Picked this one up in the bargain basket at Chapters - like most of my books. I was pleasantly surprised. The premise of the story is that a woman's aunt dies and leaves her her farm, except the woman, Phoebe, is wheelchair bound. As luck would have it, she takes in an absolute stranger, a woman ferrier, who is desperately in need of a place to stay. Thinking that she's on to something, she takes in two other women, both looking for a place to live, all coming from similar, hard-luck circumstances. The four form a most likely friendship that only happens among a band of misfits.
And, of course, the four women make the farm a go, despite the set backs that make for a good story. And, of course, the four women find love - filial, friendship, romantic - despite the set backs that make for a good story. It's a triumphant story, one that cheers your spirit when you need it most. It makes you believe that there is goodness in the world.
