Benjamin Thomas is a recently orphaned eighteen-year-old who finds his way from Florida to Vermont. Almost by accident, or so it seems, he finds employment as a hired hand on the farm of Slim and Mary Smith. Here young Benjamin discovers the joy of kinship with the land. Further, he finds the delight of family, the importance of community, and a beautiful young woman named Reeta. This book looks at life from a Jeffersonian view where fences are well-kept, libraries flourish, people share their lives, and work is a joy. It celebrates life’s possibilities for those who have the courage to hope, dream, and persevere. In today’s world, where people often live at a frantic pace, where “local” is almost always dominated by “global,” where people endure Monday through Friday so that they can live on the weekends, this story offers a breath of fresh air.
