Dwelling in the Country Vs. City Life
Hello, friends! I am so happy to be with you celebrating the release of AMISH CRADLE CONSPIRACY. Even though this is my 16th release with Love Inspired Suspense, I still feel like a kid when I see it sitting on the shelf.
The majority of Love Inspired and Love Inspired Suspense books are set in either small towns or rural settings. In fact, my first few books were set in an imaginary town in rural northwestern Pennsylvania near where I live. I used some of the scenery I see daily to create LaMar Pond, although much of it was made up, as well.
I’m sometimes asked if I miss living near the city. I grew up in Downers Grove, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago. My first full-time teaching job was in Chicago. I will admit to having fond memories of the place I grew up. It was fun having easy access to all Chicago had to offer. The windy city and its suburbs had charm and the crowds of people, shops and businesses were fascinating. However, I have discovered that I am a country girl at heart. While I loved growing up near the city, I’ve created a short list of advantages, in my opinion, that country life has over city life.
- Privacy: In the country, houses are spaced farther apart. Which means from my house, I can’t see into my neighbors’ windows even when the blinds are up. I like being able to keep the doors and windows open when a fresh breeze is blowing. Also, when my kids were small, we could play in the yard, and the cars driving by couldn’t see us from the road.
- Noise level: The second advantage of the country is there isn’t as much noise. Instead of cars, I hear crickets, cows and peepers in the evening. I never hear factories or trains from my house.
- Stars: Living in a suburb, we saw stars in the night star. But that was nothing compared to the number of stars I can see out in the country.
- Traffic: When I worked in Chicago, I lived 21 miles away from my school. I would leave my apartment at 6:25 to arrive to work by 8:00 in the morning. If I left at 6:35 or 6:40, I’d arrive at 8:30 because the traffic near the city was literally bumper to bumper. When I arrived in Meadville 26 years ago, traffic meant there were four cars at a stoplight.
- Pets: Okay, this one might sound odd. But growing up, we had the normal fare of cats and a dog. Never more than one dog at a time. We didn’t want the barking to disturb the neighbors. Right now, we have two cats, two large dogs, and seven chickens. We’ve also had rabbits, rats and horses through the years. Our neighbors have cows. I drive along my dirt road, and I can also see goats, ducks and horses. I love the variety of animals around me.
I’ll stop here, even though I could add another item or two. Maybe, as my kids all leave home and my husband and I become empty nesters, my preference will change again. Right now, I’m happy where I am.
Do you prefer the country or the city?
