HARVEST gives us insight into the life of a farm run on a small scale, by a family, with support from the community. It's about the bucolic scenes of maple-syrup gathering and a young boy trailing his parents, helping with chores. But it's also about the day-to-day reality of family life: arguments over work, money, and child-rearing, as well as disputes over who is going to take produce to market or how many animals to keep. Life and death are in stark relief here, but ultimately HARVEST is about relationships: the relationship between husband and wife,
parent and child, man and land. It's a book that will surprise and ultimately captivate you.
