"Theresa Weir married into an Iowa family farm, gaining not just a husband, but a domineering mother-in-law, who controls not just her husband, but her son and the apple farm itself. When the decision is made to start using pesticides aggressively, the consequences are disastrous. In between are moments about Weir’s own sad upbringing. Now the author lives in Minnesota, with chemicals in her past. It may be a quick read, but it packs a lot of emotion."
