Foster dreams of getting away, but after his father’s death, he has to take over the family dairy farm. It soon becomes clear his father hasn’t been doing the best job of running it, so not only does Foster need to take over the day-to-day operations, he also needs to find new ways of bringing in revenue.
Javi has no time to dream. He and his family are migrant workers, and daily survival is a struggle, so they travel to anywhere they can get work. When they arrive in their old van, Foster arranges for Javi to help him on the farm.
To Javi’s surprise, Foster listens to his ideas and actually puts them into action. Over days that turn into weeks, they grow to like and then care for each other, but they come from two very different worlds, and they both have responsibilities to their families that neither can walk away from. Is it possible for them to discover a dream they can share? Perhaps they can plant their own and nurture it together to see it grow, if their different backgrounds don’t separate them forever.
I haven’t read anything by Andrew Grey for several years. I liked a lot of his early stuff but started to find his stuff on the repetitive side. However, I decided to give him another chance and was pleased I did.
Planting His Dream was a nice and sweet comfort listen. There’s a fair amount of information on farming, which I did for a short time, and what Grey wrote seems to fit with my limited knowledge. So that’s definite plus.
Foster and Javi were an entertaining couple and I liked seeing how they got together.
A definite comfort read and recommended.
The narration didn’t blow me away but I enjoyed listening to Derrick McClain. He did well with the various voices. My one issue is that he didn’t give Javi even the slightest Hispanic accent.
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the audiobook of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
