For this first Sunday Dinner, I invited my mom to join us. I grew up on some of the stories she’s about to tell you, so I’m excited for her tell you about life on a dairy farm. Especially since those stories helped inspire A Strike to the Heart, the story of a dairy farmer’s daughter who must decide whether to trust her family or the man who saves her life.
