The strawberry apple tree by Patterson_ Grace Daniel
Story starting in early 1900's of a young girl and the land she was raised on and how they got there.
Loved hearing of all the different trees that grew fruits.
Reminds me so much of my mother in law as she'd talk about the farm house and all the buildings and farm area.
Very detailed descriptions of the house, potato house LOL
Farming methods were my favorite to hear about.
I received this book from National Library Service for my BARD (Braille Audio Reading Device).
Jancy Wilson is broke, unemployed and now she's without a car. Her plans of going to stay with her cousin in Louisiana go up in smoke when her car catches fire in the tiny town of Pick, Texas. She notices a Help Wanted sign in the window of the quaint Strawberry Hearts Diner. She used to live in Pick when she was a teenager and her memories, along with the diner's famous strawberry tarts, draw her in to the diner and into a job. She only wants to save enough money to get a decent car and continue on her way. Her parents moved from place to place, so Jancy doesn't know what it's like to settle in one place. But as the close-knit community, and an old crush, welcome her with open arms, she's beginning to feel as though this little place in Texas could be home.
The cover caught my eye, it's gorgeous. And though this isn't the typical type of book I go for, it sounded cute and mushy and I thought I'd give it a try. The writing is good. The setting, the characters and the food are all brought to life. Of course it's predictable but that doesn't take away from anything. I do like how Pick is a place where everyone knows everyone and they're supportive of one another and kind, but (and I hate to say this) it also got on my nerves at times.
Thank you to Netgalley and Montlake Romance for a copy of this book.
