Praise for THE SIMPLICITY OF CIDER
"Reichert captures the food, relationships, and unique settings of the Midwest at their best. I was absolutely charmed by The Simplicity of Cider." (J. Ryan Stradal, New York Times bestselling author of Kitchens of the Great Midwest)
"Reichert has once again delivered a sure fire hit with The Simplicity of Cider. It's charming, heartwarming and magical." (Nina Bocci, USA Today bestselling author of Roman Crazy)
"The Simplicity of Cider will quench your thirst for a smart, poignant tale of people who find their true selves, and in the process each other, in the most unexpected places. A sparkling tale of creating family where you need it, and learning to let go of the things that hold you back from your best life." (Stacey Ballis, author of Wedding Girl and Recipe for Disaster)
"The Simplicity of Cider is the perfect blend of sweet, smart and immensely satisfying. If foodie fiction is a thing, Amy Reichert is the grand master." (Colleen Oakley, author of Close Enough to Touch)
"Deep family secrets and undeniable attraction collide in this wonderfully atmospheric and heartwarming tale of a father trying to save his son, a woman trying to save her family's land, and the way that the two of them might just save each other if they can stop the past from destroying their future. As deliciously satisfying as a crisp glass of the cider Amy E. Reichert so masterfully describes." (Kristin Harmel, international bestselling author of The Sweetness of Forgetting, The Life Intended, and When We Meet Again)
"With a dreamy setting and lovable characters, The Simplicity of Cider is so good you can practically taste it. Read it in the shade of an apple tree, near a perfectly dry bottle of cider, or wherever--just read it!" (Kelly Harms, author of The Good Luck Girls of Shipwreck Lane)
"Reichert's writing is like the song in your heart, at once lilting and joyous yet aching and real. The Simplicity of Cider is a comforting and layered read with a cast of well-developed characters who feel both unique and authentic, and a setting that will have you yearning for a trip to Door County and a mug of cider." (Sonali Dev, author of A Change of Heart)
"The Simplicity of Cider is a novel as delicious as cider and as enchanting as magic--both of which are found in measured doses throughout the book. Amy Reichert has a way of writing about complicated relationships and seemingly impossible situations with a strong thread of hope that is both uplifting and substantive. This is a lovely book, meant to be savored." (Karen White, New York Times bestselling author of The Guests on South Battery)
"Brimming with hilarity, magic, and heartwarming unexpected relationships, The Simplicity of Cider is the ultimate ode to celebrating the dazzling splendor in small things. This will give you more fuzzy feelings than you can count.” (Redbook)
“A lot charming and a little bit magical, Reichert’s latest is warm and poignant and romantic… between the humor and the heart lies a subplot of family and setting yourself free — framed beautifully by a story that won’t let go.” (RT Book Reviews (4 star review))

You have a man Issac, who takes his son on a trip to give him one last summer before he gives him devastated news. They stumble on this orchard that is run by a man Einars and his daughter Sanna. Sanna is a different type of women. She is tall, straight forward and not your typical flowery heroine. But the way Sanna loves her land that has been in her family for decades is beautiful and will have you loving and wishing you could walk and hang out at the orchards.
This story had so many layers, there was a little mystery, romance, heartbreak, healing. It really had everything and not to mention the way the author made the details of this orchard and the trees and the smells make you feel like you had been vacationing there an not just reading.
This book also wet my taste and smell. I wanted to taste what they grow. I wanted to be at the table when the items were cooked and taste and drink the what they land produces.
This book was such a great story for everyone! This one is a #MustRead
