At forty-three, Cora Jean thinks her dream of becoming a wife and mother may be a lost cause. She begins to seek another kind of dramatic change in her life. After losing his father and brother in a traffic accident, Woodrow Wilson Morgan III struggles to maintain the family hazelnut orchard by himself. It doesn't help that two housekeepers have come and gone in the six months since his brother's widow left her two incorrigible daughters in Woody's care. When Cora answers Woody's ad for a housekeeper, a four-way battle of wills begins. Will the stubborn orchard dwellers of Woodhaven Acres drive each other nuts? Or will they trust God to guide the change they each so desperately need?

Great story. Loved the characters. Woody was really quiet and set in his ways, but it was because he hated change and loss. He loved too much. Cora was wonderful for him. The theme of the book was trust and hope even when things look their absolute worst. Great message and a great book.
