A very pleasant story of nice people and how their lives are interconnected in a small Minnesota town and the small ways that God leads us in our lives. A nice book for accompaniment to iced tea on the porch in the summertime.
In a time when it's trendy to be cynical, A Can of Peas offers a welcome--and perhaps more truth-based--idea of what it means to experience heartache and joy, loss and life, in the imperfect but comforting arms of community. Optimistic without being inauthentic, Peter and Mae's hope-filled story inspires us to preserve that part of American life that has not (as word on the street may have it) entirely disappeared.
A Can Of Peas by Traci DePree combines humor, encouragement, tears and wisdom all expressed through the lives of realistic, well-developed characters. For the first time in my life I found myself understanding (and even longing for) a farm country lifestyle. I hope we see many more books from this gifted author.
Traci DePree has created a charming story that held me captive from page one and didn't let me go until the last page was turned! I fell in love with the characters and the town of Lake Emily. I can't wait to read more of Traci's work.
