A MemoirBook - 2011
The story of a street-smart city girl who must adapt to a new life on an apple farm after she falls in love with Adrian Curtis, the pride of a prominent local family whose lives and orchards are said to be cursed. Married after only three months, young Theresa finds life with Adrian on the farm far more difficult and dangerous than she expected. Rejected by her husband's family as an outsider, she slowly learns about the isolated world of farming even as she falls more deeply in love with her husband, a man she at first hardly knew. As codling moths invade and the increasingly dangerous chemicals the farmers use begin to take a toll on the land and the people who tend it, the couple's fragile love will be sorely tested at Theresa and Adrian fight to defend the ground that has been in his family for generations.--From publisher description.
