Christie Landon: a 30 years old graphic designer. If he can break free of the past, he might find a second chance at happiness. His struggle to make his kids understand about his new reality was really emotional, but at the end i was happy that his kids do not let him down. Born to a Mennonite family, he obeyed his father and took over the family farm, married, and had two children. For me, this was Eli Easton doing what she does best, which is writing excellent love stories with a romance I can believe in. Christie was the perfect match for David in every way.
Can't say I loved the plot device used why I rounded down and not up , but I loved everything else so much I can forgive it. Second Harvest is committed to providing free healthy food to anyone in need. I so much enjoy to be with her warmhearted and amusing sweet characters every single time. If you're looking for a slow-burn romance, I'd recommend 'A Second Harvest'! It was so shallow, so transient. Christie and David bond over food, bales of hay, and running. He also rediscovered a love for cooking, so it was only natural for him to share that love with his new friend. When his best friend overdoses, Christie resolves to take a break from the city.
David Fisher has lived by the rules all his life. He's a graphic designer, thirty years old, and his life has consisted of working hard and partying very hard on the weekends. Christie is sexually attracted to silver-fox David while David can't quite wrap is head around the way Christie makes him feel. Especially when it comes with the sexual tension exuding between these two. He names his cows, even though he knows he shouldn't. When does he get to experience the things he sees and reads in his prized National Geographic magazines? A lovely tale of second chances and living your truth. However, he also belongs to a deeply conservative community of Mennonites, so Christie keeps his mouth shut about being gay.
Two men which starts as new neighbors, soon are shy acquaintances, becomes dear friends and ends up as lovers for life? But with Christie he finally has to acknowledge his true self. David sighed, letting his head fall to the side. I want to thank to my friend Christell for her recommendation. A bit religiously, but not too much. Living in our region can be expensive. However, deep inside, he feels lonely surrounded only by his animals and his 2 suppressed longing for geography and men.
His church and community abhor the Homosexuals, so all his life David has kept his desires under lock and key. Both characters handled everything with a lot of grace, and I liked seeing them weather tough times and family problems. Everything about David screamed straight and even if Christie told himself they can be only friends, the looks, the gestures, it all got him wondering if he's daydreaming or it really can be more between them. I loved how they fell for each other - through their dinner dates. Now with both his kids in college and his wife deceased, he runs his farm alone and without joy, counting off the days of a life half-lived. And David Fischer is living a life of desperation, a life as a good Mennonite father and widower working the dairy farm he inherited from his father.
He loves to party, taking occasionally some drugs or sleeping around with a lot of strangers. David, once realizing and accepting what he wanted, became the hero for me in this story. This was such a lovely story. So I have to caution that this is a very subjective opinion being expressed here. The man is kind, shy and interested in the world beyond his farm that he never got to see due to his duties and his family. No drama well until the end.
I loved seeing the world through his eyes and took joy in his happiness. But he's never lived for himself. This book in not without a bit of angst. Christie, as well, is brave and true. Quickly done and mostly told in a quite lighthearted way.
When he gets a new neighbour, David's forced to confront a part of himself that he had buried long ago - his homosexuality. Overall, this was a very enjoyable read, and an excellent start to Easton's new series. It was a perfect love story between two men lacking companionship and acceptance and finding it in each other. Men that like to eat and make good food to each other. Now with both his kids in college and his wife deceased, he runs his farm alone and without joy, counting off the days of a life half-lived. I highly recommend this book! Second Harvest offers a number of free food resources. I'm a sucker for small-town romances.
David and Christie in A Second Harvest are both adults and self-sufficient, making their own money and living alone. It takes skill to do this well. A very sweet and touching story about coming out and second chances. Both are a little lonely and share meals and chores and conversation that will give you that warm 'n fuzzy feeling. Take a 41 year old silver fox, with an extremely compassionate heart and a whole lot of repressed emotions.
David has always lived for others: his strict father, his late wife, his two children, his farm, his community, his church. David finds himself really just going through the motions of running the family farm. . And since Eli Easton is another of my favorites, I wanted to try this one too. When Christie and David struck up a friendship, everything felt so natural. He is who he is and makes no apologies. Her website in You can email her at eli elieaston.
