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.
Susan Juby’s young adult fiction has garnered tremendous acclaim: recognition as a Children’s Book Sense 76 Pick and ALA Best Book, nominations for the Stephen Leacock Medal for Humor, and the Amazon.ca/Books in Canada First Novel award. Her trilogy about Alice MacLeod, beginning with Alice, I Think, was made into a television series of the same title that aired on CTV in Canada. This is her first adult novel. She lives in Vancouver Island, Canada.
