A Country Called Home is a powerful novel of young love and rural isolation. Thomas Deracotte is just out of medical school, and he and his pregnant wife, Helen, have their whole future mapped out for them in upper-crust Connecticut. But they are dreamers, and they set out to create their own farm in rural Idaho instead. An extraordinary story of wide-eyed idealism, lost hope, and hard-won redemption, A Country Called Home is a testament to the power of family—the family we are born to and the family we create.
