Set in the farmlands of mid-America in the late nineteenth century, "Fallow's Field" tells the story of a man whose work is his only solace as he buries his emotions amidst the growing blades of golden wheat.
After the tragic deaths of his father and uncle, Ned Fallow grows into a silent young man, shut off from emotional ties and struggling to earn a living on a wheat farm in Midland, Kansas. He becomes obsessed with growing the perfect crop in the fertile Kansas soil and pays little attention to the world around him; yet the beautiful, intelligent schoolteacher, Lily Thomason, and the untimely death of one of his workers finally force Ned out of his shell and make him rethink his perspective on the life he's always envisioned.
"Fallow's Field" is the portrait of a good man, hurt so badly that he has turned away from those intimate connections that add true meaning to one's life. As Ned struggles against the forces of nature, human and otherwise, he is faced with one last chance at happiness-and the leap of faith he must take to find his ultimate redemption.
