Farmer’s Daughter — And I Can Prove It is a humorous reflection on growing up in the 1950s and ‘60s on an Iowa farm. Satirizing a 40th high school reunion, author Resa Willis reminisces about life lessons rooted in rural life: hard work, education, family, community, and, of course, the old joke — sex!
The chapters are peppered with eccentric relatives and quirky townsfolk, including an aunt who spent the day in a tree with her packed suitcase, waiting for the end of the world; an uncle who believed that the phone company plotted JFK’s assassination; the school bus driver whose false teeth would fly from his mouth as he harangued his young passengers; and many more!
Willis recounts how the farm community came together at harvest times, and pays homage to her hard-working, no-nonsense parents who fostered her love of literature and music.
The humorous vignettes shared in Farmer’s Daughter will bring smiles to readers of both rural and urban backgrounds. Even if “you can’t go home again,” home is always with you, and Resa Willis proves it!
