Synopsis

Pull up a seat at the Common Table and enjoy a humorously heart-warming walk down the seemingly pristine and orderly streets of the small rural town of Lovejoy, precariously tucked between progress and pride. When the beloved money-angel to the town, Harlan Garfi eld Newsom, suddenly dies from the sheer exhaustion of caring for the needs of the townspeople, the entire town is sent into panic. In order to protect the town from fi nancial collapse Harlan has left an unconventional Last Will requiring seven “unique” members— comprised of Mennonites, business owners, and town offi cials—to launch The Ample Harvest Project which can make Lovejoy a destination attraction rather than a casualty of progress. If they succeed they are promised $125,000. If they fail, they lose the investment and success of their town. This novel is sure to tickle your funny bone and tug at your heart-strings as you accompany the townspeople and witness a cavalcade of dirt swept under everyone’s carpets, and uncover more skeletons than cobwebs in their closets. Food Gypsies of Lovejoy is an unorthodox view of the fi eld-to-fork food movement told through the juicy and the just gossip-mills which binds the townspeople of Lovejoy. Unlike most novels within the genre, it is a touching yet poignant journey witnessed through the eyes of the motley collection of producers and growers within the market tent rather than those on the more civil consumer side of the counter.
