Two sisters, Taylor and Victoria, discover an old manuscript of poems tucked away behind a wall on the site of Louisa May Alcott’s Orchard House in Concord, MA. The mysterious woman, who wrote the lines over 150 years ago, shared a strong connection with Alcott. The poet would never know the life-changing influence of her unpublished and very relevant poetry on these two young women’s lives.
Sisterhood, friendships, and belonging; a passion for writing, the cost of betrayal, and the hard work of reconciliation fill the pages of The Orchard House (Tyndale), the latest historical romance novel by Heidi Chiavaroli. A time-slip story, the book covers two distinct periods: the present moment, where we encounter Taylor and Victoria Bennett, and 1865, where we meet the poet Johanna Suhre Bancroft and her friend Louisa May Alcott. Each set of characters experience a similar course in their lives; one leads to tragedy while the other leads to reconciliation.
