New Arrivals.......

"Those old cows knew trouble was coming before we did." So begins the story of Lily Casey Smith. By age six, Lily was helping her father break horses. At fifteen, she left home to teach in a frontier town- riding five hundred miles on her pony, alone, to get to her job.She learned to drive a car and fly a plane. And, with her husband, Jim, she ran a vast ranch in Arizona. She raised two children, one of whom is Jeanette's memorable mother, Rosemary Smith Walls, unforgettably portrayed in The Glass Castle.

Leelee Satterfield seems to have it all: a gorgeous husband, two adorable daughters, and roots in the sunny city of Memphis, Tennessee. So when her husband gets the idea to uproot the family to run a quaint Vermont inn, Leelee is devastated...and her three best friends are outraged. But she loved Baker Satterfield since the tenth grade, so how can she not indulge his dream? Plus, the glossy photos of bright autumn  trees and smiling children in ski suits push her over the edge. After all, how much trouble could it really be?

In this comedic debut, Lisa Patton paints the charming fish-out-of-water tale of one woman who learns to stand up for herself- in sandals and snow boots- against all odds.
