The Wrights have just packed up their little house in the city and are moving to a 40-year-old ranch house on 10 acres of land in the middle of the citrus growing community of Riverside. The country life is just what they’ve always dreamed of, but can they adjust? Can their animals survive the country?
Coyotes, hawks, owls, and creepy crawly things that go bump in the night have them wondering. Lindsay has been praying for a horse of her own. Lindsay’s brother Jeffrey is still in a body cast from a bad accident, and Beau, the youngest of all, is on the lookout for lizards and…snakes! Just when they begin to settle in, they learn country life isn’t perfect after all. Can it be true? Is there crime in the country?
