-- The Lemon Orchard In the five years since Julia last visited her aunt and uncle?s home in Malibu, her life has been turned upside down by her daughter?s death. She expects to find nothing more than peace and solitude as she house-sits with only her dog, Bonnie, for company. But she finds herself drawn to the handsome man who oversees the lemon orchard. Roberto expertly tends the trees, using the money to support his extended Mexican family. What connection could these two people share? The answer comes as Roberto reveals the heartbreaking story of his own loss?a pain Julia knows all too well, but for one striking difference: Roberto?s daughter was lost but never found. And despite the odds he cannot bear to give up hope. Set in the sea and citrus-scented air of the breathtaking Santa Monica Mountains, The Lemon Orchard.

I learned a lot about the migrant Mexican workers who travel to the USA to make a better life for themselves and their families. This book talks too about the heartaches they endure and the families they leave behind in order to try and make a decent living.

Cleverly written, divided per characters. Still the story flows well. Compelling look on the challenges and sorrows of Mexico/USA border immigration.

very fast read, an okay story. I was disappointed as this was not nearly as good as any of the other Luanne Rice books I have read in the past. She has always been one of my favorite authors.
