Reviews

In this novel, words take on
the weight of objects, shimmer in images that linger long after the pages are
turned. Jopp, a gifted poet, is also a natural storyteller, and she has created
a world I want to return to again and again. Breathtaking at the level of
language with characters both complicated and alive on the page, From the Longing Orchard will enchant
you while it breaks your heart--a perfect reading experience if
you ask me. I loved it.
--Anne Dyer Stuart, author of What Girls Learn and winner of the Henfield/Transatlantic Prize for
Fiction
