What a lovely, warm-hearted book! A Year on Ladybug Farm tells the story of three friends who, together, buy a dilapidated estate in Shenandoah Valley. At first they have grandiose dreams of an art school, a winery, and a fully restored mansion with dairy and stately gardens. But the house has other plans for them. They discover an unruly flock of sheep in their beautiful pasture, a mysterious ghost seems to be leaving them hints, and the vegetable plants keep disappearing from the garden. Each succes is followed by disaster until they wonder if they are cut out for the country life afterall.

I loved this book! Its realistically written with the three women loving and supporting each other, but sometimes losing their tempers and stepping on toes. Cici, Lindsay, and Bridget risk everything to go after their dreams, never giving up, until they discover that their dreams may be different then they thought. I appreciate the message that you can grow and learn (and have adventure!) no matter what your age! Did I mention that the book is funny? Laugh-out-loud, absolutely hilarious in parts, you may also have to wipe away a tear or two. If you are looking for a book to lift your spirits, this is it!

Not the Best

This is the kind of book you read when you really have nothing better on your shelf.

    A delightful read

    I was totally charmed by the story from beginning to end. Many things were delightful...the fact that all the main characters were women my age (mid 50's) and older: the premise of the story, buying of property and renovating the farm and house; the quirky characters of the small town; the highs and lows as progress and setbacks occurred. I have recommended this book to my book group as well as to other friends. I loved it.

    Great read about mature women

    This was a great book about 4 mature women and their efforts to make a new path for themselves. It slao had a very touching back story about their efforts to rejuvenate a great old estate. It really dfraws you into the story, and there are a few unexpected plot twists. I have already ordered the sequel.

    Great story about friendship

    I loved the friendship of these women. Reading it made me want to join my BGF's in an adventure such as this! What a fun read! I shared it with all my sisters and girlfriends! I thought it dragged a little in the middle of the story but it picked up again and gave a great ending.
