About the Book



"Jake Keiser was living the life in Tampa, Florida, running a high-powered PR firm and juggling drink dates, shopping sprees, and charity galas. But at age thirty-eight, following a failed marriage, a series of miscarriages, and a still-blistering breakup, she began to suffer from extreme anxiety. Hit with the realization that no amount of Botox could fill the hole in her heart, she decided to make the impulse purchase of a lifetime. She bought a farm in rural Mississippi, packed up her Gucci sandals, and moved to the middle of nowhere. As the new owner of a farm, and with only one bar of cell service, Jake begins her search for inner peace. Through trial by fire, she learns to fix a well, haul wood, shoot a gun, and care for over seventy-five animals -- with her own signature style, playing spa music to her goats and naming her hens after fashion designers. The only problem is, she still can't figure out how to truly care for herself. Unable to escape the accumulated pain of her past, Jake hits rock bottom. With nowhere left to run, she's finally forced to confront a bracing reality. The farm won't save her; only she can save herself"--



Book Synopsis



A candid and heartwarming memoir of reinvention about a city girl who trades her career and her heels for five acres and a herd of goats

"Jake Keiser is my favorite kind of woman--gutsy, tenacious, and not afraid to be vulnerable. And the animals are pretty f*cking adorable, too."--Tara Schuster, author of Buy Yourself the F*cking Lilies

Jake Keiser was living the life in Tampa, Florida, running a high-powered PR firm and juggling drink dates, shopping sprees, and charity galas. But at age thirty-eight, following a failed marriage, a series of miscarriages, and a still-blistering breakup, she began to suffer from extreme anxiety. Hit with the realization that no amount of Botox could fill the hole in her heart, she decided to make the impulse purchase of a lifetime and bought a farm in the middle of nowhere, Mississippi.

Suddenly responsible for more than seventy-five animals and five acres of land, and with only one bar of cell service, Jake begins her search for inner peace. She learns to fix a well, haul wood, shoot a gun, and care for baby chicks, goats, turkeys, geese, dogs, and a cat, playing spa music for them when they're sick and naming them after her favorite fashion designers. The only problem is that she still can't figure out how to truly care for herself. Unable to escape the accumulated pain of her past, Jake hits rock bottom. With nowhere left to run, she's finally forced to confront a bracing reality: The farm won't save her. Only she can save herself.

Poignant, hilarious, and utterly charming, Daffodil Hill is for anyone who feels stuck--for those of us strapped to our desks and dreaming of an unconventional life, for those of us searching for something more. Most of all, it is for people who believe that the greatest love story of all is the one we write with ourselves.



Review Quotes




"Jake Keiser is my favorite kind of woman--gutsy, tenacious, and not afraid to be vulnerable. Daffodil Hill is a real, raw story of heartbreak and loss, and the bravery it takes to leave your comfort zone and go after what your truest self desires, to build an authentic, beautiful life. This is a fun, frank, powerful story about freedom. And the animals are pretty f*cking adorable, too."--Tara Schuster, author of Buy Yourself the F*cking Lilies

"Daffodil Hill offers a delightful escape into the wonderfully colorful farm life of Jake Keiser. This unlikely story delivers all the feels, but beware! Keiser makes you want to buy a Prada bag just to let a baby chick sleep in it. While showcasing that special kind of laugh-out-loud crazy that only a Gucci-wearing farm girl could brew, Keiser casts a lovely light on her Mississippi community and explores the perils of a middle-aged single woman trying to break free of all that has kept her caged for too long. A must-read!"--Julie Cantrell, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of Perennials
