I really enjoyed this book. I read it slowly, savoring the author's lovely words and the delightful stories about the animals on the farm. If you're an animal lover, I think you'll love this book too. There are so many sweet, funny, quirky animal stories here: the fox that likes to join the pigs for dinner, the goose that falls in love with Luanne's husband, and the hens who school the rooster were some of my favorites. Frezon also does an excellent job weaving tension throughout this true story ...more

I am certain that you have had struggles in your own life that your love of animals helped to see you through. You will find yourself nodding your head, smiling and even shedding a tear as you relate Luanne’s tale of faith and the healing that SHE received from animals to your own life. You will love this story and appreciate how as Peggy states, “Luanne’s story shares how pets can love, comfort and teach us as we take our own journey through life.”

Luanne’s arduous journey will remind you, as I

Such a sweet, tender story. I really liked and respected Luanne. Her story can teach us so much. She doesn't see herself as brave, but she is. She has spunk, pioneer spirit, and a lovely, nurturing way with all her critters.

Such great imagery -- like the baby raccoons perched in the hen house. Peggy Frezon spins the story in a way that really makes you feel like you are there in the moment with Luanne, her family, and all of those wonderful animals who share in their life.

A heartwarming (easy read) tale of a woman's journey from childhood to adulthood and her relationship with animals, not always being what she expects. From her very first stray dog to building her own little farm in the woods of Vermont, the book entertains with cute and touching anecdotes about her struggles with life, her dream of building this farm and how her relationships with animals give her the strength and a greater understanding to persevere.

She and her husband now rescue senior golden retrievers, and are currently in training (they are the ones needing the training. Their dog is smarter than that!) ...more
