Overview

In her first book, which won the L. L. Winship/PEN New England Award, Jane Brox writes of going back to the farm where she grew up, to help her aging father and the troubled brother who works the land with him. She memorably captures the cadences of farm life and the people who sustain it, at a time when both are waning.

This is an account of the author's life on her family's farm in the Merrimack Valley of Massachusetts. The author's descriptions of the land are vivid, but her writing style does not flow quite as naturally as the nearby Merrimack River. It is, however, a good depiction of farm life.
