My 2 Beans? What an absolutely delightful and enjoyable story! These ladies are my idols. What better way to spend your older years than with friends creating a place of your dreams? I can't think of one. Three women, with three very different personalities come together to buy a property & turn it into a business and a home. There's all kinds of potential here for humor, poignancy, and drama; Ms. Ball lives up to them all. So why not 5 cups? Well...there were a few personality aspects of the characters that were annoying. However, that's a personal thing, but you might not agree. So, keep reading to find out if you'd like to visit Ladybug Farm.
Synopsis as found on Goodreads: "Their husbands were gone, their families were grown, and the future stretched out before them like an unfulfilled promise...
Tired of always dreaming and never doing, Cici, Lindsay, and Bridget make a life-altering decision. Uprooting themselves from their comfortable lives in the suburbs, the three friends buy a run-down mansion, nestled in the picturesque Shenandoah Valley. They christen their new home "Ladybug Farm," hoping that the name will bring them luck.
As the friends take on a home improvement challenge of epic proportions, they encounter disaster after disaster, from renegade sheep and garden thieves to a seemingly ghostly inhabitant. Over the course of a year, overwhelming obstacles make the three women question their decision, but they ultimately learn that sometimes the best things can happen when everything goes wrong."
