Experience the timeless love, music, and spirituality of author Charlotte S. Snead’s family-centered and heavenly classic WINSLOW FARM.

When Gabe Winslow learns of his parents’ death in an automobile accident, he resigns from the army and returns home from Afghanistan to his family farm in Lost Creek, West Virginia. Brian, Gabe’s younger brother with Down syndrome, would be left alone with nobody to care for him without this sacrifice from Gabe. With the brothers not knowing each other very well, and with them forced to sell their farm to a new, mysterious owner while they stay on as caretakers, their future and that of the farm looks incredibly bleak. Only a miracle can save them.

After Gabe and Brian form a close, unbreakable bond while building their new caretaker’s cottage on the property, they nervously await the arrival of the farm’s new owner. The new owner steps out of a limousine and into their hearts, strolling down Winslow Farm’s main road with cornflower blue eyes and a familiar song on her lips. The young and vibrant, twenty-something, bluegrass-singing star Joy Thomas has purchased Winslow Farm as her escape from a crazy life as a rising star in Nashville. She brings with her music and passion, and she brings out of Gabe and Brian love and something divine—something tangibly divine.

Together, the trio of Joy, Gabe, and Brian bring Winslow Farm back to life. They bring a wealth of new people with diverse personalities to the farm, they record award-winning music there, they defend Joy from a dangerous stalker, they tangle with bears, they renovate and redecorate, and they accept, love, and work with Brian as he struggles to cope with his disabilities and with the loss of his parents. Slowly, they build a loving family at Winslow Farm. And throughout it all, people discover that Gabe possesses a unique, otherworldly talent that might help him keep the farm safe from evil forever. But will Gabe fully realize this talent in time to do so, or will tragedy strike the farm again?
