The Apple Orchard

Book 4, Flying Solo

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


Flying Solo - single parents, second chances and the power of love...

Abby Mackenzie, a psychologist treating first responders, needs an R & R after a patient’s suicide. Her solution is hard physical work during the day so she can sleep at night.  Picking apples in the fresh air of New England—far away from her home in L.A.—may be just what the doctor ordered. Her aunt’s friends own a thriving orchard and hire her.

The large Templeton family greets her warmly as both a worker and a guest. All except Dr. Jake Templeton, who doesn’t want Abby befriending his unhappy young daughter. He’s suspicious of the mental health profession in general, as well as Abby’s need for what she calls her ‘sabbatical.’ So far, four therapists have failed to help his child deal with her mom’s death two years earlier.

As the apple season progresses, however, the little girl seeks Abby out. Jake watches, worries and tries to protect Stacy.  And finds himself falling for the sensitive and lovely woman hiding from her past.

Will these two shattered hearts complete a journey from sorrow to joy and reclaim their faith in the future?

“These characters will tug at the heartstrings and not let go. The Apple Orchard should find its way onto many keeper shelves. Bravo, Linda Barrett!” Yvonne Herring, New and Used Books

“I loved this book!  The Apple Orchard is first and foremost a love story, but on two levels: romantic and familial. I highly recommend The Apple Orchard by Linda Barrett.” Amy Cunningham, Romance Reviews Today
