About the book
The Taste of Apple Seeds tells the story of young librarian Iris Berger. When Iris’s grandmother dies, Iris is surprised to learn that she has inherited the house–a house she has not been in since her cousin Rosmarie’s tragic death fifteen years before. But from her first step inside, the painful memories—and family secrets—instantly come flooding back. Allowing herself a week-long stay, she’ll ultimately have to decide this family treasure’s fate: keep it or sell it. As Iris reminisces, she comes to realize the choice won’t be so simple, for her grandmother’s cottage is an enchanting place where currant jam tastes of tears, sparks fly from fingertips, love’s embrace makes apple trees blossom, and the darkest family secrets never stay buried. While trying to remember—and forget—Iris chances upon an old childhood friend who might just be the answer she is looking for.
Readers will fall under the spell of The Taste of Apple Seeds and discover the amazing vulnerability and resilience of the human spirit. Designed to melt the heart–with hints of magical realism, seamless flashbacks and its narrative take on three generations of women and love–it’s one that will be surely passed down…
