Farmwives 2
An Inspiring Look at the Lives of the New Canadian Farmwives
by Billi J Miller

In January 2016, Billi J Miller launched her first published book (a four-and-a-half year labour of love) celebrating “traditional” farmwives (between the ages of fifty-five and ninety) for their remarkable contributions to their families, farms, and to the wider scope of Canadian heritage. Farmwives in Profile: 17 Women, 17 Candid Questions about their Lives, Photos & Recipes has been hailed a “gem” for its candid stories, delicious straight-from-the-farm-kitchen recipes, and Miller’s timeless photographs of the women. Now it’s the “next generations” turn. Farmwives 2: An Inspiring Look at the Lives of the New Canadian Farmwives is the highly anticipated follow-up that hones in on women in their twenties to fifties. This time, Miller interviews women from across the country— from British Columbia all the way to Newfoundland—broadening not only the look at Canada’s family farms but, women’s perspectives on this evolving role. "Farmwives 2" is loaded with all-new recipes, many more inspiring interviews, and features a special "Food for Thought" section filled with input by professionals you won't want to miss. Miller says she walked into this life eight years ago with no guidebook other than very traditional farmwives all around her, and a feeling in her gut that told her she had to make her life her own. This book is packed with interviews and stories from inspiring women from across Canada who are doing that very thing.

“You have a brightness in your spirit that is rare. You are documenting peoples lives. This is really special. Thank you for putting your heart into this.” – Amanda A., Daughter of a Farmwife. "I LOVE THIS! And you. You are showing women how much they matter. This is deep, healing work. I am proud of you." Alexandra Franzen, Writer & Author, Portland, OR, USA. ( "I hope this is one of a hundred book series!" - Bridget Ryan, Producer/TV-Host Dinner Television, Edmonton, AB, CAN.
