Charming musings from a back-to-the-lander. She's turned into a real and true farmer, but has kept her sensibilities. I could be friends with her. ( )
  2wonderY | May 18, 2017 |
A woman becomes farmer & shepherd, working chiefly alone in a 35 room house with various outbuildings including a barn (its loft collapses). She is a cook, a gardener, works terribly hard in cold weather in the house & out of the house. She loves her animals and raises them chiefly for wool, eggs, milk rather than selling them as food. Does her life seem selfish? I thought this was a surprisingly beautiful book.
