Description

Prudence Burns is an overly idealistic Brooklyn girl who has inherited a derelict plot of land named Woefield Farm. Her motley crew of farm hands consists of Earl, an elderly, reclusive bluegrass legend; Seth, an agoraphobic heavy-metal blogger in early recovery from alcoholism; and Sara, an 11-year-old girl with a flock of elite show poultry.

When Prudence is felled by a thyroid condition, things on the farm begin to fall apart, resulting in valiant and sometimes ill-advised attempts to restore domestic bliss. Efforts are complicated by a renegade mule, attempts to turn a hideously ugly child's playhouse into a high-yield roadside farm stand, and an electrical station's worth of crossed wires. Will Prudence get well? Will Seth finally get rid of his pesky virginity? Will Earl rescue Sara? And will anyone, ever, admit they might be wrong?

Told in four highly distinct, unforgettably hilarious, and sometimes heartbreaking voices, Republic of Dirt is about what happens when passions collide with pride and what it takes to save each other, our small part of the planet, and ourselves.

Delightful and hilarious

Wonderful sequel to The Poultry Collective which I read before. Loved all the voices in this one, a perfect first audible experience in my view. Poignant and funny, with endearing characters extremely well portrayed through the different voices. Loved it.

Enjoyable sequel

Loved the first book so much. Laughed out loud. This follow up is just as good. Highly recommend for a lighthearted read.

Funny and heartwarming

I laughed out loud a few times, and greatly enjoyed the flawed very human characters.
