In The Merrimack Valley A Farm Trilogy

Forthcoming in October 2024 from Godine (Nonpareil Series #16)

A reissue in one volume of Jane Brox’s acclaimed books – Here and Nowhere Else, Five Thousand Days Like This One, and Clearing Land – which intertwine her family’s story with the quintessentially American history of a New England valley’s immigrants, farmers, and textile workers.

Praise for Jane Brox’s farm trilogy:

“A poignant account of return and recommitment… Brox describes crisply yet with great feeling.”

– NEW YORK TIMES

“Tenderly and specifically, generously and with a refreshing breadth of knowledge… [Jane Brox] recreates the past lyrically and resonantly. Memory is love and cherishing of course; but also, it is a weighing and giving.”

– MARY OLIVER, Pulitzer Prize-winning poet

“A mature…book, thick with emotion but not overwhelmed by it…and reading it…is a genuine pleasure.”

– WASHINGTON POST

“Her precise and eloquent prose… strikes unerringly through sentiment and convention to the heart of the matter.”

– CHICAGO TRIBUNE
