Sylvia’s Farm is a contemporary account of rural farm life and all of the sometimes beautiful, always meaningful lessons that it continues to teach by author and farmer Sylvia Jorrín. Told in short vignettes that span over more than a decade, it is a journal of growth, persistence, and the unexpected joys that a new day can bring.
With a devoted following of readers inspired by her underlying appreciation of the world around her, Sylvia’s Farm is the sort of ageless story that any reader can pick up and enjoy. Sylvia’s Farm is, to quote Kirkus Reviews, “The delight-filled education of an out-of-the-clue shepherdess….” consisting of “….fine-grained, honest rural sketches, on a par with Noel Perrin and Don Mitchell.”
The Improbable Shepherd is a continuation of Sylvia’s Farm, covering the past five years of her experiences on a rural sheep farm. This book brings readers closer to the world around them, and to recognize the simple, often hidden beauties it holds. Told in short vignettes and anecdotes, it is a journal of the continuing growth, persistence, and hope that each new day can bring.
The Improbable Shepherd immerses the reader fully in Sylvia’s farm, echoing her own experiences living with the land and includes photos, and illustrations and Sylvia’s personal recipes. Appealing to those who loved Sylvia’s first book and want to return, as well as for all the newcomers who have yet to discover Sylvia’s powerful prose and earnest message, The Improbable Shepherd will inspire you to follow your dreams, whatever they may be.
