CHEYENNE, Wyo. — Author Cindy Farwell announces the nationwide hardback release of her juvenile fiction, “Milk Bottles and Mud Pies.”

There is nothing that can stop a granddaughter from spending a much-anticipated week at her grandparents’ dairy farm … or is there?

When a terrible storm blows in, however, she finds the expectations of a fun-filled week quickly interrupted. In the aftermath of the storm, Grandpa teaches his granddaughter a most important lesson that lingers in her memory.
