From Library Journal:

This latest collection of Leimbach's short essays on the everyday life of the American farm wife runs the gamut from machinery breakdowns to quilting bees. Each selection is suffused with a mixture of warm humor and down-to-earth wisdom. Any reader, regardless of background, should be able to relate to the vivid descriptions of building a tree house, cleaning a refrigerator, being sent to the store to buy parts for equipment with which one is not familiar, adapting to an empty nest. Particularly poignant are her reflections on the death of her 21-year-old son. By reading this book one can share the author's pride and joy in an aspect of Americana rapidly disappearing. Recommended for most libraries. Ken Phifer, Montgomery Cty. P.L. & Montgomery Coll Lib., Rocville, Md.

From Publishers Weekly:

Leimbach's previous collections of essays (A Thread of Blue Denim, All My Meadows not only offered readers an appreciation of farm life but led to speaking engagements for the author with farm groups throughout the country. Here, Leimbach reflects on eight episodes in her life that occurred during middle age, when she lost her son and mother but gained a grandchild. The essays embrace family, farming, the seasons, nature, everyday life. She reminisces about travels, people she met, childhood, church and community affairs. There are more stories about End-O'-Way Farm, the roadside market and its customers. As always, Leimbach presents a delicious slice of Americana. Illustrations.
