When Robert Frost was a child, his family thought he would grow up to be a baseball player. Instead, he became a poet. His life on a farm in New Hampshire inspired him to write “poetry that talked”, and today he is famous for his vivid descriptions of the rural life he loved so much. There was a time when Frost had to struggle to get his poetry published.
Told from the point of view of Lesley, Robert Frost’s oldest daughter, this is the story of how a lover of language found his voice.
