Molly Fader’s latest novel, The Bitter and Sweet of Cherry Season, brings together three different generations of women, one Orchard, and a litany of secrets that must be dealt with. If I’m honest, I picked it up because it felt like it had similar vibes to Practical Magic, and I’ve been craving something like that for quite some time.

The Orchard House has been the center of many tales throughout Hope’s life. Yet it wasn’t until she carried her daughter and a dark secret that she made her way there. Here, she’s hoping to find a safe haven for her and her daughter.

Luckily for Hope, her aunt Peg requires some extra hands on the Orchard, so she’s not going to be turning them away anytime soon.

“They were little things, but it was always the little things that rubbed a person raw. That hurt the most.”

The twisting of secrets in The Bitter and Sweet of Cherry Season is more than enough to keep any reader invested. There’s so much to unfold within these pages. Not just the secrets of generations but the secrets of the Orchard itself.

To be blunt: I was fascinated by this tale and every little detail within. I couldn’t put it down, and yet I found myself disappointed when I finally reached the end. Apparently, I wasn’t ready to say goodbye to these three ladies.

This is the first novel I’ve read by Molly Fader, but I have to say that I am extremely impressed by what I have found here. Clearly, I’m going to have to go through her backlog sometime soon (whenever I can make the time or find a spot in my TBR pile, that is).

Thanks to Graydon House and #NetGalley for making this book available for review. All opinions expressed are my own.
