Fifty Acres and a Poodle by Jeanne Marie Laskas

First sentence:

"It's hard to say how a dream forms. "


The place is almost too perfect to be believed, but there it is: a pretty-as-a-picture-postcard farm, with an Amish barn, a chestnut grove, and vistas so beautiful, they take her breath away.

My thoughts:

I enjoyed this memoir of finding a new life on a farm. I liked Laskas' discovery that what looks like a postcard from a distance is a lot more complicated in real life.
