Title. A Walk In The Sun Author. Michelle ZinkExpected publication: May 3rd 2016 by HarperTeen[ goodreads ] [ amazon ]___________________________________________
What I loved about A Walk In The Sun is that it transported me to another place, and I don't mean only to a hard-lived, sun-kissed farm; but to the thrill of being young and in love. It's the story about a girl with the weight of the world on her shoulders. Rose's mom just died and her dad is in such a depression that she has to take over all the chores at their farm, all by herself.
That's how she meets Bodhi, the recently hired hand that's going to help her run the farm this summer.
And that's where the similarities with those Harlequin novels you're thinking about, end because this is not a story about the rich daughter of the boss falling for the working class guy. This is more about finding love when (and where) you didn't expect it.
A Walk In The Sun did a fantastic job at portraying the hardships of loss and death and sadness, but also at reminding you that there are always new beginnings. A story for those who love the hard beautiful farm life, and the hard beautiful romance of first love.
