About the Book

The Farm: A Love that Lives On is a story of pursuing one’s dreams through passion, perseverance and good old hard work. It tells a tale of building a life one loves and how that trait spans three generations. Sandy Wolfram and her granddaughter Emma Riedl do an excellent job of reflecting on Sandy’s life, from the time she met her late husband and through the years of building a business and family all while creating a weekend retreat that they vowed they would share with “everyone”. Readers young and old will relish in this memoir that touches the lives of so many people. Heartwarming and heart-wrenching, this is a story of a life well lived, and well loved.

About the Author

Sandy Wolfram and her granddaughter Emma Riedl collaborated on their first writing endeavor to share Sandy’s memories of her life and her beloved farm, where Emma was raised. Sandy has worked in financial services most of her life but was also a teacher straight out of college. She is now jokingly dubbed the Farm Manager but really she is a well-respected business woman, loving mother, and doting grandmother. Sandy loves her donkeys & cats and gardening is her passion. She lives on the farm (in a restored barn) along with her daughter, son-in-law and their four children. Emma is currently a senior at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. She grew up on the farm, in the farmhouse next to Sandy’s refurbished barn. Emma and her siblings affectionately call Sandy their “Gigi”, a name that Emma began calling Sandy at the age of two. Emma graduated from a high school class of 29 students and will graduate from college in May 2021 and begin a full time position in Chicago.
