Not only is Josef moving the family to a farm in the middle of nowhere (to remove Max and his six younger siblings from the temptations of the city), the only option for a Catholic education is enrollment at nearby St. Agnes Academy. An all-girls school.Max is overwhelmed by classes of young women and more nuns than hes ever seen, not to mention a new home without electricity and indoor plumbing. Even worse, his hard-hearted, Rosary-a-day father seems intent on making his oldest son as miserable as possible. Maxs friends? Forget them. Hobbies and dreams? Not hardly. Even one speck of something close to fun?

Sorry, Max, go chop the wood.Forsaking Mimosa is a timeless story of a disillusioned boy who grows into a man in the most unlikely environment. Along the way he comes to know the redeeming power of home as he faces tragedy, falls in love, and makes important discoveries about himself, his faith and, ultimately, his enigmatic father.
