Little Joe’s family has been saving money for a long time, and they are finally able to follow their dream of buying a 40-acre farm. As the only African American family in the rural town in the mid-1900s, they face challenges, but they face them with a kindness and optimism that changes the hearts of those around them. This charming story of friendship between races and neighbors is a treasure. The writing is witty and beautiful, and the characters are delightful.
