In SUNRISE POINT, the charming finale in Robyn
Carr's 2012 Virgin River trilogy, Nora Crane is up before
sunrise, walking miles to Tom Cavanaugh's apple orchard,
grateful for the back–breaking job picking apples so
she can support her young children. Home after serving in
the Marines, Tom's doubtful Nora can measure up to his
seasoned pickers, but as harvest season progresses at
Cavanaugh Orchard, he comes to admire the plucky young mom.
She might not be the kind of woman he'd marry, but darned
if he can concentrate on much else as they work
side–by–side in the orchard.
For her June contest grand prize, Robyn thought it would
be fun to give away these snazzy coral red sunglasses so
the winner will be able to enjoy the sunrises in her life
with extra panache. The sunglasses are by Roberto Cavalli,
who is not only the grandson of a master painter but
designer of sunglasses for many celebrities. Also to the
grand prizewinner—and two
runners–up—Robyn will send a copy of the first
two books in the 2012 trilogy, HIDDEN
SUMMIT and REDWOOD BEND.
Tom Cavanaugh's come
home to Virgin River after serving in the Marines, ready to
take over his family's apple orchard and settle down. He
knows just what the perfect woman will be like: sweet,
decent, maybe a little naive. The marrying kind.
Nothing like Nora Crane. So why can't he keep his eyes off
the striking single mother?
Nora may not have a formal education, but she graduated
with honors from the school of hard knocks. She's been
through tough times and she'll do whatever it takes to
support her family, including helping with harvest time at
the Cavanaugh's orchard. She's always kept a
single–minded focus on staying afloat . . . but
suddenly her thoughts keep drifting back to rugged,
opinionated Tom Cavanaugh.
Both Nora and Tom have their own ideas of what family
means. The folks in Virgin River have them pegged as their
newest couple. Tom and Nora just haven't figured it out
yet . . .
