Viqui Litman authors a sassy, hilarious novel of four Texan women in The Ladies Farm. Upbeat and intelligent, Litman’s story is a rollicking good time from beginning to end. When four divorced and widowed friends, Pauline, Della, Kat and Rita, decide to open a retreat especially for women who just need to get away from it all, The Ladies Farm is born. Situated beside a lazy river in the idyllic location of Sydonia, Texas, The Ladies Farm seems poised for great success. Then one day Barbara Morrison, the rich widow of Della’s secret lover, arrives in her bright red T-Bird--and she’s brought a whole load of trouble with her. Sometimes brazen, sometimes sweet, Viqui Litman’s story is an honest and true-to-life portrait of the bonds among four middle-aged women. Narrator Cynthia Darlow’s voice provides listeners with the perfect accent.
