Mud Season

Stimson, Ellen

Book - 2013
Average Rating: 3.5 stars out of 5.
Mud Season
Rural Vermont: mountains ablaze in autumnal glory, Main Streets quaint and welcoming. When Stimson decides she wants to own and operate the old-fashioned village store in idyllic Dorset, pop. 2,036, one of the oldest continually operating country stores in the country, she learns the hard way that "improvements" are not always welcomed warmly by folks who like things just fine the way they'd always been. She chronicles her immersion into rural life, fighting off skunks, foxes, and bears, and making a few friends and allies in a tiny town steeped in local tradition. "How one woman's dream of moving to Vermont--raising children, chickens, and sheep & running the old country store--pretty much led to one calamity after another"--Jacket.

Stimson and her family have no idea what they're in for when they up & move to Vermont. Their cluelessness continues to show through as they get into one jam after another with the local folk. Lots of laugh-out-loud moments, and plenty of cringeworthy ones too!
