Book Review: Once Upon a Farm by Rory Feek
Once Upon a Farm is written by Rory Feek and published by W Publishing Group.
When I began reading Once Upon a Farm, I didn't know whether this book of remembrances and thoughts would be a tear-jerker or not. In some ways it is not, but at other times, when something hits me just so, it is. I have read every word with anticipation of what Rory Feek was going to say next. And sometimes I braced myself before delving into the next chapter.
The book contains many memories and bits of wisdom gleaned from happy, sometimes sad, and always meaningful times. The memories of Joey, his late wife, are especially poignant and make me feel sad. Sad because she was taken much too early. Yet, somehow, I feel joy too. Joy, because she is in the presence of God. She believed and loved Jesus and is now with Him. That makes me feel very good.
Rory Feek is not kidding when he says that his gift lies in telling stories. He has written numerous "stories" in song as well as in book form. He knows how to be real and yet keep you wanting to hear more. His stories touch the heart. Once Upon a Farm is no different.
The book contains a section in the middle of pictures of the Feek family and the family farm.
I really enjoyed reading Once Upon a Farm. Rory is a great author.
