I really enjoyed reading "The Orchard". I was pulled into the story, and even though I'm familiar with "Persuasion" and knew the story line, this still had a fresh feel. I loved the images of the story, loved the writing, loved the characters,loved the experience! So glad this is part of a trilogy I'm not ready to say good bye to the characters.

Audience: Adult (Clean)
Genre: LDS Romance
Length: 245 pgs
Review: All. The. Feels. This book was inspired by the Jane Austen book Persuasion, which, along with Northanger Abbey, is my favorite of Austen's. So I pretty much knew I'd love it. But it also made Alisen's so-so-sweet romance with Derick so difficult because I knew what would happen. I despised her dad and aunt for a while there--all-out hated them. Krista just did a fantastic job of involving me with the characters so much that I was absolutely invested in what was happening to them.

Krista did a great job turning Persuasion into a modern tale while making it uniquely her own. I almost cried twice and I NEVER cried reading Jane's original tale.
