Blurb (from Goodreads):
In this Bridges of Madison County for teens, Michelle Zink weaves a magnetic tale about summer love that stays with you long after the seasons change.
Rose Darrow never wanted to spend her life working on her family’s farm. But when her family is rocked by an unexpected tragedy she has no choice but to put her plans for the future—and dreams of escaping her small town—on hold.
Bodhi Lowell left home as a kid and hasn’t looked back. Years of working farm jobs has given him the one thing he wants most: freedom to travel without answering to anyone. He’s already looking past his job at Darrow Farm and plans on leaving in September—until he meets Rose.
Neither Rose nor Bodhi can deny the sparks flying between them, but with the end of summer looming, they must decide if it is better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all....
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
This was a YA contemporary romance about a girl who had recently lost her mother.
Rose was quite a strong character, and it was admirable the way she had taken over the farm after her mother’s death.
The storyline in this was mainly about the romance, and we did get a bit of a low-key love triangle with the boy next door having feelings for Rose also. The pace in this was about right, and it was a nice easy read.
The ending to this was okay, and things seemed to work out pretty well.
