    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"
    "Back to Basics"

    What made the experience of listening to The Valley of Horses the most enjoyable?

    This series is a re-read (listen?) for me ... Read it many years ago and couldn't face picking up these biggggg books again! I enjoy the storyline


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Ala of course! Overcame all obsticals


    What about Sandra Burr’s performance did you like?

    Held my interest - Her voice was a little hard to get used to in the first book.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Both


    Any additional comments?

    It definately made me blush!
