"When Claire Nagy marries Forster Baumsarg, the only son of prominent California citrus ranchers, she knows she's consenting to a life of hard work, long days, and worry-fraught nights. But her love for Forster is so strong, she turns away from her literary education and embraces the life of the ranch, succumbing to its intoxicating rhythms and bounty until her love of the land becomes a part of her. Not even the tragic, senseless death of her son Joshua at kidnappers' hands, her alienation from her two daughters, or the dissolution of her once-devoted marriage can pull her from the ranch she's devoted her life to preserving. But despite having survived the most terrible of tragedies, Claire is about to face her greatest struggle: an illness that threatens not only to rip her from her land but take her very life. And she's chosen a caregiver, the inscrutable, Caribbean-born Minna, who may just be the darkest force of all."--Dust jacket.

This book was very different than what I had imagined. In a way, that was good. However parts were unclear and the ending was very sudden and many of the conflicts had not been resolved. A good read, but too many elements were missing.

A disappointment after I so much enjoyed The Lotus Eaters," her first novel. Plot was disjointed and the caretaker, Minna, was not very credible. Ending too trite compared to the heaviness of the novel.
