Cover for Kate Brandes' The Promise of Pierson Orchard.Kirkus: Brandes checks off all the boxes for quality fiction: the characters are well-rounded, the settings, such as the apple orchards, the crisp Silver Creek, and the rocky outcrops, are vividly described,and the plot is well-organized and crisply paced. … An expertly paced, moving exploration of grief and responsibility and an eloquent portrait of a small town struggling with compromise.
