The Empty Spaces Between Us 2. Chronicles from the Orchard

   (8 reviews)
Genres: Romance
Sub-genres: Contemporary Romance

Growing up in a small town, Tyler's life had always felt like one struggle after another.  When he befriends a young father of two, he finds that he may not be the only one who feels lost and alone.  With a little hope and good friends, maybe they can find their way again.

This story takes place in the same place and many of the same characters found in "The Acquittal."

Easily a 5* read on so many levels, just a few: a great storyline, fantastic 3 dimensional characters, deep emotional writing, and the setting, wow, the setting. At times the orchard seems a mystical, magical place where miracles happen, and they do.

Bravo

I thought The Acquittal was amazing. So I was really surprised that this story was even more gripping and moving than The Acquittal. Bravo!

I really enjoyed reading this story as well as "The Acquittal".  You did an amazing job of putting the 2 stories together, and giving us details of events from the first story that weren't explained fully.  I still need to read the next series of shorts, but I do hope you keep on with writing about all these amazing characters.

When I first started reading this story (and so you know, I read the whole thing in two days), I both wondered how it would pull together, and worried that it would repeat much of the first story. But, I was blown away by the depth and grace and passion for these characters that came through in each and every chapter. You absolutely ROCKED this. Thank you for sharing!

With this fantastic story we are catching up with the characters from the Aquittal. We get to meet new characters along the way and learn more about characters like Tyler who minor roles in the Aquittal.

There are few partings and many beginnings, ending in a wedding. Life is definitely progressing in the Orchard for this group of wonderful characters.

I highly recommend reading these two heartwarming and engaging tales.

With The Empty Spaces Between Us, we catch up on the Team from The Acquittal. We also meet some new characters and learn more about characters like Tyler who had minor roles in the first book. All the things we loved about @Jdonley75’s other stories reach new heights here.

Once again, there’s a wedding in the end. There are many beginnings and a few partings. Life goes on in The Orchard!
;–)

You won’t regret reading this heartwarming and engaging tale.

ps Read The Acquittal first, then Staying In the Moment and The Night Before Aaron’s First Christmas in that order before you begin this story. It flows better and you’ll appreciate the story better.
