The Measure of Everything
A well crafted fictional account of a real life situation too common
in the USA, the prospect of losing a small town's ambiance along with
its farm lands. Tied to the land and each other in complex ways, the
characters are Ohio angels with halos slightly askew. The truth of this
story made my heart sing.
A brilliant process analysis for all communities who wish to confront
and control urban sprawl.
A story of two men and a village who find their heart's desire -- and
their family roots -- in their own backyard. The characters are original
fiction, but the fight to save the farm is real. And the fight continues,
every day, all across the nation.
It is a great pleasure to read an American novel that takes grassroots
political action seriously. Davis captures both the messy vicissitudes
of human love and error, and how a political movement can develop and
A beautiful tale of the redemptive nature of the human spirit. The Measure
of Everything truly takes measure of the faith, courage, and capacity
to forgive within us all.
