A laugh-out-loud memoir about a city slicker who discovers that Manolos and manure just don?t mix. At her husband?s prompting, suburban mom and New York career woman Susan McCorkindale agreed to give up her stressful six-figure job. Together, they headed down south to a 500-acre beef farm, and never looked back. Well, he didn?t look back. She did. A lot. From playing ?spot the religious billboard? on the drive to rural Virginia, to adapting to a world without Starbucks, to planning bright-orange hunter-resistant wardrobes for the kids (?We moved here to get away from the madness of Manhattan only to risk getting popped on our own property?), this is her hilarious account of how a city girl came to love?or at least tolerate?country life.

She'll never be a real farm girl, but as readers will see from her side- splitting confessions, she's faking it just fine.

In the blizzard of attention around the virtues of local food production, food writers and activists place environmental protection, animal welfare, and saving small farms at the forefront of their attention. Yet amid this turn to wholesome and responsible food choices, the lives and working conditions of farmworkers are often an afterthought. Labor and the Locavore focuses on one of the most vibrant local food economies in the country, the Hudson Valley that supplies New York restaurants and farmers markets. Based on more than a decade’s in-depth interviews with workers, farmers, and others, Gray’s examination clearly shows how the currency of agrarian values serves to mask the labor concerns of an already hidden workforce. She also explores the historical roots of farmworkers’ predicaments and examines the ethnic shift from Black to Latino workers. With an analysis that can be applied to local food concerns around the country, this book challenges the reader to consider how the mentality of the alternative food movements implies a comprehensive food ethic that addresses workers’ concerns.

When an ancient tax law is invoked requiring all unmarried ladies to either wed or surrender half their wealth, it's not long before the quiet village of Fortune's Folly is overrun by a swarm of fortune-hunting bachelors. Marry again? Never! Not after what Laura, the dowager duchess, was forced to endure. Even if the arrival of her onetime paramour, Dexter Anstruther, is oh-so-tempting, she knows the secret she's kept from him would destroy any chance at a future together. Young, handsome and scandalously enticing, Dexter suspects Laura has a hidden motive for resisting his charms...and he intends to expose her, by any means necessary.

THE PROFESSOR WITH MANY FACES Two decaying corpses are found buried on campus. A bizarre chemistry professor, a developing international conspiracy, and suspected sabotage of a war production factory confront Sam and Howie when they enroll as freshmen at Taylor University in Upland, Indiana. The year is 1944 and the United States is at war with the Axis powers. When Sam and Howie discover written communications during their chemistry classes that appear to be coded messages they attempt to decipher the baffling combinations of letters. Ominous and life-threatening events then develop that include Nazi agents, escaped German P.O.W. s, and Spade Digger, the rather odd owner of a nearby mortuary. The county sheriff, his inept deputy, the F.B.I. and the U.S. Office of Strategic Services are all involved in the attempt to solve this complicated and threatening intrigue. Will Sam's romantic interest in Ginny, his long time heartthrob, survive the tensions of war? And will Howie's new-found love continue to blossom? Will Sam and Howie be able to survive the academic challenges at Taylor and at the same time overcome the hair-raising gauntlet of circumstances facing them as they attempt to expose The Professor with Many Faces? You will have to read every chapter to find out.
