He's America's Farmer.  She's America's Guilt.  Together they are our tryptophan turd - Stella Bagwell's Their First Thanksgiving.  Seriously, y'all, this book is awful.  He gaslights her, she's got a white savior complex, every woman in his family puts a solid 80 hours of work into Thanksgiving for five people... it is a damned mess.  We burned the book in protest.  Do you know what it takes to get two librarians to participate in a book burning?  NOW YOU DO.

The only real content warning for this one is a real "there won't be snow in Africa this Christmastime" situation even though a white dude totally wrote that Snows of Kilimanjaro book.  And gross gender norms.  And a truly ridiculous amount of pie.
