Coming back to Virgin River via the 19th book in the series, Sunrise Point, was like coming home. It's almost like the opening theme of Cheers - where everybody knows your name (and your business). Nora Crane has had a very tough life and ended up dumped unceremoniously in Virgin River by her scumbag ex. She must figure out a way to make a living for herself and her two young daughters, Berry and Fay. Enter a seasonal job at Cavanaugh's apple orchard. Nora's never picked apples in her life, but she's willing to work hard. At first she's turned away, but Maxie Cavanaugh hires her on when her grandson Tom wouldn't. At the same time, Nora's past is catching up with her...

I read Sunrise Point in essentially one sitting. I love the characters and the genteel charm of Virgin River. Nora reminds me a lot of someone very close to me and I admire her strength of character and her determination. I absolutely hated Darla, the widow of a Marine buddy of Tom's. She was just not what Tom or anyone in Virgin River needed. Sunrise Point is a delicate and delectable romance, filled with great characters in a wonderful town. I sometimes wish I lived in a place like Virgin River. It just goes to show - what you think you want is not always what you truly need.
