Overview

The setting for Sweet Farm of Mine is the American Midwest, a small town in Wisconsin. This is where Ruth returns when she discovers she wants a more meaningful life. The road she chooses with her father Arlan, to buy and farm Old Charlie's place, gives her plenty of challenges to test her mettle. She also discovers a way of life that is in harmony with nature, where life is lived by the seasons, where food comes from soil, and where no good thing is easy. Her friendship forged with Old Charlie will change her forever. Divorced, unhappy, and looking for something better to base her life upon, Ruth rediscovers her roots. At first, Ruth joins in her father's long held dream to make a living from the land. But then the transformation she least expects begins, and before long, Ruth begins finding her way back to a life lived from the heart. This is the story of Ruth and Arlan and the people they meet on the journey. Country scenes such as Charlie's auction, a country picnic, and seasonal blessings are literary set pieces. Full of joy and sorrow, drama and serenity, challenges and pleasures, Ruth's journey will become your journey too.
