Item description for Reasons Not to Move to the Country: One Woman's Calamitous Attempt to Live the Rural Dream by Judy Rumbold...
Clean air, good schools, big gardens, low stress---the whole farm-fresh, quality-assured lifestyle of the countryside seemed the answer to urban woes for Judy Rumbold and her family. But the charms of country living soon faded into a rather stark reality. Living off the land became an exercise in trying to decipher seed packets, and the homely oven quickly turned into a fire-breathing demon with an apparent personal vendetta. Rather than spending their time outside happily making catapults from twigs and fishing with jam-jars, her children instead were slumped indoors watching television, cursing the day they were wrenched away from their friends in town. Packed with humor---and plenty of regret---this memoir shows that farm living is not the life for everyone.
