Fifty Acres and a Poodle by Jeanne Marie Laskas was a look at the author’s (a city girl) move to the country. Her style is very conversational, although a little scattered. She’ll be telling a story, then something else will pop in her head and she’ll run with that for a while. Although this was annoying at times, I enjoyed reading this book, it was fun and easy. Her life on the farm is filled with ups and downs, but she finds herself through it all.
First line, “It’s hard to say how a dream forms, especially one like mine, which at first seemed so utterly random.”
Last line, “It was the truth.”
