Don't miss the powerful and page-turning new novel from Clare Mackintosh - AFTER THE END is out now
___________

From bestselling author Clare Mackintosh, A Cotswold Family Life is a humorous, warm memoir of family life in the countryside

'Insightful, funny, absorbing' Prue Leith
'Original yet totally recognisable' Katie Fforde
'Sheer bliss!' Jill Mansell
'Heartfelt and poignant' Sunday Express

I have always loved the Cotswolds. I think I loved them even before I found them, in that half-formed ideal one has of where to put down roots. Somewhere peaceful, green, where the road meanders between drystone walls and from town to town, and a strip of blue bursts from brook to river and back again.

For 8 years, Clare Mackintosh wrote for Cotswold Life about the ups and downs of life with a young family in the countryside. In this memoir she brings together all of those stories - and more - for the first time. From keeping chickens to getting the WI drunk, longing for an Aga to dealing with nits, Clare opens the door to family life with warmth and humour and heart.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Clare Mackintosh is the bestselling author of psychological thrillers full of dark and menacing twists, turns and surprise shocks. Here, in a collection of columns from Cotswold Life magazine, the villains are head lice on the scalps of her three children and the red mites that besiege her chickens . . . The gentle, wry humour has genuinely laugh-out-loud moments . . . Her columns are heartfelt and poignant, adding emotional depth to breezy, blithe accounts * Sunday Express *

Insightful, funny, absorbing

-- Prue Leith
Clare's tales of family life in the country are original yet totally recognisable. Very funny! -- Katie Fforde
Clare's brilliant, funny, emotional stories of family life in the Cotswolds are what first prompted me to send a fan letter many years ago, telling her how much I loved her writing - and now here are even more of them, all gathered together in one volume. Sheer bliss! -- Jill Mansell
