Rowan Farm

Rowan Farm by Margot Benary-Isbert

The sequel to The Ark. Spoilers ahead.

In post World War II Germany, Margret and her family are settled on the title farm, her father trying to practice again as a doctor but he has to be certified and needs shoes, they are all coping with the influx of refugees, a new schoolteacher is needed because the school has doubled, there are many problems with food and money, all of them have adventures, Margret's older brother and the son of the farmer's owner are both taken with a girl, animals are born and tended, work is done on the farm, and more.

A slice of life in some very trying time.
