Homecoming by Leeann Minogue
Jerry Wilson has always planned to pass his family farm on to the next generation. When Jerry’s broken leg spurs him and his wife Marlene to retire sooner than expected, the couple moves to a new home in nearby Stony Valley and their son Greg comes home from the city to take over the farm. But Jerry and Marlene soon find out that retirement is not always as idyllic as it looks in the commercials…Marlene is not sure how to fill her days, and ends up working with her old enemy Norma to plan the upcoming Stony Valley Centennial Homecoming celebrations. And after a lifetime farming, Jerry has difficulty letting his son make the decisions. Tension builds between father and son until Greg finally hits the breaking point, and packs his bags.
