Teaser Tuesday: A Farm Dies Once a Year by Arlo Crawford

My father once told me that Bert's murder was a freak event, more like getting hit by lightning than a story with a logical conclusion.  I knew he was partly right, but I also knew that Bert's ambition and personality had been part of the story too.

--A Farm Dies Once a Year: A Memoir by Arlo Crawford.

Crawford uses the annual agricultural cycle to frame his memoir about growing up on an organic farm in Pennsylvania. You've heard of "armchair travel" as a genre? How about "armchair farming"? It appeals to me!

But there is this whole murder-of-a-neighbor angle that gives the story a little edge.

Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by Should Be Reading, where you can find the official rules for this weekly event.

Sounds suspicious! I bet you can't put the book down because the plot just keeps building :)
