Maggie, The Farmer’s Daughter

StoryCast written and read by Kathleen Pelley

Maggie, The Farmer’s Daughter is one of my early published stories that appeared in Cricket Magazine in March 2000. It is a retelling of an old Irish tale about a farmer’s daughter who wins the heart of a king with her talent for spinning stories. Of course, as many of you know, I myself am a farmer’s daughter and was lucky enough to spend most of my childhood summers steeped in the wonder and beauty of the Irish countryside, where my writer’s roots were first sown.
