The Farmer's Daughter is a romance novella written from a narrator's perspective, allowing the reader to feel interactive within the story. This well-written romance novel had me hooked from the very first page. Joe Giampaolo has created a page-turning story that had me hoping for a happy ending from the second the main characters were introduced to me. The writing is so descriptive and that makes it easy for you to imagine the scenes clearly in your head. This isn't the typical genre I usually go for but once I read the synopsis, it had me intrigued, and I knew I wanted to read the book immediately. So much happens in the story and you lose yourself in the world Joe Giampaolo has invented. There were no flaws in the writing and it comes across as highly professional. Joe Giampaolo has amazing writing talent and I hope to see more of his work.


Joyful read. A delight from start to finish


Beautifully written. The author has in depth knowledge of the period. The characters, and scenes are well described. The reader will be satisfied!


I loved this book. It was such a treat to to read stories filled with detailed images and poetic language. Fans of Jane Austen will enjoy this lovely romance.
