Their husbands were gone, their families were grown, and the future stretched out before them like an unfulfilled promise...

Tired of always dreaming and never doing, Cici, Lindsay, and Bridget make a life-altering decision. Uprooting themselves from their comfortable lives in the suburbs, the three friends buy a run-down mansion, nestled in the picturesque Shenandoah Valley. They christen their new home "Ladybug Farm," hoping that the name will bring them luck.

As the friends take on a home improvement challenge of epic proportions, they encounter disaster after disaster, from renegade sheep and garden thieves to a seemingly ghostly inhabitant. Over the course of a year, overwhelming obstacles make the three women question their decision, but they ultimately learn that sometimes the best things can happen when everything goes wrong...

I loved this book. It wasn't as thought provoking as some of the other books I considered for this swap, but the story of the friendship of these three women really touched me. The pace of the events keeps the book moving, and I really found myself wanting to see the house and the renovations they were making. I look forward to reading the next two in the series. In fact I just ordered the second one today. I just couldn't wait for it to pop up at PBS or in a vbb somewhere.

This book has been passed around in my family and at work and will now be traveling to Canada to someone who selected it in a swap at BookObsessed.

I received this a week ago, but didn't get a chance to journal it! Looking forward to it! Thanks Loriped.
