Barn Stories is a collection of creative nonfiction stories drawn from the author’s fifteen years managing a horse boarding business on a farm in upstate New York. The stories chronicle her experiences with a struggling business and a cast of intriguing characters – both animal and human – whose lives intersect under the gable roof of a two-hundred-year-old barn. Barn Stories is strongly about place, and about the place barns hold in our individual and collective memories. A place we all, in our way, want to belong to.
