KIRKUS REVIEW

An inspirational sort of human document of a woman who refuses to be downed although she cannot find her place in the business world. Out of a job, due to the depression, forty, and with a capital of $60, she decides to return to the small farm in Connecticut, and make her own way there. This is the story of her spiritual rehabilitation through the contact with growing things, the arduous tasks she sets herself, the battle to raise food, to defeat her insect enemies, to learn through books, There's a note of hope for many.
