This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
First published in 1985 by William Morrow, The Cider House Rules is John Irving's sixth novel. Set in rural Maine in the first half of the twentieth century, it tells the story of Dr. Wilbur Larch—saint and obstetrician, founder and director of the orphanage in the town of St. Cloud's, ether addict and abortionist. It is also the story of Dr. Larch's favorite orphan, Homer Wells, who is never adopted.
As with most books, much better than the movie!
Cider House Rules
My favorite book of all time. I am not a big fan of John Irving, for a variety of reasons. But this book is my all time favorite.
