Billi J. Miller was a city girl when she met Dean, a fourth-generation cattle and grain producer from east-central Alberta, Canada. When they married, she moved to his family farm.
As Miller got to know her new neighbors, she wrote a book about the often-overlooked role of the traditional farmwife. “I wanted it to serve as an intimate and culinary portrayal of this area and the amazing women in it,” she says.
Farmwives in Profile: 17 Women, 17 Questions About Their Lives features Miller’s neighbors. It includes their answers to her questions, beautiful photographs, and their favorite recipes.
Her second book, Farmwives 2: An Inspiring Look at the Lives of the New Canadian Farmwives, was released in March and features 24 women from all across Canada. “It features women from all different kinds of farms and reflects their varying views on the role of the farmwife,” Miller says.
