This is an early-rising, light breeze, blue sky, nobody around for miles kind of book. We follow two gentlemen: a struggling Mennonite and widowed farmer named David and a big-city, martinis and gay bar party-boy named Christie. When Christie’s aunt dies and leaves him her farmhouse situated on a few acres in rural Pennsylvania, he moves in and begins preparing the house for sale. David, who rented the few acres from Christie’s aunt, stops by to discuss the land. A series of events lead these two into a slow-burning romance full of angst, foreign food, and finding the courage to do something for yourself for once.
