Review: When Summer's in the Meadow

User Review  - Jeanette - Goodreads

I have always wanted to visit Ireland. I think I need to go back to read the first book they wrote. This one is of their years in Ireland after they are slightly better settled and are adopting a baby. I love reading about their farm and their simple everyday life. I envy them their community.
