Pulling Down the Barn: Anne-Marie Oomen
She´ll risk anything to save her child…even the truth. It´s taken nine years and a cross-country move, but Audra Valentine Wheyton has kept her secrets safe. She´s created the perfect life - a husband who loves her, a daughter she adores, and a position as head writer for an award-winning daytime soap. When her husband dies suddenly, Audra returns to her hometown for the funeral and faces a community that has not forgotten her meager beginnings and a man who has never forgiven her for marrying his brother. Jack Wheyton is a successful pediatric neurosurgeon who is about to become engaged when Audra walks back into his life with her daughter. He forgave his brother long ago for taking something that had been his, something he hadn´t even realized he wanted until it was gone. But forgiving Audra is another story…and forgetting her? Near impossible. When a shattering illness strikes Audra´s daughter, she turns to Jack to save her child and risks exposing a secret that will change their lives forever. 1. Language: English.

Pulling Down the Barn eloquently recalls author Anne-Marie Oomen´s personal journey as she discovers herself an outsider on her family farm located in western Michigan´s Oceana County, in the township of Elbridge - a couple hundred acres in the middle of rural America. Written as a series of heartfelt interlocking narratives, this collection of essays portrays the realities of farm life: haying, picking asparagus and cherries, the machinery of tractors and pickers; but each chapter also touches upon the more ethereal and rarely articulated: the stoic love that permeates a family, the farmer´s struggle with identity, and the way land can shape a childhood. With its rich language and style, Pulling Down the Barn engrosses the listener in Oomen´s memories - setting beauty and wonder against work and loss - and paints a poignant portrait of growing up in rural Michigan. Winner of the Michigan Notable Book Awards. The book is published by Wayne State University Press. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Michelle Babb.

In with the good, out with the bad. At the four seasons, Jenna had first had them go to what is called a romantic retreat couples massage. First, they were put into a Jacuzzi. Anne had never been in one of these before, and she was amazed. It was very hot, and when they first stepped in, Anne gasped, pulling her toes back out. They lowered the temperature, and raised it a little bit as they continued. There were cucumbers put over their eyes, and little pillows put behind their heads, so that they were comfortable as they laid back. They were both naked. There were bikinis or one piece there for them, if they chose, but Jenna told Anne that she preferred to be naked. ´´It´s a whole new experience. You feel totally free.´´ There was soft music playing in the background, and Anne took a deep breath, and let it back out again. ´´In with the good, out with the bad.´´ Jenna said. ´´Huh?´´ Anne asked, having absolutely no idea what she was talking about. ´´When you take deep breaths like that, it´s in with the good. You are breathing in all of the good feelings, moods, and vibes. What out with the bad means is that you are blowing out all of the bad moods, spirits, and ideas that you have in your mind.´´ Anne thought about this for a moment, before responding. 1.
