The Orchard’s Descendant

Feeling she has little choice, Maggie leaves her beloved community for a century-old farmhouse in the hills of Northern California. She is hoping to grow some roots. What she finds is a dilapidated house, a barn she can't bring herself to go into and one family's tragedy.

A daughter sent away and never heard from again, a father dead in a snowstorm, and Daniel, the angry brother who has lived with the pain of it all for more than 70 years. Will Maggie be able to find the home she has been longing for in the house above the orchard? Will she be the key to a brother's redemption?


A tale of love, deceit and mystery, The Orchard's Descendant explores the idea of what it means to create "home".
