Hit by a Farm: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Barn

Catherine Friend, read by the author. Dog Ear Audio, unabridged, six CDs, 7 hrs., $24.95 ISBN 978-1-935061-13-7
In Catherine Friend’s memoir, she and life partner Melissa Peteler decide to live out the latter’s longtime dream and become farmers in Minnesota. While Peteler has some experience with animals, Friend has almost none. Nevertheless, the pair buys a farm, a pickup truck, and more than 50 lambs for breeding. And as they attempt to “get back to the land,” their often hilarious trails and tribulations begin. Friend’s narration is entertaining and workmanlike, but at times she sounds as if she’s reading to a group of school children. And this solemn but upbeat delivery isn’t always appropriate. Nonetheless, Friend’s enunciation is crystal clear and her pacing is perfect. A De Capo paperback. (May)
