Publisher's Summary

Len Parker is laid off during the recession in the early 80s and decides to go back to college at home in rural Michigan, where he reconnects with his best friend from high school, Ruby. He's overjoyed when she marries Cliff Laughton and overcome with sorrow when she dies an untimely death, leaving behind her husband and two-year-old son.
Out of work again, Len finds a job at Cliff Laughton's sorely neglected farm. Cliff is still mourning his wife, struggling to raise his son, and has little enthusiasm or energy left for work. Len immediately begins to whip the farm—including the two Laughtons—into shape. Working side by side, Len and Cliff grow ever closer, but loving another man takes a lot of courage. They'll have to stand together as they face faltering business, threatening drought, misguided family, and Midwestern prejudices to protect what might be a lifelong love.

Great Read

This was a great read. I enjoyed the characters immensely. I fell in love with some and grew to despise others as their lives became further entwined. Having grown up in a small rural town, I know how the busy-bodies can be and this book shows small-town life just as it is, in that respect. The level of homophobia is dialed way back and it was nice to see characters which seemed to say "just because you live in the sticks doesn't mean you're a hick!" I would highly recommend this book if you are looking for a heartwarming story where the conflict is not disempowering.

A Beautiful Story

This book is the first of two and it is a wonderful experience. I have listened to it several times now as Andrew Grey has become one of my favorite authors. His other 3 books available here are all wonderful, emotionally rivetting stories that will take you from hot steamy scenes to crying at the sorrow of the characters.
