finish it

the Sing song performance drove me crazy. I might have finished it if the storyline had been better but was pretty sappy.

Read, not listen

Is there anything you would change about this book?

The narrator

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Natalie Ross?

A reader who projects her voice rather than speaking very softly. Why don't the Audible techs catch this?

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

Yes

Any additional comments?

Glad it was from Kindle Unlimited or I would have regretted spending a credit on a narrator who speaks too softly to enjoy.

Boring

The story was anti-climatic and predictable. The issues with the family was very unresolved. There was so much potential with this book and it left me wanting more. The narrator was very bland and unexciting.

Cheesy

It started off okay and then got pretty corny at the end. Danny is super weak and needy at the end also, when she was a much tougher character throughout the rest of the book.

Learning to love despite a mother's mental illness

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I really enjoy Kim Law's work and this didn't disappoint. This book deals with the aftermath of growing up in a household with a mentally ill parent. It shows how every aspect of a child's life is shaped by dealing with the damage that can be done to them.

Have you listened to any of Natalie Ross’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

She is a good narrator. There are a few narrators that are terrible and luckily she isn't one of them. I think she does a good job making you think there is more than one person narrating.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes.

Any additional comments?

As most books, there is a back story to what makes a person become who they are as adults. Unlike most, this one shows the damaging effects that mental illness in a parent can have on a child. While the book is a love story, it gives some insight into overcoming that kind of childhood. I received a free copy of this book for an honest review. However, I bought the audible version as well since I know that I will want all the books in this series and prefer listening to the book.

Good women's fiction with a bit of a sweet romance

I enjoyed the story of Dani and her family. I liked the theme of coming to terms with your past in order to determine your future. The audiobook was well done.

Dani and Ben in beautiful Montana

Ben was the college friend of Dani's brother Gabe. Ben would often visit the cherry grove on Flathead Lake and helped with picking and processing the cherries. Dani decided Ben was the one to gift her virginity to and cared deeply for him. After some time had passed Ben returned to Montana with a four year old girl. She was his daughter he had not known about. Her mother dropped her off as she didn't want her. Dani became like a mother to her. Ben asked Dani to marry him.But she had discovered some unsettling things about her mother that caused her to doubt if she was capable of loving. She told Ben she was moving to New York to work and see if she could find herself. She told him she didn't love him and he should move on. Ben was devastated and angrily gave up on Dani. The question is, how much of what they told each other was true and was anything salvageable.

loved it!

a book about real personal issues and family challenges, with a romance tied to its core. Absolutely loved it kept me hooked. my favorite characters were Ben and Haley and the father-daughter relationship. This author did a fantastic job of laying out the story of each character how they tied together and you could really visualize them. This would make a great movie if they truly stuck to this script.
