June 30, 2017 (PRLEAP.COM) Entertainment NewsJune 30, 2017 - Hardin Farm, a new book by Jean Kipfer, has been released by Dorrance Publishing Co., Inc.
In 1921 Hardin Farm is a prosperous but unhappy place. Paul and Anna Hardin are uniquely attached, as only those siblings can be who are raised without their mothers. Sam Hardin's three wives are buried side by side in the cemetery by the lake, and he sees no reason to find another. Anna keeps the house clean and is a good cook, and since she'd gotten older, he's thought of even more things she can do for him. Strangely, Sam Hardin disappears never to be found and Anna falls into a strange sleep from which she cannot be awaken. The Church folk put Anna in the care of two doctors in Chicago, practitioners of the new science of psychiatry. But Paul is left to wallow in the mystery of their father's disappearance until many years later when the two siblings meet again on Hardin Farm.
