People perceive change differently. Some fear it, others embrace it. Mark and Susan have built their life in the busy suburb of Chicago, but everything is about to change when they decide to move into a large country house left to them by Susan’s grandmother. Readers can witness how they will adapt to their new home in Country Pride, a novel by Candice M. Wiester.

After fifteen years, Mark is burned out on corporate law. Needing a change, he and Susan decided to uproot and leave the city behind and move to the country. Mark is accepted at a small family law firm in a town near Susan’s grandmother’s house, while Susan remains a stay-at-home mother to Scotty and Megan. They begin to develop a special bond with their neighbors, Arty and Sarah, a couple in their mid-eighties. The couple’s relatives, however, believe Mark and Susan are meddling in family affairs.

Was moving to the country the right decision? Mark and Susan still have a lot to learn about country life like farming and cooking, but in time, they just might develop some Country Pride. Readers can follow them as they learn the true value of family from real and adopted family members.
