Calves In The Mud Room
Jerome O Brown
This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
Wade Summers wants nothing more than to go on his date tonight with high school hottie Glory Schoonover.
Unfortunately, a fierce February blizzard's blown in and a couple of first-time heifers are calving early. Way too early.
And Wade's never delivered a calf all by himself before. (His grandfather was always there to show him the way).
Simmering under the teenage hormones and unexpected birthing is a conflicted son who finally confronts
the abuse of his shady stepfather and a betrayal by his somewhat disengaged mom.
Kirkus Reviews called this coming-of-age story "An exciting, elegant debut."
It's rough around the edges, full of brute hardship, raw strength, and pure heart.
