Book Beginnings: Bootstrapper

Book Beginnings on Friday is a meme hosted by Gilion at Rose City Reader. Anyone can participate; just share the opening sentence of your current read, making sure that you include the title and author so others know what you're reading.

Bootstrapper: From Broke to Badass on a Northern Michigan Farm by Mardi Jo Link

"A perfectly bonny summer morning on the farm and I'm just this side of plowed."

 So she starts off with a pun, but she has a pretty good reason: she's in the midst of a divorce and her soon-to-be-ex-husband has moved across the street, which is unreasonable in any situation, but when you're on a farm with very few neighbors, it feels even more unreasonable.

Across the street? What trouble will lurk there?

Too close for comfort.

Hope you enjoy the book.

Thanks for sharing.
