Smashwords book reviews by Harlan Hague

  • The Farm on Dec. 15, 2011

    From a farm in Vermont to a spaceship wedded to an asteroid, Amy and her daughter Elaine embark on an adventure that explores the grief and healing after the loss of a husband and father. There is a hint of lost love regained when Amy and Pablo, a Peruvian friend from fifteen years before, meet by chance, and a new beginning when Amy and Elaine decide they would like to live on a farm in the natural area on the aptly-named spaceship-asteroid, the Rachel Carson. A good read, full of suspense and sharp mother-daughter interaction.
