Confessions of a Counterfeit Farm Girl by Susan McCorkingdale
I saw this book for sale at Target and thought it sounded interesting. This book is truly funny! The author has a high flying magazine editor job in New York, but wanted out. Her husband found a 500 acre cattle farm his brother bought and needed a manager for 2 years. So, the family moved from New Jersey to the middle-of-no-where. The book is in short essay/chapter form. Yes, there are lots of where-am-I-going-to-buy-my-designer-shoes-now, type of jokes, but my favorites are when she discusses her kids. As a mother myself, I can totally relate to what she says about the crazy stuff her kids do. There were numerous times when I was reading that I laughed so hard my eyes started tearing up. The perfect book to laugh away the grey end of winter days.
