THE RURAL DIARIES Love, Livestock, and Big Life Lessons Down on Mischief Farm

by | Read by Hilarie Burton Morgan

Biography & Memoir • 7.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

Actress Hilarie Burton Morgan narrates her love letter to a town, a farm, and her man with a consistent twang that "One Tree Hill" fans caught only sporadically. Morgan laughs often as she recalls meeting her husband, actor Jeffrey Dean Morgan; their quick start to having a family; and moving to Rhinebeck, New York. Her descriptions are passionate, and she speaks through gritted teeth in an angry moment. Simple pleasures abound with shouts of "The stove is here!" as she remodels their cabin. Morgan bares her soul, and sad moments are included, too. Hard swallows, a breaking voice, and momentary pauses where the recording was stopped and picked back up are heartrending. Most memorable is the sense of love as she expresses the contentment of finding home. A.L.C. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2020]
