This was actually quite a surprising read...I don't know what I expected, but after reading the 1st story, & then the next....I was intrigued... I think I thought it was going to be a nice little farm memoir...NOT! Each story has an 'edge' to it. I liked the local, rural, midwestern aspects & can recognize & relate to that 'attitude'.
I am a 'local, rural'....& enjoyed this book!
