Ellen Bannister is a moderately successful editor with a lackluster life. Several years after the sudden death of her charismatic, well-loved brother, John, she continues to struggle through life, trying to find meaning and purpose in her quiet, unexciting existence. Out of the blue, she receives a mysterious and intimate letter from an elderly apple farmer in upstate New York, prompting her to relive the day she learned of John's death. When a second letter arrives from the farmer, she realizes that she has been given an invitation to engage-an opportunity to test her brother's theories on life. The unexpected friendship that develops between her and the farmer gives her the courage to explore a life she never imagined for herself, and she finds the resilience to take a risk with his fiery-natured son. The premature loss of a brother or sister, a relationship that is expected to be one of the longest of your life, is a loss that is a deeply felt but seldom explored. The Musings of a Mystery Sibling, a love story on many levels, does just that.
