Book of the Month, Nov. 2021 - Epitaph for a Peach

November 2021 — Epitaph for a Peach

We’ve made it to Halloween, which seems to unofficially kick off the slide into the holiday season. Since it’s such a busy time of year, we’re always on the lookout for a lighter read to fit the mood of the season. November’s selection is Epitaph for a Peach: Four Seasons on My Family Farm by David Masumoto.

While we couldn’t find an official summary for the book, the title comes to us highly recommended. Here’s a promising review we found online:

A lyrical, sensuous and thoroughly engrossing memoir of one critical year in the life of an organic peach farmer, Epitaph for a Peach is “a delightful narrative . . . with poetic flair and a sense of humor” (Library Journal).
