The long-awaited sequel to the classic A Day No Pigs Would Die, this poignant and earthily poetic book reintroduces readers to Rob, the Shaker boy living on the hardscrabble farm in Vermont during the early year of the Depression, who is now in sole charge of his motley household, following the death of his father.

From the Back Cover:

"This poignant sequel to A Day No Pigs Would Die will touch readers of all ages..."-- School Library Journal

From AudioFile:

A sequel to the well-respected A Day No Pigs Would Die, this audiobook is of equal quality in theme, style and storyline. It carries with it the added benefit of being expertly performed by Terry Bregy. Both deal with a Shaker boy and his maturation on a Vermont farm in the 1920's. Especially stressed are the boy's love for his family and the farm animals, as well as the importance of the land. While at times overly emphatic, Bregy delivers a fine performance, capturing well the New Hampshire/Vermont backwoods accent. His vocal characterizations are excellent, and the pacing is appropriate. An added treat is hearing creative regionalisms, such as "a man so crooked he could hide behind a corkscrew." Especially inspiring and instructive for young adults, Bregy's interpretation underscores the goodness of Shaker ways. P.W. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
