NEW PAPERBACK EDITION AVAILABLE NOW FROM JO FLETCHER BOOKS!
Nestled on the coast of Scotland, Appleton was once famous for its apples. Now, though the orchards are long gone, locals still dream of the towns glory days, when an Apple Queen was crowned at the annual fair and good luck seemed a way of life. And outsiders are still drawn to the charming village, including three very different American women.
Enchanted by Appletons famously ornate, gold-domed library, divorcée Kathleen Mullaroy has left her cosmopolitan job to start anew as the towns head librarian. Widowed Nell Westray hopes for a quiet life of gardening in the place where she and her husband spent their happiest moments. And young Ashley Kaldis has come to find her roots, and learns that the towns fortunes turned when her grandmother was crowned Apple Queenthen mysteriously disappeared.
(from p 66)
"It was her fault, the Apple Queen. If she'd married her man, everything would have gone on as it always had. But she went away. They both did--only not together as they were meant to. And ever since, nothing's gone right with the town."
