Fifty Acres and a Poodle by Jeanne Marie Laskas, 272 pages, read by Melody, on 05/02/2012

A delightful book about an avowed city girl with closet dreams of owning a farm.  When the farm of her dreams comes up for sale, complete with an Amish barn and beautiful vistas, she and her boyfriend buy it and trade a life of walking down the street for a paper and a bagel for bulldozing multiflora roses and pond mucking.  Wonderful memoir about how when your dreams come true, then the real work begins. Thanks Tammy for the recommendation.
