of Dewey the Library Cat A witty memoir reminding us that the best lessons in life are beyond the edge of ones comfort zone, and one can only be towed there by the heart strings Jean Abernethy, creator of Fergus the Horse Marley and Me, complete with mud stomping horses, fence leaping ponies, and scheming canines, comes to a family living on a farm in Virginia At first the engineer husband cannot believe the pent up mischief in his wifes beloved, and ever expanding menagerie Yet this solidly grounded man, skeptical initially, is increasingly swept into the humor and charm of animal antics Nor can he resist the horse whisperer herself Which is what happens to the reader This tale is a must read for animal lovers But even for the reader who prefers humans, it quickly becomes a page turner.The writing is so engaging, wecant wait to see what happens next to this bewitching family Maralys Wills Author, Higher Than Eagles I absolutely loved reading The Reluctant Farmer of Whimsey Hill I wanted to move to Virginia immediately and buy a farm The Smith family had horses, dogs, cats and an Angus steer named Pork Chop that the family calls Daddys cow Brad meets Nancy at a dance and soon the fun begins They marry, have two daughters, and move to the country Life on the farm is anything but dull with Junior and Figgy, two horses that enjoy doing unusual things to Brad every chance they get They like pushing Brad into puddles and locking him in a stall, and his cow manages to run away and get into difficult situations that just add to the fun and confusion Gardening turns out to be harder than expected and soon weeds appear than veggies A local hurricane makes for a scary night and harvesting hay turns into a trip to the hospital Brad tells about all of these events in great detail and usually with some how did I get myself into this thinking The Reluctant Farmer of Whimsey Hill is an animal lovers delight, but there is so much love, family, friendship, humor, sadness and just good reading Bradford M Smith, Lynn Raven and Nancy Raven Smith have joined forces and written a perfectly delightful book that was impossible to put down I cannot say enough good things about The Reluctant Farmer of Whimsey Hill I highly recommend it to everyone young and old male and female you will not be disappointed Reviewed By Trudi LoPreto for Readers FavoriteGood for the soul.By Susannah St Clair Foxy Loxy VINE VOICE Format Kindle EditionIn our world of so much ugliness and tragedy The Reluctant Farmer ofWhimsey Hill is an absolute breath of fresh air Warmly humorous anddead on about a man trying to deal with all sorts of animals who was aNOT an animal person when he fell in love with one who is The fact that this all happens in an area that was once my own homeland enhances it greatly for me Who would think I would ever see the words Jubal A Early again in this lifetime Having lived the first third of my lifein Maryland and often been back and forth to Virginia, Whites Ferry isalso well known along with the Potomac and in Maryland our own Patuxent The subtle and often self depreciating levity that runs throughout the book enchants me Brad Smith. he enchants me The only thing I thinkthat disappointed me was the fact that the Jack Russells didnt gettheir own chapter I cant imagine them not adding as much disaster tofarm life as the pony Figgy did The narrative is beautifullywritten and everything put in the book should have been No wordiness,no off the map side trips It all works so very well Love the chapterheadings too. gives you the next problem in a quick nutshell Allthe animals make exquisite characters that you grow fond of Well maybePorkchop was my exception I kept thinking everytime I read about thenext irritating thing he did..Brad, my man, thats why they have cattlesales For heavens sake, just take him to the market My good friendraises grass fed beef and this is what she does everytime she has a cowor steer that isnt performing to her standards I was also really happy that they included an epilogue and I was able to learn about allthe animals characters and how they ended up along with Bradsfamily.The only real fault I could find is that it didnt go onlonger The Reluctant Farmer of Whimsey Hill is a light hearted, true love story between than a man and a woman Imagine Marley and Me, not with one pesky dog, but with a farm full of quirky animals The narrative follows Brads fish out of water point of view as a 25 year old, animal phobic, computer nerd from the city who moves to a rural, Virginia farm with his new, animal loving bride There hes propelled on a journey of self discovery as his brides crazy animals teach him about life and love the hard way.
