The Farm She Was

The Farm She Was Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Irene Leahy, a tough-minded old farmwoman, battles to save the sheepfarm in upstate New York where she has lived since birth. She scoffs at the minister who tries to convince her to move into a nursing home, and roars at the realtor who presses her to sell out — all the while reliving what she has experienced over the years on that farm: love and betrayal, loss, longing, self-sufficiency and joy.

Irene's story, slipping in and out of the past and present, is a story about 20th century rural life and an American era rapidly coming to a close. It is a story about our relationship to the land, to animals, to nature, and to each other.

Synopsis:

A relationship with the land--and an American era.

The Farm She Was is the story of a strong and resilient single woman, Irene Leahy. It also is a story about our relationship to the land, to animals, to nature, and to each other.

Irene's story, slipping in and out of the past and present, is a story about rural life spanning most of this century. It is about an American era rapidly coming to a close.

Synopsis:

A story of love and loss, and the evolution of farm life as the 20th century unfolded, narrated by a feisty farm woman as she reflects on her life.
