    Single, 30-something, and working as a writer in New York City, Kristin Kimball was living life as an adventure. But she was beginning to feel a sense of longing for a family and for home. When she interviewed a dynamic young farmer, her world changed. Kristin knew nothing about growing vegetables, let alone raising pigs and cattle and driving horses. But on an impulse, smitten, if not yet in love, she shed her city self and moved to 500 acres near Lake Champlain to start a new farm with him.

    Roberta says: "That's what organic farming is all about"
    "A good story, well written, wrong performer"

    What did you love best about The Dirty Life?

    This is a great story and very well written. The author has a lovely way of telling a story and a command of the langauge.


    What aspect of Tavia Gilbert’s performance would you have changed?

    The reader sounded very uptight and snobby. Her voice grated on me. It wasnt until the end that I became accustomed to it.

    This sweet and funny tale of a preppy editor buying a Brooklyn deli with his Korean in-laws is about family, culture clash, and the quest for authentic experiences. It starts with a gift. When Ben Ryder Howe’s wife, the daughter of Korean immigrants, decides to repay her parents’ self-sacrifice by buying them a store, Howe, an editor at the rarefied Paris Review, agrees to go along.

    lesley says: "Absolutely delightful!"
    "This guy sounds like a jerk"

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The story sounded appealing, but it wasn't. I dont know if it was the narrator's snottiness or the story, but
