Prairie Hill

Prairie Hill by Fred Burwell

“Prairie Hill” is a warmhearted tale of redemption and love set in small town Wisconsin circa 1980. Two troubled young people meet while working at the Pullet Surprize, a restored inn with the best chicken in town. Newcomer Jimmy Lathrop tries to keep a low profile, but his extra job as feathered mascot for the minor league Cobb Kernels brings notoriety instead. Jenny Diggles, engaged to the Kernels’ ambitious general manager, bides her time as a waitress and dreams of native wildflowers and heirloom gardens. Their growing friendship leads to self-discovery and change and enriches the lives of their friends. “Prairie Hill,” with its vintage baseball stadium and a threatened, long-forgotten tall-grass prairie, provides a vivid setting for a cast of colorful, endearing characters. $0.99 on Kindle.
