Cold Comfort Farm

Cold Comfort Farm

"We all have relatives that we grow up hearing crazy and not so favorable stories about. This is a story of a young English woman, who after her parents' death decides to temporarily move in with relatives, the Starkadders, at their farm. It's there where Flora Poste encounters her uneducated and filthy family and their friends. This story is a comedic example on not judging a book by its cover—especially when it comes to family and a lesson on learning how to fit into in environment drastically different from what you're accustomed to. Dark, backhandedly witty, hilarious, and heartwarming makes this a great quick and fun read."
