The secret they've kept can either bring them together or tear them apart. Youngest sibling and only sister, Kim Luchetti returns to the Illinois family farm after her father's heart attack. Eight years ago she vowed never to return, believing only distance would allow her to forget the tragedy that broke her heart. Returning means she must face everyone's questions, including those of her first love, Brian Riley, the only one who knows her secret. Brian has always loved Kim, despite his hurt and anger over her having abandoned him when he needed her the most. When she appears at his farm, surprise causes him to tumble off the barn roof and break both of his wrists. Kim's guilt makes her agree to stay and help him until he is healed. Living in such close proximity forces Kim and Brian to face the past and their unresolved feelings. Will talking about what happened help them heal? Or will the memories of their heartbreak keep them apart forever? The Farmer's Wife is the first book in the six book Luchettis Series by New York Times Best Selling author Lori Handeland.
