"Perfectly balancing the clothes line of educational and entertaining, Alissa has us wanting to flee the city in our rubber boots, and eat peas in the garden. This book is a must-have guide for all those ready to leave the city."
-Ben Ashby, Editor-in-Chief of FOLK Magazine
"This book is an invaluable road map for anyone thinking of taking the leap to the country. Honest, informative, engaging and fun to read, it will inspire you to break your city chains and go country."
-Josh Kilmer-Purcell & Brent Ridge, Founders of Beekman 1802
"Alissa delivers 'real talk' about what country life is like. I laughed, beamed and sometimes cringed with recognition at Alissa's open-eyed (but never starry-eyed!) town-to-country take."
-Courtney Maum, Bestselling author of "I Am Having So Much Fun Here Without You" and "Touch"
