The Orchardist by Amanda Coplin
The Orchardist

MulchMaid, January 31, 2013

Coplin has a sure sense of place and beautifully evokes the region and time period she describes. This is one of those books where the setting seems almost a character in itself. The horrifying situation that initially sets the scene gives way to a revealing meditation on the long-term effects and consequences for everyone connected. This spare and eloquent novel was easily my favorite book of 2012.
