An incredible story of a woman looking for balance in her life. Balance between the needs of her family and her own personal needs as well as balance between her memories of her deceased mother and the harsh reality of how things really were. To add to the crazy that has become her life is the rekindled feelings she has for Ben Denton. He has recently returned to Montana with his young daughter. While her feelings for Ben are strong, can she give up her dream again??

A wonderfully written story that is incredibly emotional and heartwarming while it takes a look at the emotional turmoil the family of the mentally ill contend with. While only touching on the tip of the iceberg of that issue, it is beautifully done and definitely gets one thinking.

This is a book that needs to be on everyone's must read list. I highly recommend it! ( )

This began with such a sweet, almost, old fashioned feel. Dani Wilde was off at her freshman year at Columbia, but had to return home after the death of their mother to help her dad raise her younger brothers and work at the family cherry orchard business. But soon, Law digs much deeper into the family dynamics and secrets that have been at work during this past decade or so. Dani, with a successful independent marketing firm that includes the family orchard, has at last made plans to return to New York. And the book is a set at that perfect time, when the cherry harvest is set to be picked and Dani's departure will cap off all the year’s hard work. Ben Denton has returned to Montana a successful photographer, but with a 4 year old daughter in tow who has essentially been abandoned by her mother for her father’s ‘turn’ to raise her. Dani's caring nature, for both her niece and Ben's daughter Haley was so heartwarming. This was a much more emotional read than I was expecting and depth of the family’s feelings for one another were rewarding. The publisher provided a free copy of this book for review. ( )

Dani Wilde has lived in a fantasy world for years. Her whole family knows it yet they chose not to tell her because they thought they were protecting her from the truth. This book walks through the stages of repressed memory and what it can do to a persons life both in the unknowing and when the memories come back. Dani goes from having what she thought was a good life to not knowing who she is as a person, how to love herself or love anyone else. As Dani comes to grips with her family's past she is able to rebuild her life in the real world knowing what truly matters and who truly matters. This is a wonderful story, I thoroughly enjoyed it.
