At her husband’s prompting, suburban mom and New York career woman Susan McCorkindale agreed to give up her stressful six-figure job. Together, they headed down south to a 500-acre beef cattle farm, and never looked back. Well, he didn’t look back. She did. A lot.
From playing “spot the religious billboard” on the drive to rural Virginia, to planning bright-orange hunter-resistant wardrobes for the kids (“We moved here to get away from the madness of Manhattan only to risk getting popped on our own property”), Confessions of a Counterfeit Farm Girl is her hilarious account of how a city girl learned the hard way that Manolos and manure just don’t mix.
“[McCorkindale] calls herself counterfeit but she is truly the real thing: witty, startling social commentary in a flawless voice.”
