The Years That The Locust Hath Eaten
Doris Pearlman is a sixty nine year old rich, widowed New Yorker who is tossed into motherhood through the court appointed guardianship of her niece’s three infant children: Angela age four, Lionel age three, and Cheryl age two. To divert them from exposure to the entanglement of urban life, Doris sets her attentions on rural living. With her nanny in tow, the five move to the church owned farm in James City County, Virginia and into a home that she and her late husband erected thirty years earlier. Upon arrival, she learns that the land is extremely underdeveloped and a target for government takeover through condemnation and Eminent Domain. To protect the land as well as restore “the years that the locust hath eaten”, Doris quickly devises a challenging plan in an attempt to transform the dilapidated property into a producing farm and tourist attraction, thus saving the greatest piece of historical legacy that the church has ever acquired.
