When she awakened months later, she was paralyzed and mute, the victim of two strokes. The next years were a blur of frustration, agony, and abandonment. But Julia fought back with everything she had until, at last, her isolation was broken and her eloquent voice unlocked for all to hear.

But her transformation from city slicker to country bumpkin wasn't always smooth. Townsfolk were guarded. Winters left her snowbound and lonely, with only bears and mountain lions for company. But when the neighbors and the weather finally thawed, Holland learned to revel in her newfound world. A warm, witty paean to the simple life.
