Farm Girl: Girl
or Guy character that lives on a farm at some point...
There are three books that come to mind that I have read and they are all excellent!
"Home to Woefield" by Susan Juby - 5 stars! Home to Woefield is about learning how to take on a challenge, face your fears, and find friendship in the most unlikely of places.
Prudence Burns, a well-intentioned New Yorker full of back-to-the-land
ideals, just inherited Woefield Farm—thirty acres of scrubland,
dilapidated buildings, and one half-sheared sheep. But the bank is about
to foreclose, so Prudence must turn things around fast! Fortunately
she'll have help from Earl, her banjo-playing foreman with a family
secret; Seth, the neighbor who hasn't left the house since a high school
scandal; and Sara Spratt, an eleven-year-old who's looking for a home
for her prize-winning chickens. Read my review - HERE
"Hit by a Farm: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Barn" - by Catherine Friend- 5 stars! Farms have fences. People have boundaries. Mine began crumbling the day I
knelt behind a male sheep, reached between his legs, and squeezed his
testicles. This took place one blustery November day when I joined other
shepherd-wannabees for a class on the basics of raising sheep. I was
there with my partner Melissa, the woman I'd lived with for twelve
years, because we were going to start a farm . When self-confessed
"urban bookworm" Catherine Friend's partner of twelve years decides she
wants to fulfill her lifelong dream of owning a farm, Catherine agrees.
What ensues is a crash course in both living off and with the land that
ultimately allows Catherine to help fulfill Melissa's dreams while not
losing sight of her own. Hit by a Farm is a hilarious recounting of
Catherine and Melissa's trials of "getting back to the land." It is also
a coming-of (middle)-age story of a woman trying to cross the divide
between who she is and who she wants to be, and the story of a couple
who say "goodbye city life" — and learn more than they ever
bargained for about love, land, and yes, sheep sex. I couldn't find my review for this book but it was hilarious! I was in tears from laughing so hard!
"Fifty Acres and a Poodle - A Story of Love, Livestock, and Finding Myself on a Farm" - by Jean Marie Laskas - 4 stars! Jeanne Marie Laskas had dreams of life on a farm that she couldn't get
out of her head. A dream of fleeing her otherwise happy urban life for
fresh air and open space. A dream she would discover was about something
more profound than that. A dream she never ever expected to come true.
Until a hot summer afternoon led to a drive in the country, where a
place that had existed only in her fantasies turned out to be real--and
for sale. Again this book was hilarious! And again I couldn't find my review (I think both those books were on my old blog and got deleted, gasp!) ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Don't forget to enter all of my giveaways!
