Now Where Did I Put That Husband…

 

thelosthusband I really enjoyed  reading this book!!! I found myself thinking of it even when I wasn’t reading it, wondering what was going to happen next…

The book starts out with Libby moving in with her mother after her husband unexpectedly dies in a car crash – a “temporary” living arrangement that ends up lasting 2 years. Through a stroke of luck, Libby and her two children move out onto her Aunt’s farm in the middle of nowhere. This is where the real fun begins!

This book really struck a cord with me – not only because I spent a year living on a farm myself, but also because Libby starts out as a clueless city girl, and ends up really loving life on the farm. The simple pleasure of doing things for yourself – cooking dinner from scratch, cleaning up after the animals, feeding and caring for them – really keeps life interesting!

It really made me look at my own life and appreciate the simple things – reading a book, instead of watching tv. Just being outside instead of sitting at a computer.

I would recommend this book to anyone who needs a “vacation” from the average read – something that holds your interest and is a great escape from the mundane.

The perfect description of this book actually comes from the book itself – “It was pure whimsy … each thing you noticed seemed like the best – until you noticed the next thing.” This one sentences describes the book perfectly!

I was lucky enough to receive an ARC from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.
