Catherine Friend was happy being an author and writing instructor. She always wore clean clothes. She never had anything disagreeable stuck to the bottom of her shoes. That all changed the day she agreed to help her partner Melissa fulfill Melissa's lifelong ambition to farm in Minnesota. Catherine and Melissa embark on a rural odyssey filled with sheep, goats, chicken, llamas, and a host of other natural disasters. As it turns out, farming isn't all it's cracked up to be.

Hit By a Farm is a coming-of (middle)-age story of a woman trying to close the divide between who she wants to be, and who she really is. After helping Melissa realize her dream, Catherine eventually finds a way to recapture her own in this unforgettable crash course in living off - and living with - the land.

    " Convinced me to never raise sheep. It did, however, sell me on the idea of guard llamas. "

    " I loved Sheepish and went back to get this one, which preceded it. I think I like Sheepish better, as for this kind of book, in Sheepish the author is more settled and content, and it's more about the farm and life than a memoir/growth story. This is similar to the latter, but the author is younger and it shows. Sheepish (which I recommend highly) will go on my shelf as a good read to return to, this one might not. That said, it's a fun quick read. "

    " I loved this book. What an interesting journey, both internal and extenal. Plus, she is so funny. I read another good farm book after this one, that I liked, but I so missed Catherine's sense of humor. Give me any farm book written with real honesty and humor and I'm a happy camper. "

    " I love a good book that makes me laugh out loud. This book earns that mark in spades. (Pun intended). "
