The subtitle for this book is: How One Woman's Dream of Moving to Vermont, Raising Children, Chickens and Sheep, and Running the Old Country Store Pretty Much Led to One Calamity After Another.
Let's make this a quick review: the author wonders why the townspeople don't like her, and it's because she is impulsive, rude, and clueless! I also didn't like that she doesn't take responsibility for her actions. She writes things like, "I might have said..." or "I might have done this....". Just confess to what you did! It's a memoir!
If you are looking for a book about starting up a farm (albeit an urban farm), I suggest that you skip this book and check out Novella Carpenter's Farm City instead.
