Annie Harlow knows how lucky she is. The producer of a popular television cooking show, she loves her handsome husband and the beautiful Los Angeles home they share. And now, she’s pregnant with their first child. But in an instant, her life is shattered. And when Annie awakes from a yearlong coma, she discovers that time isn’t the only thing she’s lost.
Grieving and wounded, Annie retreats to her old family home in Switchback, Vermont, a maple farm generations old. There, surrounded by her free-spirited brother, their divorced mother, and four young nieces and nephews, Annie slowly emerges into a world she left behind years ago: the town where she grew up, the people she knew before, the high-school boyfriend turned judge. And with the discovery of a cookbook her grandmother wrote in the distant past, Annie unearths an age-old mystery that might prove the salvation of the family farm.
I love the cover of Susan Wigg's new novel, Family Tree ~ it's gorgeous! Add in the great book blurb and the fact that it included several things I love (Fall, real maple syrup, baking/cooking) ... I simply couldn't resist this book.
Family Tree has a great plot with lovable characters and I found the underlying message of this story to be inspirational. The alternating chapters of "past" and "now" made the book a bit choppy for me but that didn't diminish my enjoyment of the book.
Family Tree is an engaging and heartwarming story that I definitely enjoyed reading!
Thank you to William Morrow publishing and Edelweiss for the gift of this book in exchange for an honest review.
