“Sometimes the greatest dream starts with the smallest element. A single cell, joining with another. And then dividing. And just like that, the world changes.”
– Susan Wiggs, Family Tree
#1 New York Times bestselling author Susan Wiggs has brought fans of Kristin Hannah and Debbie Macomber a new, moving story about love and loss. With bits of humour and sorrow, Wiggs delivers a story that spans three generations.
Annie Harlow has the perfect life: she’s the producer of a hit television cooking show, The Key Ingredient, she’s married to a handsome man (who happens to love cooking as much as she does), she owns a beautiful home in LA, and she has just discovered that she is pregnant.
But, in an instant, her entire world is shattered. After spending a year in a coma, Annie discovers that time isn’t the only thing she’s lost.
Annie’s story is enlightening and inspiring. Wiggs delivers a triumph over betrayal, and a story about coming to terms with the past. Start preparing yourself now, because you will soon be feeling every emotion – sad, funny, wise, thoughtful, scary.
Moving back to her family’s maple farm in Switchback, Vermont, Annie must rebuild and come to terms with her memories, steady her feet, and decide whether she wants to jump back into her old life or create something new for herself. Surrounded by her free-spirited brother, their divorced mother, and her nieces and nephews, Annie is emerged into a world that she left years ago – one that she never imagined she would come back to, but also one that she never knew how much she was missing.
Wiggs writes a fast-paced novel that will keep you intrigued. Her storytelling weaves back and forth between Annie’s past and present. As a reader, you’ll learn about Annie’s childhood and memories at the same time and pace that she does, allowing you to connect and grow with her.
Fair warning: this story will make you HUNGRY! And might even inspire you to pull out your apron and do some baking. Like Annie’s fans, I’ll bet your family and friends won’t be complaining!
With the story stretching from Annie’s grandmother, to her mother, to Annie herself, this is a book for the generations.
