Angela Foster, Farm Girls, (RiverPlace Press)

If you learned to swear in Norwegian or shared a two-holer outhouse with your cousin, you’ll enjoy the poetry and prose of these sisters. From memories of Norwegian ancestors and growing up on a Minnesota dairy farm to dreams of Oprah’s couch and rapping with Eminem, Farm Girls will take you back to the days of rural schools, ‘moon light, star light, hope to see a ghost tonight’, and the auction of the family farm.
