Description: Barbara Holland's new book, Bingo Night at the Fire Hall, showcases what you need to know about what makes rural life worth living. Tracking her own flight from big city stresses to life in a small town in the Virginia Blue Ridge Mountains, she reveals how she learned the secrets of a peculiarly paradisiacal world. She wittily recounts her discovery of a world where people, even though suspicious of strangers, actually like each other, tolerate one another's differences, and don't much care about money or status ... a world in which teenagers are both fun and polite, even crime-free -- a world in which people care for each other.

Holland's adventures of living a single life, a rural life, recount her writing obits for the local paper, finding shelter in a bar during a blizzard, even trying to get her car fixed after squirrels stash acorns in her engine. It is a life that seems almost impossible today.

Not since Mr. Blandings Builds His Dream House or A Year in Provence has such a wicked, delightful urban pen etched such a fascinating portrait of rural living. Alas, Barbara Holland fears her Eden is about to disappear as suburbs swell into this bucolic land.

This is pure American fun, mischief, and wisdom.
