The Farmer's Wife

"The Farmer's Wife" is a book by Rachel Moore.

The book tells the story of a young farmer's wife named "Poppy" who is bored and fed up with the way things are on the farm, and with the lack of romance between herself and her husband "Sam." Not to mention the constant disapproval and complaints from her Mother-In-Law. So when a smoothe talking and handsome reporter comes to town and takes a liking to Poppy, it doesn't take much for him to sweep her off her feet. Which, as you might expect, only leads to trouble.

It was a good book. Some parts were a little bit predictable, but not enough of them were to spoil the book, if you know what I mean.

:) I think there was a movie with the same title - totally different story though..

Sounds like a good "on the beach" read!

The story line is a little bit like the movie Bridges of Madison County. Most books are a bit predictable, unfortunately.

Thanks for the review, Tori>

Yes, I think it would be a good "on the beach read."

I think there are several books and movies with simular story lines. That's part of what makes the story so predictable in places. This story line is a popular theme... Bored and fed up housewife falls for charming stranger... Happens a lot in books and movies.
