This memoir of thirty-something writer and city dweller Jeanne Laskas reveals her dream to move to the country. It traces the life she pursues on her fifty-acre farm with her psychiatrist boyfriend, Alex. Karen White's conversational narration complements the author's intent to share her life-long desire to work the land. We become privy to the many ordeals that accompany this risk-taking adventure. Meeting new neighbors, pondering farm equipment, land reclamation, and livestock purchases are but a few of the matters contemplated here. From insecure to humorous, White succeeds in sustaining the emotional pace of the story. B.J.L. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/ SEP 01]
