A registered dietitian, nurse, and certified EMT, Josephine DeFalco divides her time on a small, organic, urban farm in Scotsdale, Arizona and a newly acquired working farm in Wisconsin.

But the struggle of day-to-day living forces her to open her eyes to the suffering and bigotry surrounding the working class. When she falls in love with a working man and finds herself shunned by her family and friends, she must decide whether to follow the rules of society or her heart.
