What happens when you are divorcing, are raising three boys, have no money, but want to hang on to your dream of living in a half-renovated farmhouse? Find out in Bootstrapper: From Broke to Badass on a Northern Michigan Farm. You will find the author tackling aggressive roosters, a failed well pump, and bone-freezing cold. Her love for her boys is heartwarming and her adventures are always told with a sense of humor — even if we occasionally wonder how she puts herself in difficult situations. Why raise chickens for meat if you are afraid of killing them? And why hang on to the farmhouse that is the root of all financial issues she has to face?
