But there's no disguising the fact that the story unfolds in smug, self-congratulatory language peppered with strings of questions which fail to animate the prose...and wooden dialogue between Iris and her childhood friend Max, now a local lawyer.

Synopsis

"When Iris unexpectedly inherits her grandmother's house in the country, she also inherits the painful memories that live there. Iris gives herself a one-week stay at the old house, after which she'll make a decision: keep it, or sell it. The choice is not so simple, though, for her grandmother's cottage is an enchanting place where currant jam tastes of tears, sparks fly from fingertips, love's embrace makes apple trees blossom, and the darkest family secrets never stay buried. As Iris moves in and out of the flicker between remembrance and forgetting, she chances upon a forgotten childhood friend who could become more. The Taste of Apple Seeds is is a bittersweet story of heartbreak and hope passed down through the generations"--
