The Last of the Apple Blossom

What a beautiful, all encompassing novel. I cannot believe it is a debut, it was wonderful x I loved everything about it; the trials and tribulations of running an apple orchard, the incredible amount of things that can go wrong for a crop…just how much blood, sweat and tears go into running the orchard. It was beautiful to read x I found the blatant sexism really confronting, of course, there were so many times I wanted to step in and slap Catherine’s father, and the male teacher expecting cups of tea…for me it really reinforced how far we have come in equality. There was just so much connection here, between Catherine and Peter and later on Charlie, Annie and Catherine’s friendship was so intricately explored. I loved Catherine and Mark…ahhh so satisfying x I loved every single page of this novel and CANNOT WAIT to read whatever Mary-Lou Stephens writes next
