Harvest Town is a mobile Farm Life Sim developed by QY Games, and published by

The player starts as an aging individual who had lived the last few decades of their life in a foreign city. Disillusioned by their current circumstances, the protagonist begins to reminisce about their hometown—the fresh smell of the grass, the delicious milk it provided...

Overcome by nostalgia, the disheartened protagonist regretted ever leaving the countryside, and wishes for a second chance in which they would have stayed back instead.

Their wish is granted, and the protagonist awakens to find themselves back in their hometown, as a youth once more. Excited, the player is determined to use this opportunity to rebuild their deteriorating farm and carve a better future in the titular Harvest Town.


Tropes applicable to this game:

  • Absurdly Elderly Mother: Pong Ching is a grandmotherly lady who once served as a Parental Substitute to the middle-aged Mary Morris, whose daughter Jessie is about the same age as Pong Ching's own sons, Lee Yau and Lee Yeung.
  • Ad Reward: Ads can be used for a wide variety of purposes, such as: gaining random boosts, collecting Daily Login rewards that you missed out, spinning the lucky wheel, increasing your Relationship Values with NPCs (inviting them for a "movie date" in-universe), and speeding up the cooldown timers on workshop production, goods stall, and order station. There's actually several achievements that the players unlock after watching ads over a certain number of consecutive days.
  • Afraid of Needles: A cutscene reveals that Duke Evans and Chris Ford are nervous about getting their routine shots, and both men quickly escape from the clinic when they are finally called for their turns.
  • Advertisement:
  • The Alcoholic: Jim Ortiz is the town drunk who always seem to be nursing some hangover. According to his backstory, he's started drinking to drown his sorrows after his wife left him and dumped their child on him before disappearing.
  • Ambiguously Bi: Several NPC can seem like this due to their dialogues with you remaining the same regardless of the your gender, even if they sound flirty.
  • Ambiguously Human: Fay and May are a pair of sisters who live with Foxy (an immortal fox spirit), and don't seem to have other family members. Fay is also said to be friends with Fisher, even though the latter's bio state that the Protagonist is the only human that can see him.
  • And Your Reward Is Clothes: The Harvest Cup and the seasonal event rewards almost always include a special themed outfit, although players can only unlock them if they purchase the monthly VIP pass.
  • And Your Reward Is Interior Decorating: Due to the game's prominent An Interior Designer Is You feature, almost every event would offer decorative items as its main reward.
  • An Interior Designer Is You: For many players, Harvest Town's main draw is not the farming simulator, or romancing the NPCs, but the freedom to beautify and customize their manor and farmland with the many, many decorations and skins that can be purchased from the in-game market or won from the Harvest Cup events.
  • Arranged Marriage: Ella Cole complains that her father had promised her hand in marriage to David Hanks's son, Bill, even though she likes someone else.
  • Art Evolution: The NPCs' character artworks have been changed between an update to look less stylized, with softer lines, less saturated colours, and more realistic proportions.
  • The Bartender: Andy Reed is the town's bar owner who knows how to brew just the right drink to make his patrons (especially Ella) happy.
  • Beneath the Mask: Despite having a seemingly cheerful and friendly disposition, Duke isn't particularly close with anyone. He also isn't comfortable with physical touch, and dislikes noisy kids and nagging old people, even if he never says anything about it.
  • Big Brother Attraction: Gender-Inverted. Young Jerry Allen loves his big sister, Sherry, and frequently tells the protagonist that she belongs to him.
  • Big Eater: According to his bio, Steve Lopez normally eats enough for three grown-ups. Incidentally, his favourite gifts are home-cooked meals, especially hot pot.
  • Birds of a Feather:
    • Duke claims that Jessie is his best friend. Which makes sense: he's a musician and she's a dancer, and the two go hand-in-hand.
    • All of the boys seem to be attracted to Peach in one way or another, but she seems to be closest to Justin. Quite fitting, considering that both suffers from Parental Abandonment issues—Peach's parents are busy working in the city and rarely bother to contact her, while Justin's mom had outright dumped him and his father.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Elly rarely gets angry, but when she does get angry, things usually don't end well.
  • "Blind Idiot" Translation: The game's English translation is amateurish at best and downright incomprehensible at worst. Expect to find many examples of inconsistent tenses, shoddy grammar, missing capitalization, incorrect punctuations, poor word choices and odd sentence flows. At worst, cutscene dialogues are completely untranslated from its original Chinese or missing in texts.
  • Can't Argue with Elves: Merpeople are said to be the noblest and strongest of all species, and are able to command the weathers to an extent. The one merman we see in the game, Fisher, is extremely arrogant and disdainful towards humans, whom he sees as beneath him. His in-game profile describes him as being "full of ethnic pride", which implies that other merfolk would have similarly haughty attitudes.
  • Cassandra Truth: Despite her prominent ears and tail, no one in the town actually believes Foxy's claims to be a fox spirit.
  • Catchphrase: Lee Yau's (in)famous, "Get out of my way!"
  • Child Hater: Downplayed. Duke dislikes children because he thinks they're too noisy and dirty. During his beach date scene, he gets into a fight with a random kid (whom he derisively calls "Meat ball") after accidentally breaking the kid's toy. However, he's fine with the Harvest Town kids, because they're not as rambunctious.
  • Cleavage Window: Jessie & Foxy have these on their costumes.
  • Cool Big Sis: Sherry Allen is a headstrong and independent young woman whom the kids—especially her kid brother and Peach—love and admire very much. Sherry serves as a Parental Substitute for Jerry (because their parents can't be bothered to raise cildren), and teaches Peach how to earn money to buy gifts for her grandpa.
  • Comically Missing the Point:
    • During one of Elly's heart events, she takes care of a squirrel who has been hit by an apple, and chides Duke for not helping out despite being nearby. Duke's response?
      Duke: "I ate the apple to revenge!"
    • Again during one of Duke's heart event, when he decided to teach Yeung "a lesson" when he accidentally hit Jessie.
      Duke: "Yeung, open your eyes & listen, this is black, the color of her (Jessie's) dress, repeat after me: B-L-A-C-K... Well, I'll teach you until you know all the colors."
  • Cosmetic Award: The clothes rewards that can be won from the Harvest Cup doesn't give any stat boost, and is only there for aesthetic purpose.
  • Crazy Jealous Guy: Fisher would get mad if the protagonist shows interest towards other guys, and would threaten to drown the town if they give gifts to other people.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Andy used to be involved in gangs, and has suffered some serious mental health issue that requres psychotherapy. He's fine now, though.
  • Dating Sim: The February 2021 update implements a Dating System, where the player can invite a bachelor/ette of their choice once a day to various date locations to unlock new cutscenes, gain affection and potentially obtain special decorative items. The dating scenes looks like it came straight out of a Visual Novel, with the dialogues taking place in front of scenic backdrops instead of the usual in-game maps.
  • Double Entendre: The sheet's description. Explanation 
  • Dumb Muscle: Bill Hanks is a huge, muscular guy, but is noted to have a low IQ.
  • Embarrassing Nickname: Jim calls his son JJ, which Justin detests.
  • Endearingly Dorky: Lee Yeung is an introvert who doesn't know how to express his feelings properly, but the way he flusters around the player character when his Relationship Value is high enough is very endearing, and the player character certainly finds his shy but earnest attitude during their dates very cute.
  • Everyone Went to School Together: The protagonist and most of their potential love interests (with the exception of Andy, Duke and Chris — who came from the Metropolis — and the Supernatural beings) went to school together and were taught by Tom Cole. In some of the date scenes, the protagonist reminisces the time they spent in school with their date.
  • Expy: Although their character designs look nothing alike, Ella and Elly Cole's v.1.0. backstories are definitely based on Akane and Kasumi Tendo from Ranma ½. They are sisters who have a Tomboy and Girly Girl dynamic, the older being a gentle and motherly Yamato Nadeshiko, while the younger is a fierce and unladylike martial artist. The younger once tried growing out her hair after her sister mentioned that her crush might not like tomboys, but now wears her hair short after an accidental haircut. Nevertheless, her love remains unrequited because her crush is actually in love her older sister (and turns into a blubbering idiot in her presence), even though the latter remains oblivious to his attraction.
  • Family Theme Naming: Siblings in this setting tend to have similar names, e.g.: Ella and Elly Cole, Lee Yau and Lee Yeung, Fay and May, and Sherry and Jerry Allen.
  • Foxy Vixen: The appropriately named Foxy is a Kitsune who wears a rather revealing qipao and has a teasing personality to match.
  • Freemium: The game can be played for free, but if you want to maximize rewards from the Harvest Cup event, they have to buy a VIP pass that lasts for the duration of the event.
  • Freemium Timer: Of the individual timeout variety.
    • Producing goods in the workshop takes up real-world hours, which can be frustrating if you need the items for a limited-time quest and you're not planning to log-off any time soon.
    • After completing an order, the player will have to wait for several minutes to several hours (depending on the order quality) for the next one to refresh.
    • The international release of the game adds a cooldown timer on the Goods Stall that increases with the increasing value and amount of goods sold. Like with the workshops, players can use diamonds, watch ads or use speed-up coupons.
  • Frying Pan of Doom: One of the strongest weapons in the game is a frying pan, which you can obtain from Foxy if your relationship value with her is at least 10 hearts.
  • Gameplay and Story Segregation: Yes, the game does have a story beyond just an Excuse Plot, and it doesn't always align with what the player experience while playing.
    • One glaring example is the Relationship Values system. Although the opportunity to befriend and romance villagers of the player's own choosing is one of the main appeal of the genre, the incongruity of this system is made more obvious by the fact that the player character is a native who grew up in the titular Harvest Town (instead of being a City Mouse newcomer like most Farm Life Sim protagonists), and it doesn't make sense that the people whom they grew up with (e.g. their childhood friend Peach and her grandfather John) is equally close to them as the people who had only recently moved to town (e.g. the Fords).
    • When visiting the bar, the player can offer to pay for the other guests' drinks for 500 coins (which increases their affection by +8 points). This offer is available even when the bar is closed on Mondays, or when Andy has left for the Saturday hotpot party.
    • In one of the side quests, Duke will ask you to find his guitar, which he's lost in the bar. However, he'll be seen playing his guitar as normal even if you haven't return it.
  • God in Human Form: Foxy, despite being a centuries-old fox spirit/fairy, works as an unassuming shopkeeper in town, and can be interacted with the same way as any other human characters. At one point, she even catches a cold, and has to get medicine from the doctor, and gets some plain ol' cough medication. This is in contrast to the other mythical characters present in the game, such as Fisher, Ello, Abu and Barl (Fisher can only be found after completing Fay's Mysterious Scale side quests, while Abu and Barl only appear after unlocking Tom Cole's series of Parchment quests. These creatures also only appear on the map at certain days of the week and remain hidden otherwise).
  • Good Morning, Crono: The game opens with the player asleep under the tree and being awakened by Peach, the fisherman's granddaughter, who scolds the protagonist for trying to abandon the farm after leaving it in shambles. The protagonist quickly reassures her and her grandfather that they are staying in town, after all.
  • Happily Married: Gary Cruz and Elaine Terry have a very affectionate relationship, unlike most other families in the town. Whenever the player gives Gary something he likes, he always shares them with Elaine. One of Glen's heart event cutscene shows them trying to re-enact their first meeting, and ends with Gary being mushy about expressing his love for Elaine.
  • Hates Being Touched: According to his bio, Duke is Terrified of Germs and doesn't enjoy physical contact, which may explain why he tends to keep a distance from the crowd during events.
  • Henpecked Husband: Gary Cruz does everything his wife Elaine tells him too, and at one point even calls himself a henpecked husband. Despite this, Gary still loves his wife very much, and they're Happily Married.
  • Honorary Uncle: The protagonist refers to Steve Lopez and David Hanks as uncle, but as far as we know, they are not actual family members (otherwise their potential romance with Lulu and/or Bill would be Kissing Cousins, which is illegal in China).
  • Humans Are the Real Monsters: Discussed by Abu the frog when the player first encounters him.
    Abu: Monster? What monster? Humans are monsters to me.
  • Hunk:
    • Despite his gentle and romantic personality, Andy Reed has a more rugged and masculine appearance than most of the other bachelors, especially since he's the only bachelor that has facial hair. This doesn't stop him from being one of the most popular marriage candidate, however.
    • Bill Hanks, the blacksmith's son, is a big guy with huge muscles who enjoys manual labour and thinks that smithery is the most noble and manly profession. His initial character design actually gave him a budybuilder-like physique (and pose). His newer design tones down the muscle, but he's still noticeably bulkier than many of the other Bishōnen bachelors.
  • I Was Quite a Looker: David's bio states that he was a quite handsome young man. However, he's now grown fat and bald, and is arguably less attractive than his two friends, Gary and Steve.
  • Impoverished Patrician: The Allens used to be an influential family, but is currently at the brink of bankruptcy.
  • Informed Attribute: Many descriptions of the NPC's personalities and relationships are only described in their in-game bio, but not really apparent in the characters' dialogues and events, likely thanks to Gameplay and Story Segregation.
    • Andy Reed apparently transforms into a bumbling fool whenever he's with Elly Cole, and should not be asked to make wine in such moments due to the potential danger it would bring. However, the player can still interact with and make wine purchases from him as normal, even when he's serving Elly at the bar.
    • For someone who is supposed to be a popular playboy, Duke Evans is functionally a loner. He is almost never seen interacting with anyone—not even his supposed best friend Andy—and no one really talks about him in a manner that would reflect his popularity. None of his dialogues with the female characters are particularly flirty, either, especially when compared to several other marriageable characters.
    • Bill is described in his bio as being rather chauvinistic (like his dad) who doesn't know how to treat girls rightly. In all his dialogues and cutscenes, he's shown to be kind and helpful towards others, if slightly clumsy and ungraceful.
    • Peter Allen's bio mentions that his daughter Sherry helps to manage their family's horse farm, and her involvement in the business is the only reason why it manages to stay afloat. However, Sherry actually runs her own salon, and only returns to the farm well after its business hours.
    • In one of the side quests, Elly mentions that Bill and Lulu are good friends since they both lost their mothers to an accident. However, the two are almost never even seen in the same vicinity, let alone share any moments that indicates their closeness. The only person that can be considered Lulu's friend is Jessie, whom she often visits.
  • An Interior Designer Is You: The game offers a great possibility of customization for the player's manor and farmyard, offering various skins and decorative buildings and items to beautify the place as the player sees fit. Players can even move around the furnitures and buildings (except for the main house), which allows them to design their own unique layouts for their character's home.
  • A Lizard Named "Liz": The game seems to lack creativity in naming their mythical characters. We have Foxy the vixen, and Fisher the merman.
  • Manchild: Jessie Morris is a childish woman who is obsessed with cute things, and would often hang out in the forest to play with the cute critters, which she tries to take home.
  • Married to the Job: May, the teacher, is only interested in education and has no time for romance. It is said that guys who try to hit on her end up getting lectured instead. They tend to get better grades as a result.
  • Massive Numbered Siblings: Exaggerated with Sam the cave diglett, who is said to have over 300 brothers.
  • Match-Three Game: The Elf Quest even offers the Merging variant. The player is given a board that will produce one of five different-coloured eggs that will grow to become coin-producing monsters. The higher the monster level, the more coins they can produce. These coins are then used to buy decorations which in turn can be used to unlock various rewards.
  • Mental Time Travel: Probably. The protagonist is first shown in the prologue as an aged person who has become disillusioned by their life in the city. Desiring to return to their hometown, they fall asleep, and wakes up at their farm as a youth. The game then proceeds as the protagonist tries to use this second chance to build a fulfilling life in their hometown instead of leaving as they originally planned. The game has yet to explain how or why this phenomenon occurred.
  • Minor Injury Overreaction: The whole Cruz family rushes Glen to the hospital for emergency treatment after the kid accidentally cut his finger with a plastic knife. Lee Yau rightfully tells them to not come to the doctor for every minor incidents and asks them to learn more common sense.
  • Missing Mom: Only about three families in Harvest Town have a complete set of parents, and of those who doesn't, most are missing a mother figure.
    • Justin Ortiz's mother dumped him with his drunk father before disappearing altogether, leaving the kid quite bitter. He often tells the player how he misses his mother, and dislikes his drunk father.
    • Tom Cole's wife, as well as Steve Lopez's and Bill Hanks's have all passed away, leaving their kids without a mother.
    • Chris Ford's mother is either dead or has left his family. In one cutscenes, he gives Justin Ortiz a phone where he can try to call his mom, and after the kid leaves, Chris muses that he misses his own.
  • Mr. Fanservice: Meet Fisher, Long-Haired Pretty Boy, Icy Blue Eyes, and Walking Shirtless Scene combined.
  • Mystical White Hair: Foxy, the immortal white fox spirit has white hair.
  • Nice Guy: Bill is always ready to help others in need; during his beach date scene, he rescues a boy from drowning, then goes back to the sea to find the toy he lost, but not without taking the time to get a beautiful coral to gift to the player.
  • Not Good with People: Fay is a shy and socially awkward young woman and would try to avoid conversations if the player tries to chat up to her. However, she seems to fare much better with animals, and she often hangs around at the ranch to play with the critters there. The quests she offers frequently involves getting food she'd like to give to her animal friends.
  • Only One Name: Sisters May and Fay have no surname, and no known parents.
  • Our Elves Are Different: Probably due to the lack of proper translations, the game describes several various mythical creatures as elves, including Ello (a butterfly-winged fairy) and Barl (a kappa). The frog-like creature named Abu is not described as an elf, but given that he's Barl's cousin, the game may consider him as one too.
  • Our Mermaids Are Different: In the game's verse, Merpeople can apparently fly and live on land (at least for a short while). Fisher the merman can occasionally be seen in the waterless North Forest area, and he flies to travel between the Occult Beach and the lake at Occult Peak. It is also said that merpeople can control weather.
  • Parental Issues: Most of the NPCs have a less-than-ideal family situations.
    • The Allens is a textbook example of a dysfunctional family. Peter Allen, the patriarch is a haughty traditionalist who disapproves his daughter's independence, despite being a poor excuse of a businessman who had squandered his family's wealth. His wife, Julia, is a vain and selfish woman who neglected their children in favour of pleasing herself. As a result, their daughter Sherry had to bear the burden of keeping the family afloat and raising her younger brother. She is determined to move out from her parents' home to protect Jerry from their negative influence.
    • The doctor's family, to a lesser extent. Lee Wah is obsessed with health and medicine, and insists that his sons become doctors. While his older son is fine with this, his younger son is more interested with mechanics, and this causes a rift between the two. Lee Wah's insistence to serve only healthy meals at home eventually drives Yeung away, and the latter now lives in his own trailer.
    • Justin Ortiz used to live with his mother, until she presumably got tired of him and left him with his alcoholic father. But even though Jim loves his son and tries his best to be a good father to the kid, Justin resents the rural town he's been dumped in, and rebels against his dad.
    • Mary Morris is a divorced Education Mama who pressures her daughter, Jessie, to become a star dancer and only shows affection to the girl when she is sleeping, or after she won competition prizes. It is said that this harsh upbringing caused Jessie to become an emotionally stunted woman who behaves like a child despite being an adult.
    • Implied with Duke Evans. His v.1.0 story mentions that he comes from a Big, Screwed-Up Family, although it is unknown if this is still the case in the v.2.0 version of the game, which does not mention his family at all.
  • Play Every Day: The game offers daily log-in rewards and provides a series of daily quests for additional bonuses to encourage people to continue playing every day even after completing the main story quests.
  • Precocious Crush: Glen expresses his wish to marry Elly some day. Likewise, Justin considers Elly a good wife, and seems to have a mild attraction towards Jessie, whom he considers "hot".
  • Premium Currency: Players can spend diamonds to speed up the Freemium Timer, or buy additional materials for producing goods, delivering orders, cooking, crafting and building. Certain seasonal events may also require diamonds to make further progress (such as the infamous Elf Quest event). These diamonds can be obtained from completing daily quests, reaching certain levels at the Harvest Cup, or as rewards for reaching certain positions during event competitions. These diamonds are also available to purchase in the item mall.
  • Pretty Boy:
    • Duke Evans is a handsome musician who has won the hearts of many women due to his beautiful music and charming smile. This is especially apparent in the newer character artwork, which makes him look decidedly less rugged and more slender and conventionally pretty.
    • Lee Yau is the resident Hospital Hottie who is proud of his good looks. In particular, his earlier character artwork looks more like a boy-band idol than a medic. The redesign gives him sharper features that gives him a less glamorous appearance that is more befitting of a doctor, but nevertheless remains quite attractive.
    • Chris Ford is drawn in a similar manner to Lee Yau and, like the good doctor, he sometimes flaunts his "sexiness" to the player. He's also one of the marriageable options in the game, so his being attractive is pretty much a given.
    • Fisher the merman is a Long-Haired Pretty Boy who, while not being called attractive by in-universe residents (due to him being invisible to most humans), is certainly popular with a lot of players, who consider him the prettiest of the bachelors.
  • Purely Aesthetic Gender: There is virtually no gameplay difference between playing as a male vs. playing as a female, aside from the aesthetics. It is said that the player can't marry bachelors/bachelorettes of the same-sex, but the dialogues between the love candidates remain the same regardless of the player character's gender, even if they sound flirty. It doesn't help that the player can easily switch their gender via the clinic.
  • Raised by Grandparents: Peach Gray lives with her grandfather John, while her parents work in the city. It is also implied that the protagonist was also raised by their grandfather, whom they mention was best friends with John. Their parents aren't mentioned at all.
  • Really 700 Years Old: All the mythical creatures.
    • Foxy claims to have "hundreds of years" worth of cultivation.
    • Barl is at least 200 years old, and the leaf he carries around is said to be a gift for his 200th birthday.
  • Red Filter of Doom: The screen blinks red if your character goes near a monster/enemy with a health of less than 50. Defeating the monster or leaving for a safer place would get rid of the glow even if you haven't recovered your HP yet.
  • The Resenter: Lee Yau hates Duke for being much more popular than him. He thinks the latter is a fraud who is only good at music.
  • Shirtless Scene: Chris was seen as this in one of his heart events.
  • Shout-Out:
    • Lee Yeung is a self-proclaimed Bruce Lee fan and wears a black-and-yellow tracksuit that serves as a direct reference to Game of Death.
    • Glen Cruz is a gamer and is especially fond of Mario. His outfit—a red shirt, blue overalls and a red cap—is an obvious shout-out to the character.
  • Sleeves Are for Wimps: Bill's arms are constantly on display.
  • Status Buff: The clinic sells various potions that briefly raise the character's DEF or ATK stats or maximize their Fishing/Mining/Logging/Cooking/etc. skill. Unfortunately, the player can't buff more than one stat at the same time and drinking a potion while another buff is still in effect will cancel out the effects of the previous one.
  • Stay in the Kitchen: Peter Allen and David Hanks are, respectively, a traditionalist and a chauvinist who believes that women should just stay at home and become a good housewife and/or mother. Peter is a lot less outspoken about his views, especially since his daughter is pretty much the only reason their family hasn't gone bankrupt yet... but David still nags Lulu and Ella for not behaving like proper ladies, i.e. staying at home and cooking meals.
  • Stepford Smiler: Elly, the sweet and gentle angel who is always seen smiling, at certain points would tell the player, "Do I look happy? No."
  • That Makes Me Feel Angry: If the player gives Glen an item he likes, he will say how he's starting to like you more and more, and asks if you can feel his increased affection.
  • Timed Mission: All the quests posted on the town Bulletin board expires within 3 to 5 in-game days. There's no penalty for not completing them on time, but the player would lose the possible rewards.
  • Trapped with the Therapy Session: Duke's "bar date" event isn't actually a date at all—the Player Character goes to a bar to kill time after Duke declined their invitation to go on a fishing date. Coincidentally, they run into Duke at the bar, where he is arguing with an ex-girlfriend. The PC feels awkward and wants to leave, but is unable to do so discreetly, because leaving their seat would just give away their position, which would just make things even more awkward.
  • Tsundere: Lulu Lopez is a sharp-tongued lass who tends to snap at the people she talks with, but she gets quite flustered if the player gives her enough gifts, and awkwardly tells them to stop flirting.
  • Two First Names: Inverted with the doctor's family, Lee Wah, Lee Yau and Lee Yeung, as Wah, Yau and Yeung are common Cantonese surnames.
  • Walking Shirtless Scene: Fisher, being a merman, doesn't wear clothes, so his well-toned body is constantly on display.
  • Where The Hell Is Spring Field: Harvest Town ostensibly exists in the real world (most likely China), given that the characters make reference to real celebrities (e.g. the aforementioned Bruce Lee), places (e.g. Japan and the US) and shows (e.g. Naruto, Spider-Man), but the town itself isn't based on any real/specific location.
  • Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: Steve fears insects. Likewise, Duke dislikes germs.
  • Yamato Nadeshiko: Elly Cole has taken over the role of her mother ever since the latter's death and is especially skilled in cooking. Pretty much everyone who has tasted her food agrees that she'd make a perfect wife, including the young children!
