Summary
"A wheelbarrow, a cable drum, gardening tools, and a pickaxe are unusual items on a wedding registry. They're what Mac and Siggy, a German professional couple, need to fulfill their dream of organic gardening. But Siggy doesn't know that Mac is harboring secret dreams of full scale farming and emigrating to seek a healthier and simpler life in an unspoiled country: Ireland. After two babies and the Chernobyl meltdown in 1987 they are scared enough to make big changes. They buy a farm in Tipperary, and give up their jobs, friends and home to raise their children in an unpolluted environment. More than just fleeing the nuclear threats, they want to blaze a new path to wholesome, sustainable living. A period of intense learning and aquiring new skills follow: how to raise chickens, pluck geese, breed cattle and sheep, and how to grow all kinds of vegetables. Soon they realize that farming means a relentless workload with no time off. They almost kill themselves to produce healthy food. [This book] is a modern woman's journey from a sophisticated, hectic urban life in western Germany seemingly back in time to a lifestyle that may be rustic, so different but just as comples as a modern European professional's. It's the story of a woman who sacrifices her own dreams for the sake of her family until she discovers her own path." -- cover
