Daniel Hecht's story made me fall in love . . . In times of darkness, a story like this gives light, and strength, and hope.

          -- Laurie R. King, New York Times bestselling author of

             The Beekeeper's Apprentice and 25 other novels.

Hecht's smooth prose is punctuated with keen observations of both humanity and the natural world. [On Brassard's Farm] is a beautifully written homage to a vanishing way of life and a moving story of love and connection.
