A diversion from my eco-lit reading, this book centers on our human perceptions and feelings. Even so, only the naïve reader would fail to recognize in it how connected to and dependent on the natural world we are.

Yes, this is a book about mortality, but only in part. It is as much a book about our joys and frustrations, our caring and depravity, our longing and despair, as we journey through our respective life cycles. It is a down-to-earth, engrossing story that keeps the reader turning pages just as life does. With a basic plot and ample craft, the author has depicted the ageless story of life as we essentially experience it. Reading this book left my old bones weary but content.

My only reservation is that like the orchard in the story, the writing could have benefited from a bit of judicious trimming here and there. Though many writers are prone to dressing up their babies, excess descriptive text can bog down a story and distract the reader.

“I am just a leaf. Just a leaf falling from the tree so that a new bud may grow.”

A great book, but I was slightly disappointed in the end. What happens to Angelene? The author writes of her return visits to the Orchard, but I want more. Where is she visiting from? ( )

I started this book as my plane took off from Chicago (just barely escaping the subzero deep-freeze) and I was four pages from finishing when we landed in Honolulu.

I am not a power reader (easily distracted) but this novel grabbed me right from the beginning. It was so good, that I didn’t even take full advantage of the complimentary wine (only three glasses of Chardonnay).

Talmadge is a great character as are the three women who are part of his “family.”

I felt transported to this turn of the century life in the Pacific northwest. The Orchardist is a great book.

I wasn't sure about this book as I started reading, but it became oddly compelling as I continued to read, and before I knew it, I was drawn in completely. Many different aspects of the characters' lives are explored, making this interesting on several different levels. I had to get used to the way conversations were written, and there was a small amount of confusion, but it didn't take long to accept it. I particularly like reading about the different relationships between Della, Angelene, and Talmadge. The human spirit is strong, but sometimes severe situations make people handle it when ways of which we may not approve or understand. I appreciate that this novel explored that. ( )

Hard book to rate - loved the writing, the descriptions succinct enough to clearly visualize, the concept of a man caring so much for the girls that drop into his life - hated the ending, the lack of really knowing what Angeline ends up doing with her life, Cree and his strange end of story wanting a family after his way of life. Talmadge a wonderful caring man who never finds the true truth about his sister, never completely helps Della, ending makes you wonder how his raising Angeline helped or hindered her. True friend was Caroline Middey to all. ( )

And that was the point of children, thought Caroline Middey: to bind us to the earth and to the present, to distract us from death.  A distraction dressed as a blessing: but dressed so well, and so truly, that it became a blessing.  Or maybe it was the other way around: a blessing first, before a distraction.
