In a self-deprecating fashion, Mud Season chronicles Ellen Stimson’s transition from city life to rickety Vermont farmhouse.
When she decides she wants to own and operate the old-fashioned village store in idyllic Dorset, pop. 2,036, one of the oldest continually operating country stores in the country, she learns the hard way that “improvements” are not always welcomed warmly by folks who like things just fine the way they’d always been.
The books asks the question - can the citified newcomer turn the tide of mistrust before she ruins the business altogether? Ellen Stimson will be at Northshire Bookstore in Saratoga on Saturday night at 7PM.
