In fact, you’re paid big money to stay here—more than you’ve ever dreamed of. The catch? For nine months, you cannot leave the grounds, your movements are monitored, and you are cut off from your former life while you dedicate yourself to the task of producing the perfect baby. For someone else. Jane, an immigrant from the Philippines, is in desperate search of a better future when she commits to being a “Host” at Golden Oaks—or the Farm, as residents call it. But now pregnant, fragile, consumed with worry for her family, Jane is determined to reconnect with her life outside. Yet she cannot leave the Farm or she will lose the life-changing fee she’ll receive on the delivery of her child. Gripping, provocative, heartbreaking, The Farm pushes to the extremes our thinking on motherhood, money, and merit and raises crucial questions about the trade-offs women will make to fortify their futures and the futures of those they love.

She secretly longs for more. Along comes William “Will” Zimmerman, a Mennonite chef who runs a restaurant located next door to the Amish market. He wants Salina to supply the produce for his restaurant, and as they forge a business relationship, they both feel themselves falling in love. Salina especially tries to deny her feelings for Will since her father wants her to marry within the community.

Soil dries into sand; honeycomb stiffens into wax. But Cynthia knows how to breathe life back into her farm: offer it as an artists’ colony with free room, board, and “life experience” in exchange for backbreaking labor. Silvia, a wide-eyed graduate and would-be poet, and Ibrahim, a painter distracted by constant inspiration, are drawn to Cynthia’s offer, and soon, to each other. But something lies beneath the surface. The Edenic farm is plagued by events that strike Silvia as ominous: taps run red, scalps itch with lice, frogs swarm the pond. One by one, the other residents leave. As summer tenses into autumn, Cynthia’s shadowed past is revealed and Silvia becomes increasingly paralyzed by doubt. Building to a shocking conclusion, The Honey Farm announces the arrival of a bold new voice and offers a thrilling portrait of creation and possession in the natural world.

Writer, pacifist and feminist, she condemned her provincial background but remained acutely conscious of the conventional elements in her own character; she revealed a richly emotional life in her writing but was outwardly sober and reserved; she possessed a fierce desire for fame and recognition but was ready to sacrifice both on matters of principle. This biography - comprehensive, authoritative and immensely readable - confirms Vera Brittain's stature as one of the most remarkable women of our time.

Miranda determines to do her duty and train Rebecca to be a proper young lady, so she will not shame the Sawyer name.

It was a warm June weekend in 1931 when five people met coincidentally at a lake town in Minnesota. Three of the five were outsiders. Two law school buddies, James Lawton and Charlie Davis were in town on a lark, but immediately began noticing some strange happenings at a nearby lake resort. The other, Lindy MacPherson, had more serious business. As an inexperienced investigator from the Minneapolis branch of the U.S. Attorney's office, her task was to explore a rumor about an alleged gambling operation in the vicinity of Lake Minnewaska. It was supposed to be a simple job neither lengthy nor precarious-more to give her investigative experience while under cover as a travel magazine writer. She'd been observing the same odd occurrences in the town. The other two, a local father and son, John and Adam Bailey, had been ignoring these unusual activities and antics of the peculiar assortment of guests at nearby Chippewa Lodge like everyone else in town. It had been best to do so for the good of the community. Glenwood was thriving during an otherwise very diffi cult economic time all around the country. MacPherson's orders had been strict. If she were to find any evidence relating to illegal gambling, she would leave Glenwood and promptly turn over her findings to the state patrol or the Bureau of Investigation and let them handle any potential arrests. MacPherson did not have an exemplary record of following 'strict orders' --especially when prompt action was needed. Normally, taking on the mob would not be considered by anyone in their right mind. That weekend these five people made a decision. Circumstances required their immediate attention.
