THE GROWING SEASON How I Built a New Life--and Saved an American Farm

by | Read by Sarah Frey

Biography & Memoir • 8.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

At a time when gardening is offering the world a respite from a seemingly endless pandemic, Sarah Frey's story of entrepreneurship, farming, and community strikes a welcome and hopeful chord. The memoir details Frey's beginnings as a plucky kid from rural Illinois with many siblings, who was at one time hailed as "America's Pumpkin Queen." Frey's voice has a lovely softness with a touch of toughness, both of which work well with her message on the importance of opportunity, family, and hard work. Her narration is genuine and grounded--calming even--and it's a treat to hear how she balanced risk and responsibility in her story of agricultural success.
