Susan Juby's Adult Fiction Debut

Prudence Burns, a well-intentioned New Yorker full of back-to-the-land ideals, just inherited Woefield Farm—thirty acres of scrubland, dilapidated buildings, and one half-sheared sheep. But the bank is about to foreclose, so Prudence must turn things around fast! Fortunately she'll have help from Earl, her banjo-playing foreman with a family secret; Seth, the neighbor who hasn't left the house since a high school scandal; and Sara Spratt, an eleven-year-old who's looking for a home for her prize-winning chickens.

Home to Woefield is about learning how to take on a challenge, face your fears, and find friendship in the most unlikely of places.

Jackie says:

"This is a hilarious book about a naive but passionately idealistic 24 year old city girl who inherits a broken down farm. And its' old curmudgeon of a farm hand. And a hard-rocking, blogging, agoraphobic boarder. And a precocious junior chicken farmer. And a traumatized sheep. And a teensy little lie told to a banker. Mix all these things together, add in a sexy vet and a bluegrass festival and you've got one lovely romp of a book that could very well cause spontaneous giggles and sudden guffaws. This is a fun, fun read."
