When his wife abandoned him, Ben Granger found himself faced with parenting six daughters without the help of their mother. The daughters were hardworking, loyal, and obedient, but sometimes mischievous. The father worked them like men on his farm; however, his nurturing guidance enabled them to retain their femininity. An undaunted man, he stood tall, but alone while enduring the ordeals of family separation, financial hardship, crop failures, and declining health.
Filled with adversity, sadness, and humor, Maiden Harvest is a poignant account of a simple farmer’s unflinching courage and perseverance. But the essence of the story extends beyond the mere steadfast character of a courageous man. It is also about the enduring power of unusual family love―the uncommon bond that exists between a father and his daughters, an attachment so strong that neither distance, nor time, nor even death can ever sever the ties that bind them together in an abiding love.
