A Year on Ladybug Farm

A Year on Ladybug Farm

I loved the first in this series of books by Donna Ball called A Year on Ladybug Farm. Read this one for sure!

Three good friends and neighbors...Cici, Bridget and Lindsay...decide to sell their three houses and start a new life in a very run down large farmhouse called Ladybug Farm. Life is Virginia is very different than life in the city and they are learning each day to adapt. They work hard together to bring an old mansion back to life and start the farm up once again. But they did not bargain for all the problems the house brings. They made a pact to give it a year and then reassess the following Christmas. But they did not count on the amount of money as well as hard work that was needed.....

This book is just wonderful! It has great description of the farm, house and surroundings. It has fun characters that will stay with you well after the last page is turned.

Happy reading!
Heidi

Heidi, this sounds like a winner. I used to want to repair/update old houses but I probably would have lost everything I had. It's fun to dream. Take care!

I'm sure the soup and the company was very nice.
That books sounds like the series we
read before. the ladies leaving home and all getting together then.
Sounds like a good one.
I just finished two of my nook books while on the bus trip. Now I am going to start a book Brenda lent me to read. The Inn at Rose Harbor by Debbie Macomber.
Love you, Mom
