Summary "Jeanne Marie Laskas had a dream of fleeing her otherwise happy urban life for fresh air and open space - a dream she would discover was about something more than that. But she never expected her fantasy to come true - until a summer afternoon' s drive in the country. That' s when she and her boyfriend, Alex - owner of Marley the poodle - stumble upon the place she thought existed only in her dreams. This pretty-as-a-picture-postcard farm with an Amish barn, a chestnut grove, and breathtaking vistas is real ... and for sale. And it' s where she knows her future begins. But buying a postcard - fifty acres of scenery - and living on it are two entirely different matters. With wit and wisdom, Laskas chronicles the heartwarming and heartbreaking stories of the colorful two- and four-legged creatures she encounters on Sweetwater Farm. Against a backdrop of brambles, a satellite dish, and sheep, she tells a tender, touching, and hilarious tale about life, love, and the unexpected complications of having your dream come true"--Publisher's description.
