The Orchard: A Memoir by Adele Crockett Robertson

The Orchardis an exquisitely beautiful and poignant memoir of a young womans single-handed struggle to save her New England farm in the depths of the Great Depression. Recently discovered by the authors daughter, it tells the story of Adele Kitty Robertson, young and energetic, but unprepared by her Radcliffe education for the rigors of apple farming in those bitter times. Alone at the end of a country road, with only a Great Dane for company, plagued by debts, broken machinery, and killing frosts, Kitty revives the old orchard after years of neglect. Every day is a struggle, but every day she is also rewarded by the beauty of the world and the unexpected kindness of neighbors and hired workers. Animated by quiet courage and simple goodness,The Orchardstands as a deeply moving celebration of decency and beauty in the midst of grim prospects and crushing poverty.
