AbstractHistoryArchive Description

When Anke launches her green balloon with an envelope of seeds attached, and Freddie finds it, they have no idea how the event will change their lives and transform the bare hills of Freddie's farm forever. This city girl and country boy are as different as two people can be, but Freddie's first blunt letter begins a friendship that grows over the years, through all the adventures and challenges that come their way.
