"As far as Gretchen Brink is concerned the tornado that just ripped through her land has nothing on the storms of a different sort happening all around her. Her grown daughter, Abby, has returned home with news that she's pregnant and no, she's not sure if she's going to marry the father or not. A man with no memory was dropped practically on her doorstep. And the not so little white lie she's been telling for years is about to catch up with her. Abby is sure that the mysterious man is her long-lost father Sam, who has finally returned just when she needs him most. As Abby, Gretchen, and Sam get closer, the lie Gretchen told all those years ago begins to haunt her. When her secrets come out, and Sam's past is finally revealed, will it tear down this fragile life they've built-or will the truth bring them all closer together?"--… (mais)

This book reminded me of Sarah Addison Allen. A magical tale that carries you away with a smile on your face. I was pleasantly surprised. I would love to read more books by this author! ( )

I'm usually a big fan of Susan McBride. This one was a little hard to get into, thought. As much as I wanted to love it, it was hard for me to finish. ( )

What one of us would not like a man whose arrival was heralded by lightning? Although this book has a somewhat predictable plot, the characters are unique, a pair of blind twins with different talents in compensation, a woman with a big secret and her daughter. This was a fun read, somewhat magical in places, with a family value type of lesson, about hope and love. This will appeal to readers who like Sarah Addison Allen and her whimsical stories. ( )

I so enjoyed this book. I love the magical aspects, the whole life cycle of the walnut grove, the characters, everything. This author reminds me of Sarah Addison Allen. I found the question of truth to be quite intersting. Is it better to lie or to be blunt and truthful even though it may be hurtful? This is the theme that runs throughout the story. This story is so heartwarming and genuine. I felt these people could be my neighbors. Each character had such an interesting story and woven together created a wonderful book. Is it predictable, yes, but the characters are so great and the stories getting to that ending are well worth the read. ( )

This spell binding book of family secrets and lost loved ones, combines rural common sense and charming magic. This novel has fresh, believable characters that burst into life from the first page. Spellbinding and hard to put down. ( )

"Seamlessly toggling between decades, McBride delivers a poignant page-turner with flawed but lovable characters."
