The Rural Diaries – On sale May 5, 2020

The beloved actress and star of One Tree Hill, White Collar, and Lethal Weapon, Hilarie Burton Morgan, tells the story of leaving Hollywood for a radically different kind of life in upstate New York with her husband Jeffrey Dean Morgan—a celebration of community, family, and the value of hard work in small town America.

While Hilarie Burton Morgan’s hectic lifestyle as an actress in New York and Los Angeles gave her a comfortable life, it did not fulfill her spiritually or emotionally. After the birth of their first son, she and her husband Jeffrey Dean Morgan, the star of The Walking Dead, decided to make a major change: they bought a working farm in Rhinebeck, New York, and began a new chapter in their lives.

The Rural Diaries chronicles her inspiring story of farm life: chopping wood, making dandelion wine, building chicken coops. Burton looks back at her transition from urban to country living—discovering how to manage a farm while raising her son and making friends with her new neighbors. She mixes charming stories of learning to raise alpacas and buying and revitalizing the town’s beloved candy store, Samuel’s Sweet Shop, with raw observations on the ups and downs of marriage and her struggles with secondary infertility. Burton also includes delicious recipes that can be made with fresh ingredients at home, as well as home renovation and gardening tips.

Burton’s charisma, wide eyed attitude, and fortitude—both internal and physical—propels this moving story of transformation and self-discovery. The Rural Diaries honors the values and lifestyle of small-town America and offers inspiration for anyone longing to embark on their own unconventional journey.

The Morgan Family purchase Manhattan apartment

The family are typically based in the Hudson Valley. Hilarie’s husband Jeffrey just purchased an apartment in the Noho neighborhood of Manhattan for $2.85 million. The two-bedroom co-op is everything you’d expect to find in the chic downtown neighborhood: It boasts an open floor plan of more than 2,600 square feet, with windows lining the living and dining areas. This flows into a chef’s kitchen complete with white Carrera marble countertops and top-of-the-line appliances, including a Viking Refrigerator. You’ll find Brazilian walnut hardwood floors throughout the apartment, which “are basked in light from the oversize double windows,” according to the listing. Exposed brick and clean lines also enhance the minimalist design.

The master bedroom features the same details found throughout the home, plus amenities like an en suite bathroom complete with a Jacuzzi tub and a rain shower. A massive walk-in closet with built-ins provides plenty of storage space.

Although the high-end finishes make the apartment a comfortable place to call home, Morgan, his wife (actress Hilarie Burton), and their two children have no plans of leaving their Hudson Valley property entirely. The family enjoys raising their cows, ducks, alpaca, chickens, miniature donkeys, and dogs on the estate. Plus, the actor is a copartner with Paul Rudd in the Samuel’s Sweet Shop in Rhinebeck.
