Agriculturist’s Advice: Live Simply, Simply Live

Share Article

Andrew Earl inspires and entertains with new fiction.

This book is different from the run-of-the-mill stuff out there. It will make readers notice things in life they have never noticed before.

What would your life look like if you stripped away all of the “stuff?”

Andrew Earl, having worked to support his struggling family as a child and then facing the death of four of his eight children later in life, decided early on that life is about more than material things. Taking these adversities in stride, Earl has a positive outlook and finds joy wherever he can.

Earl, an agriculturalist for most of his life, appreciates the beauty and importance of simplistic living, which naturally makes its way into his writing. Drawing on his life experiences and love for the countryside, Earl pens new adventure fiction, "The Blossom and the Musket."

Set in the mid-nineteenth century in New Zealand, "The Blossom and the Musket" contrasts the brutality of warfare with the tenderness of a love affair between two characters. Earl develops colorful characters and intriguing plot elements in his new fiction, making his readers think and dream.

Through the book, Earl has one ultimate goal: that readers will not only enjoy the story but reflect on the important messages about life and love woven throughout.

“This book is different from the run-of-the-mill stuff out there,” Earl says. “It will make readers notice things in life they have never noticed before.”
