Basically, this is the story of two jaded city slickers who move from sunny San Francisco, California to the unpredictable eastern weather of Zion, Pennsylvania. This book is more than just dealing with cold weather, old coal furnaces, remodeling, animal attacks, country neighbors and money crunching. This book is also about Ms. Miller finding herself and coming to terms with her Missouri upbringing after her mother killed herself, contemplating her relationships (spiritual & other). I found it very heartwarming. Ms. Miller writes in a very charming, honest, humorous and descriptive way. Tho, to me it drug out a bit in mid-story when she's helping restore a historical landmark.

The only thing I didn't like in this book was that Ms. Miller went way overboard with the cursing and foul language. All the taking of God's name in vain and foul language wasn't called for and in my opinion it didn't add anything to Ms. Miller's otherwise wonderful story.
