“What a wonderful Christian fiction story. Mac has recently lost his wife and is now raising his twin daughters, Pipin and Margil. They have an Apple orchard that Mac operates and the girls help with. The girls are attending an all girl school and one is doing better than the other. When the school teacher comes out to visit about the girl’s grades, how will Mac respond? This was a very good short story that I would recommend for even middle school aged kids. I really enjoyed this book.“

“Ruby Nelson is the new teacher at an all girls school in 1895 Vermont. She enjoys teaching these young girls, even the challenging ones. There are twin girls, Pippin and Margil, in her class that have captured Ruby’s heart. The twins father, Mac Cortland, owns an apple orchard he and his deceased wife started years earlier. Ruby is very interested in the apple orchard as she has worked with apples before moving from New York. She also finds her heart drawn to Mac.
I enjoyed this novella very much. Loved the way Ruby and Mac interacted and the twins were delightful.”
