A gift for readers, jam lovers or both: acclaimed author Ann Patchett’s dazzling new novel set in Northern Michigan paired with our vibrant, best-selling Sour Cherry Preserves.
Tom Lake: A Novel—Ann Patchett’s beautiful, moving tale of love and growing up is set on a family orchard in Northern Michigan. Three adult daughters come home in the spring of 2020 to help with the cherry harvest and end up examining their own lives and relationships as their mother reveals parts of her past.
American Spoon Sour Cherry Preserves are a personal favorite of Ann Patchett, who fell in love with Northern Michigan on a book tour over twenty years ago. We made this special edition at her behest to celebrate the release of her new novel Tom Lake. It’s the quintessential Sour Cherry Preserves you know and love, filled with brightly tart Michigan Montmorency cherries. Enjoy it on a shady porch spread over thick, buttered toast with a cup of coffee and a great summer read.
