Towards the end of this eloquent audiobook, author and narrator Kimball describes the birth of a calf. Her rendering of this scene collapses time, and the event rings so true that the listener feels an intimate connection with the rural life that Kimball so sure-handedly details. Kimball has a pleasing voice and an expressive style that bring the listener into close contact with her farm in Essex, New York. She runs the farm with her larger-than-life husband, Mark. They plow with enormous horses, feed hundreds through their Community Supported Agriculture (CSA), and act as mentors for young farmers who often go on to start their own horse-centered operations. Farm life is hard--and unpredictable. This back-to-the-land memoir enhances Kimball's reputation as a spokeswoman for the revival of rural life. A.D.M.
