This story is a gem representing the delightful stories from the Indian subcontinent which capture the simple essence of everyday life in rural/urban India. The simple pleasures of life indicate a time gone by before the advent of cellphones and Facebook, a time which almost stood still, a time where children could revel in the rain, make paper boats and race them down a drain, play marbles, and generally pass time. The once idyllic life almost seems too slow to bear and hence is fascinating to watch unfurl as we hear the story. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Nigel Barks Field.

For the first eight years of her life, an unusual apple orchard in Vermont is Sorrow Lovegood´s whole world. The land has been passed down through generations of brave, resilient women, and while their offbeat habits may be ridiculed by other townspeople - especially their neighbors, the Abrams family - Sorrow and her family take pride in its odd history. Then, one winter night, an unthinkable tragedy changes everything. In the aftermath, Sorrow is sent to Miami to live with her father, away from the only home she´s ever known. Now 16, Sorrow´s memories of her life in Vermont are maddeningly hazy. She returns to the orchard for the summer, determined to learn more about her troubled childhood and the family she left eight years ago.
