Dear Libby, It occurs to me that you and your two
children have been living with your mother for—Dear
Lord!—two whole years, and I'm writing to see if
you'd like to be rescued.
The letter comes out of the blue, and just in time for
Libby Moran, who—after the sudden death of her
husband, Danny—went to stay with her hypercritical
mother. Now her crazy Aunt Jean has offered Libby an
escape: a job and a place to live on her farm in the Texas
Hill Country. Before she can talk herself out of it, Libby
is packing the minivan, grabbing the kids, and hitting the
Life on Aunt Jean's goat farm is both more wonderful
and more mysterious than Libby could have imagined. Beyond
the animals and the strenuous work, there is
quiet—deep, country quiet. But there is also a
shaggy, gruff (though purportedly handsome, under all that
hair) farm manager with a tragic home life, a formerly
famous feed–store clerk who claims she can contact
Danny "on the other side," and the eccentric aunt Libby
never really knew but who turns out to be exactly what
she's been looking for. And despite everything she's lost,
Libby soon realizes how much more she's found. She hasn't
just traded one kind of crazy for another: She may
actually have found the place to bring her little
family—and herself—back to life.
