A Farm in France

Tom Stoffel was contentedly living life in a snug turn-of-the-century foursquare in Denver, Colorado, when his bride of seven years, Trina, confided she really wanted to live on a farm . . . in France.

Agreeing that the dream would be more likely to materialize if they stayed within the confines of the United States, the couple launched a plan aimed at getting them out of the city in five years.
