Awash with anecdote and incident, The Adventures of a Yorkshire Shepherdess is an uplifting memoir of a remarkable woman living the kind of life that is rapidly vanishing from view.
The Sunday Times Top 10 bestseller by the shepherdess and star of Channel 5's Our Yorkshire Farm.
Amanda Owen loves her traditional life on her hill farm alongside her nine children and husband Clive. And, as readers of her previous bestsellers will know, every day at Ravenseat brings surprises. In Adventures of the Yorkshire Shepherdess Amanda takes us from her family's desperate race to save a missing calf to finding her bra has been repurposed as a house martin's nest, and from wild swimming to the brutal winter that almost brought her to her knees. As busy as she is with her family and flock though, an exciting new project soon catches her eye . . .
Ravenseat is a tenant farm and may not stay in the family, so when Amanda discovers a nearby farmhouse up for sale, she knows it is her chance to create roots for her children. The old house needs a lot of renovation and money is tight, so Amanda sets about the work herself, with some help from a travelling monk, a visiting plumber and Clive. It's fair to say things do not go according to plan!
Funny, evocative and set in a remote and beautiful landscape, this book will delight anyone who has hankered after a new life in the country.
