Reviews:
500 Acres and No Place to Hide: More Confessions of a Counterfeit Farm Girl
“500 Acres and No Place to Hide will just as easily make readers laugh as wipe tears from their eyes.”
— Kirkus Reviews
“Self-deprecating and funny… This second memoir is grounded by the author’s husband’s diagnosis of terminal cancer. Unexpectedly, the book’s mood does not darken after this revelation. Instead, in the same very personal, very honest voice that characterizes her lighter passages, she shares how the ridiculous, the annoying, and the sublime are interwoven against the stark reality of his illness. It is this honesty and her bravery in the face of paralyzing fear that readers will admire.”
— Publisher’s Weekly

Reviews:
Confessions of a Counterfeit Farm Girl
