Award winning writer Jessica Jopp launches her newest work, a rich, lyrical coming-of-age novel titled From the Longing Orchard.

From the Longing Orchard is the story of Sonya Hudson, who has been gripped by phobia since she was thirteen.  The narrative carries us back through her childhood, where she struggles with the family’s frequent moving and with her parents’ increasingly fraught marriage.  But it is the intimacy with another young woman that ultimately offers a path to healing.
