This was such a great memoir I wanted to read it because I love love love books about farms or making a big life change and moving to a uieter place Full disclosure I ve never seen One Tree Hill so my interest in this memoir was purely because of the rural aspectThere are so many great things about reading this story but the becoming a farmer aspect was my favorite Hilarie begins the story after One Tree Hill at the beginning of her relationship with Jeffrey Dean Morgan She talks of their common interests and their shared dream of starting over somewhere else I could tell that they both wanted and felt a connection to their new place in rural New York not far from New York City and I could tell they really wanted to build things and put their hands in the dirt There is so much nature in here I loved it so much There is also a lot of food and renovation Hilarie shares about projects she took on that were successful and she talks about projects that didn t turn out so well She talks about finding a small community and really digging into it and I found that I really like all of her friends She talks openly about hard things that happened in her life and she talks about the best things that have happened to her The entire memoir is threaded with friendships and parenting and all of it made my heart warm Really this was the perfect read for me during this stayathome time This was my immediately before bedtime book and I was careful to dole it out in small portions over an entire month I m here for every story like this stories where a person makes a goal and achieves it Especially when it involves home renovation gardening and animals I think that fans of Hilarie and Jeff will love this one but I was able to connect to it in a huge way even without having seen them in the shows and movies that they are famous for There is a lot of vulnerability and heart in this book and it was an immensely enjoyable and uplifting read A huge thanks to HarperOneHarperCollins and NetGalley for sending me a copy of this book for review
