Item description for A Can of Peas (Lake Emily) by Traci DePree...

Instead of embracing the career-chasing ambitions of their friends in St. Paul, Peter Morgan and his new bride Mae accept the daunting challenge of saving the family farm in the Minnesota countryside. Original.

Publishers Description
Weaving together the strong threads of family and friends in a pattern of grace, forgiveness, and kindness, "A Can of Peas" invites readers into a place where every day brings a new story and neighbors are more than just people who live down the road. Sometimes funny and often poignant, these vignettes will draw both men and women into the reassuring rhythms of life as it ought to be-and as it still is in the heart of America.
After the death of his grandfather, Peter Morgan and his new bride, Mae, face a life-changing decision: should they embrace the career-chasing ambitions of their family and friends in St. Paul or accept the absurd challenge of saving the family farm in the Minnesota countryside?
Enticed by the romance of a simple, quiet life, the Morgans set out to follow in the footsteps of Peter's grandparents. Soon, Peter is farming around the clock, barely one step ahead of failure as Mae struggles to find her place in Peter's life and in the community. Will the strain of saving the farm tear their marriage apart? Was it a mistake to dream?

Reviews - What do customers think about A Can of Peas?

More than a can of peas  Apr 1, 2008
This book is the beginning of a set of three books that you will want to savor slowly and thoughtfully. The characters become your neighbors and friends. This book series gently teaches lessons in faith, life and love. The only disappointment in this series is when you read the last page in the third book and realise that you must leave your book friends. The writing style is different as Traci teaches us that we all have our own story of what makes us who we are. If you are like most of the readers, you would love to live in or visit Lake Emily.
I wanted to like this book...  Aug 30, 2007
I'm sorry, but this book was just okay. It was a very slow read, and the characters were just not developed fully. It wasn't a bad story, but don't expect much to happen. I did not care for the ending. The mood was too stark of a contrast to the rest of the book.
Great feel good book  Jan 16, 2007
Can of Peas was a wonderful book. The first in a series of three. The book makes the reader think about life and relook at what is important. I would recommend it to all.
A great book with Midwest American flavor!  Jan 10, 2007
As a 37-year resident of the Midwest, I loved the authenticity of this book. From the seedcorn caps to the helpful neighbors in combines, it was a refreshing reminder of a simpler way of life and faith!
very slow  Nov 5, 2006
I thought this book was a total snore. I could not even finish it.
