500 Acres and No Place to Hide: More Confessions of a Counterfeit Farm Girl

Front Cover
Penguin, Aug 2, 2011 - Biography & Autobiography - 368 pages
The hilarious follow-up to the memoir, Confessions of a Counterfeit Farm Girl.

It's been four years since Susan's husband dragged her kicking and screaming from their comfortable, big city East Coast life to a farm in Virginia cattle country. Susan's adjusting as best she can, which isn't easy considering she's been known to wear Manolos in manure. She'll never be a real farm girl, but as readers will see from her side- splitting confessions, she's faking it just fine.
