Abstract:

"Alden Forth was raised to believe that she could never have true love. So each year, when the peaches ripen on her farm, she takes a lover, only to let him go after a few short weeks. This is until the summer she finds her simple way of life threatened as her grandfather, her last surviving relative, descends into dementia. The arrival of a revivalist minister further upsets the balance in Alden's rural hometown, for the minister's vehemence to save souls has no bounds. Quickly the town's carefully constructed boundaries begin to crumble, turning neighbor against neighbor, sibling against sibling. In the end, Alden must face the truth about her grandfather's disease and the damning accusations of the minister and decide whether love is the thing that will save her or if it will destroy the only life she has ever known."--Page 4 of cover.
