I'm so happy to announce that Susan Juby will be joining us on Book Club Girl On Air on Tuesday, April 5th at 7pm ET to discuss her new novel, Home to Woefield! Susan is already a well-known YA author, having penned the beloved Alice MacLeod series that began with Alice, I Think. Home to Woefield is her first adult novel and is a charming and extremely funny read.
Prudence Burns, a well-intentioned New Yorker full of back-to-the-land ideals, just inherited Woefield Farm--thirty acres of scrubland, dilapidated buildings, and one half-sheared sheep. But the bank is about to foreclose, so Prudence must turn things around fast! Fortunately, she'll have help from Earl, her banjo-playing foreman with a family secret; Seth, the neighbor who hasn't left the house since a high school scandal; and Sara Spratt, an eleven-year-old who's looking for a home for her prize-winning chickens.
Home to Woefield is about learning how to take on a challenge, face your fears, and find friendship in the most unlikely of places.
Read the first chapter of Home to Woefield here and set your reminder for the show on April 5th. I have 10 copies of the book to give away to the first 10 people who comment that they'd like to participate in the show on April 5th. Also check out the reading group guide, follow Susan on Twitter, and stop by her blog.
In addition to the book giveaway, Susan has generously provided a fantastic hen bag purse for 1 lucky reader! I'll pick 1 random winner for the hen bag from everyone who comments by midnight Friday, March 11th!
