For today’s Sunday Dinner, Lynn Owen has joined us again. Last week, we got to know more about her life on her family’s dairy farm, where she grew up. If you missed the post, you can read it here. Today, she’s planning to share some of the challenges of growing up on a farm as well as her favorite memories.
For today’s Sunday Dinner, I invited Lynn Owen, my mother-in-law. Lynn grew up on a Wisconsin dairy farm and is here to tell us all about it. Dairy farms take center stage in A Strike to the Heart since it’s set during the Wisconsin dairy strikes of 1933.
Welcome to part two of our Sunday Dinner conversation with my mom. If you missed part one of our conversation, you can find it here. This week, my mom continues the stories of life growing up on her family’s dairy farm.
This month, 89 years ago, Wisconsin dairy farmers debated a coordinated strike to protest the low milk prices. The day after Valentine’s Day, the first of three strikes began. The day before, I take readers to fictional Eagle, Wisconsin in To Stand in the Breach. Read on for an excerpt from the first chapter.
Happy Release Day!
Welcome to First Line Friday!
Today I’m featuring
To Stand in the Breach by Danielle Grandinetti.
