This was such a great memoir I wanted to read it because I love love love books about farms or making a big life change and moving to a uieter place Full disclosure I ve never seen One Tree Hill so my interest in this memoir was purely because of the rural aspectThere are so many great things about reading this story but the becoming a farmer aspect was my favorite Hilarie begins the story after One Tree Hill at the beginning of her relationship with Jeffrey Dean Morgan She talks of their common interests and their shared dream of starting over somewhere else I could tell that they both wanted and felt a connection to their new place in rural New York not far from New York City and I could tell they really wanted to build things and put their hands in the dirt There is so much nature in here I loved it so much There is also a lot of food and renovation Hilarie shares about projects she took on that were successful and she talks about projects that didn t turn out so well She talks about finding a small community and really digging into it and I found that I really like all of her friends She talks openly about hard things that happened in her life and she talks about the best things that have happened to her The entire memoir is threaded with friendships and parenting and all of it made my heart warm Really this was the perfect read for me during this stayathome time This was my immediately before bedtime book and I was careful to dole it out in small portions over an entire month I m here for every story like this stories where a person makes a goal and achieves it Especially when it involves home renovation gardening and animals I think that fans of Hilarie and Jeff will love this one but I was able to connect to it in a huge way even without having seen them in the shows and movies that they are famous for There is a lot of vulnerability and heart in this book and it was an immensely enjoyable and uplifting read A huge thanks to HarperOneHarperCollins and NetGalley for sending me a copy of this book for review

I ve never really been big on celebrity memoirs choosing usually to enjoy the characters they play on movies TV concert stages and various other forms of media Sometimes there is such a thing as don t ask don t tell when it comes to these types of things that I fully support Memoirs in general are tricky things for me and very hit or miss In order for me to really invest in someone s life story they have to first convince me that their story is worthy of my time and my moneyI have been a Hilarie Burton fan since I first saw the movie The Secret Life of Bees and though it was a bit part something about her performance really resonated with me and I connected to her character I didn t even know who she was at the time because I never subscribed to the teenie bopper One Tree Hill fandom having had uite enough of the teen angst filled television drama after watching devotedly I might add Dawson s Creek However as a young adult I watched and was a big fan of the television show White Collar and when Hilarie graced us with her presence on that show I was like HER I KNOW HERSo anyway most people know Hilarie because of her hubby Jeffrey Dean Morgan otherwise known asand though I have been a fan of his also she is the one I fangirl over So when I saw that she had written a book I was likeAnd so I reuested it from Netgalley And when I was approved I was likeNo but all joking aside the reason that I wanted this book is not because I love Hilarie Burton as an actress or that I love Jeffrey Dean Morgan as an actor or I love the characters these two have played I reuested and ultimately read this book because of Hilarie s story And let me tell you I LOVED her story It is a story that spoke to me personally and inspired me in so many ways Hilarie s voice is so genuine and I loved reading this story of leaving Hollywood to raise a family in a small provincial town in upstate New York eventually growing that dream from a tiny cabin in the woods to an all out running organic farm animals plants and allThere was a candor to her writing that I appreciated and she really delved into a range of topics not just the nitty gritty of farming life but all of the hard work it takes to make adult relationships work the complex range of emotions caused by fertility issues the ugly side of Hollywood including the MeToo movement the stress of having a partner whom everyone in the world recognizes and who is gone working for long stretches of time and all of the blood sweat and tears in between Sprinkled here and there were recipes for Dandelion Wine totally making this year her thoughts on coffee tips and tricks for planting growing farming cooking Also a whole section dedicated to manure Yep you know you got a farm girl when she can talk that in depth about well shit And she s also really funny to boot She and Jeffrey really ingrain themselves in their new small town of Rhinebeck New York befriending a lot of people in town volunteering with local projects and even eventually buying a business there in addition to the farm For being celebrities they also really come across as small town farmers and it was a breath of fresh air The way she discussed obstacles they went through in their relationship the struggles of motherhood and work the constant go go go of an actor s lifestyle while just trying to be a regular person through it all was very heartfelt and I really connected to it I also couldn t stop reading There was so much to learn and I felt like I learned with her as she dreamed up a dream for herself She says early on in the book that she never grew up on a farm herself and though she had grandparents who did she herself didn t become a farmer until she saw an opportunity and just started doing it There is a message here that really comes through that life is too short to keep waiting for opportunities to present themselves that if you really want something it is yours to lose or yours to have depending on your perspective I also read this at a crossroads as my partner and I are looking at a move some point in the next year Both of us have always had the dream of moving to West Virginia to live in nature become self sufficient rely less on technology and on the Earth To not necessarily start a farm but grow food for ourselves plant herbs as medicine and be around less people After reading this book I realized that this can happen sooner rather than later and though change is sometimes really scary a lot of time it pulls and twists us into much better humans partners friends parents whatever This book was than just entertaining than just juicy celebrity gossip though I did in fact find out that Ben Affleck is just as creepy IRL as he appears than just I m famous read my story Hilarie s voice doesn t come off as wanting sympathy or accolades or even acceptance It became evident to me that this book wasn t written about her it was written to express her love for a small town that changed her life her way of thinking It is a love letter to Rhinebeck to her family to all of those people who helped her achieve her goals It was an absolute pleasure to read and a privilege to journey with Hilarie and she bore her heart and soul to the world Thank you to Netgalley for providing an ARC of this wonderful book in exchange for an honest review
