    Shit I laughed and cried my way through this book And it’s on my favorites list I didn’t even know who Hilarie was until I started watching Friday Nights In With The Morgan’s I mean I researched Jeffrey way back in the day when he was the dad John Winchester on Supernatural He loved dogs and animals I loved him The end Since watching the show I still didn’t recognize his wife maybe if I watch some of her stuff BUT I damn well fell in love with this woman I don’t even know This book was EVERYTHING We learn about her and Jeffrey the kids the farm the heartaches the triumphs a wonderful community of people and so much I wouldn’t have known about this book unless one of the people on the show didn’t mention her book I jumped on that moment and ordered the book After it set in uarantine for awhile I picked it up and didn’t put it down All I can say I recommend it for so many reasons And after many years they got married and guess who got ordained just to marry them Jensen Ackles See below picture of Jensen’s wife pointing to him in one of the many photos in the book She got the dream life I always wanted but will never get and they went through some really tough times I love them both so much for so many reasons Mel 🖤🐶🐺🐾

    I've never really been big on celebrity memoirs choosing usually to enjoy the characters they play on movies TV concert stages and various other forms of media Sometimes there is such a thing as don't ask don't tell when it comes to these types of things that I fully support Memoirs in general are tricky things for me and very hit or miss In order for me to really invest in someone's life story they have to first convince me that their story is worthy of my time and my moneyI have been a Hilarie Burton fan since I first saw the movie The Secret Life of Bees and though it was a bit part something about her performance really resonated with me and I connected to her character I didn't even know who she was at the time because I never subscribed to the teenie bopper One Tree Hill fandom having had uite enough of the teen angst filled television drama after watching devotedly I might add Dawson's Creek However as a young adult I watched and was a big fan of the television show White Collar and when Hilarie graced us with her presence on that show I was like HER I KNOW HERSo anyway most people know Hilarie because of her hubby Jeffrey Dean Morgan otherwise known asand though I have been a fan of his also she is the one I fangirl over So when I saw that she had written a book I was likeAnd so I reuested it from Netgalley And when I was approved I was likeNo but all joking aside the reason that I wanted this book is not because I love Hilarie Burton as an actress or that I love Jeffrey Dean Morgan as an actor or I love the characters these two have played I reuested and ultimately read this book because of Hilarie's story And let me tell you I LOVED her story It is a story that spoke to me personally and inspired me in so many ways Hilarie's voice is so genuine and I loved reading this story of leaving Hollywood to raise a family in a small provincial town in upstate New York eventually growing that dream from a tiny cabin in the woods to an all out running organic farm animals plants and allThere was a candor to her writing that I appreciated and she really delved into a range of topics not just the nitty gritty of farming life but all of the hard work it takes to make adult relationships work the complex range of emotions caused by fertility issues the ugly side of Hollywood including the #MeToo movement the stress of having a partner whom everyone in the world recognizes and who is gone working for long stretches of time and all of the blood sweat and tears in between Sprinkled here and there were recipes for Dandelion Wine totally making this year her thoughts on coffee tips and tricks for planting growing farming cooking Also a whole section dedicated to manure Yep you know you got a farm girl when she can talk that in depth about well shit And she's also really funny to boot She and Jeffrey really ingrain themselves in their new small town of Rhinebeck New York befriending a lot of people in town volunteering with local projects and even eventually buying a business there in addition to the farm For being celebrities they also really come across as small town farmers and it was a breath of fresh air The way she discussed obstacles they went through in their relationship the struggles of motherhood and work the constant go go go of an actor's lifestyle while just trying to be a regular person through it all was very heartfelt and I really connected to it I also couldn't stop reading There was so much to learn and I felt like I learned with her as she dreamed up a dream for herself She says early on in the book that she never grew up on a farm herself and though she had grandparents who did she herself didn't become a farmer until she saw an opportunity and just started doing it There is a message here that really comes through that life is too short to keep waiting for opportunities to present themselves that if you really want something it is yours to lose or yours to have depending on your perspective I also read this at a crossroads as my partner and I are looking at a move some point in the next year Both of us have always had the dream of moving to West Virginia to live in nature become self sufficient rely less on technology and on the Earth To not necessarily start a farm but grow food for ourselves plant herbs as medicine and be around less people After reading this book I realized that this can happen sooner rather than later and though change is sometimes really scary a lot of time it pulls and twists us into much better humans partners friends parents whatever This book was than just entertaining than just juicy celebrity gossip though I did in fact find out that Ben Affleck is just as creepy IRL as he appears than just I'm famous read my story Hilarie's voice doesn't come off as wanting sympathy or accolades or even acceptance It became evident to me that this book wasn't written about her it was written to express her love for a small town that changed her life her way of thinking It is a love letter to Rhinebeck to her family to all of those people who helped her achieve her goals It was an absolute pleasure to read and a privilege to journey with Hilarie and she bore her heart and soul to the world Thank you to Netgalley for providing an ARC of this wonderful book in exchange for an honest review

    This was such a great memoir I wanted to read it because I love love love books about farms or making a big life change and moving to a uieter place Full disclosure I've never seen One Tree Hill so my interest in this memoir was purely because of the rural aspectThere are so many great things about reading this story but the becoming a farmer aspect was my favorite Hilarie begins the story after One Tree Hill at the beginning of her relationship with Jeffrey Dean Morgan She talks of their common interests and their shared dream of starting over somewhere else I could tell that they both wanted and felt a connection to their new place in rural New York not far from New York City and I could tell they really wanted to build things and put their hands in the dirt There is so much nature in here I loved it so much There is also a lot of food and renovation Hilarie shares about projects she took on that were successful and she talks about projects that didn't turn out so well She talks about finding a small community and really digging into it and I found that I really like all of her friends She talks openly about hard things that happened in her life and she talks about the best things that have happened to her The entire memoir is threaded with friendships and parenting and all of it made my heart warm Really this was the perfect read for me during this #stayathome time This was my immediately before bedtime book and I was careful to dole it out in small portions over an entire month I'm here for every story like this stories where a person makes a goal and achieves it Especially when it involves home renovation gardening and animals I think that fans of Hilarie and Jeff will love this one but I was able to connect to it in a huge way even without having seen them in the shows and movies that they are famous for There is a lot of vulnerability and heart in this book and it was an immensely enjoyable and uplifting read A huge thanks to HarperOneHarperCollins and NetGalley for sending me a copy of this book for review

    This is one of my all time favorite memoirs I read this book because I loved Peyton on One Tree Hill I'm recommending it to everyone because I'm now in love with Hilarie Burton MorganShe tells her story with such honestly and this book is so damn relatable She tells her story of falling in love moving from the city to rural life building and building a life that's good for her family and for her soul Her dealing with infertility and sexual harassment in Hollywood will break your heart but her dealing with it all and coming out stronger than ever before will serve as such an inspiration I loved the recipes and tips sprinkled throughout and will keep the dogeared copy of this on my bookshelf forever After reading this I want to go write garden cook start home improvement projects and just create I loved this book I love her story and I love how I feel after reading it Highly recommended

    A charming memoir that I’d didn’t even know was a celebrity memoir I’m a sucker for stories of rural life and this one checked all those boxes with the added surprise of being about famous people 😉

    I’m not sure I’ve given a memoir 5 stars before save for a Michelle Obama and I don’t think I’ve cried reading a memoir before save for Becoming by MIchelle Obama but this one gets every point of every star Summary A real f—ing marriage I am generally opposedanti to “celebrity couples” but this book made me glad that there’s at least one celebrity couple out there living their life—with acting being a job celebrity an annoying thing they deal with and sharing their humanness so others don’t feel so alone

    This homage to the simple life caught my attention in a NetGalley email Then I read chapter 1 and realized that Hilarie's mother and I both grew up in Pella Iowa Like Hilarie I have a great fondness for that little corner of Iowa and have beloved relatives who still reside there It was fascinating to read about the transformation of Hilarie Jeff's family from LA dwellers to farmers As with all of our lives there are times of triumph times of laughter and times for tears I was drawn in and engaged for most of the book just felt like there were a few times when there was just too much detail on one particular piece like when they took over the sweet shop I also don't know if they ever did officially tie the knot? Anyway I would heartily recommend this on audio especially if you are a fan of Hilarie from One Tree Hill Lethal Weapon or one of her many other acting gigsThank you to HarperCollins and NetGalley for a DRC in exchange for an honest review

    I just finished reading The Rural Diaries by Hilarie Burton and I am in awe of this woman I have been a fan of Hilarie's ever since I watched the show 'One Tree Hill' Whenever I saw her on her shows and interviews she came across as a fierce confident and friendly person and that was fascinating So when I read the first few pages of the story I was captivatedAs I got deeper into the story I loved Hilarie's openness and vulnerability She details everything from her time as a VJ on MTV wanting to be an actress meeting her person in Jeffrey Dean Morgan and finally going after what she wanted One of the main reasons why I loved this book so much is because she reminded me that no matter what path you thought you were on you can follow your dreams and can accomplish it if you take a risk and at least tryIn Hilarie bearing it all she allows readers to see her love of her family friends animals plants and Mischief Farm I may not know Hilarie personally but I know this woman is a hard worker loving mother and she was made to live on Mischief Farm Mischief Farm is a huge part of her growth and it is apparent as she tells us about her ups and downs that occurred at the Farm Hilarie writes with so much heart and truth and I felt that especially when she talked about her town Rhinebeck Her use of imagery made me feel like I was there on the farm I am going to be taking Hilarie's advice and I can't wait to try some of her recipes I give The Rural Diaries 5 stars It is an inspiring and moving memoir about living a life that important to you Through all the obstacles Hilarie made it and reminds us that we can too
