Description


They were an unlikely pair: a "fast and frantic" woman and a steady, "pickin' at it" man. And even though both had been raised in cities and knew nothing about farming, Bill and Cynthia Thayer moved to Maine, started an organic farm, and made it work for more than forty years. Then a mysterious disaster strikes and Bill is found lying in the road. In We're Going Home, Cynthia relates the aftermath of the accident, interspersed with recollections of her life with her beloved "Farmer Bill," from their first meeting to their final goodbye--and her life beyond.

About the Author


Cynthia Underwood Thayer earned bachelor's and master's degrees in British Literature before moving to Gouldsboro, Maine to be an organic farmer with her husband Bill more than four decades ago. Today, Darthia Farm encompasses 250 acres of recaptured pasture, hay land, gardens, and a selectively managed woodlot. Thayer has previously written three novels--Strong for Potatoes, A Certain Slant of Light, and A Brief Lunacy.
