Grinza's Orchard: An Enchanted Tale for young adults by Leonard I. Eckhaus

Teens will absolutely fall in love with Grinza and her strength of character!

Grinza’s Orchard is the story of a whimsical Gypsy girl with incredible strength of character growing up in early 1900’s Romania.

At just five years old Grinza is gifted her own cherry tree, the centerpiece of the story as she grows up dreaming of one day having her own full-blown cherry orchard.

But fast-forward some years and Grinza is overwhelmed!

She’s shirking attention from a local boy while trying to support her parents through one of the harshest winters her village has ever seen -- all while staying focused on achieving her life’s dream of having her own orchard one day.

So Grinza decides to seek help from the witch Auntie Angelina and the Guru Sylvanus, who lives in a cave atop a nearby mountain.

Teens will laugh with Grinza as she tries anything to get rid of her freckles… cry with her as she gives up her greatest possession to save her parents… cheer for her as she reaches her lifelong dream… and feel happy for her as she grows up, gets married and has children of her own.
