Life slows down alarmingly from the moment Ruby Grant and Oliver move into Troy Cottage. Free at last from her two grown-up yet persistently dependent children, Ruby plans to start writing her novel - until her daughter, Poppy, turns up with boyfriend and dog in tow, announces she's pregnant and moves into Ruby's office. Then Josh needs somewhere to do his washing, and her father wants to stay...



Despite this, Ruby finds village life surprisingly seductive, especially when she meets Hamish, the handsome journalist who is eager to help with her investigations for the parish magazine. There's surely no harm in a little crush - but can Ruby avoid the hazards of country loving?

MEDIA REVIEWS
It's lovely. It's delightful. It's funny and observant and truthful... I really, really liked it * Philip Pullman *
'Fresh, pacy country comedy written in a short, sharp, almost diary, form, and highly addictive' Bookseller * Bookseller *
'A funny and compulsive read' Choice Magazine * Choice Magazine *
She writes wonderfully well. Her style is restrained and supremely confident , pruned of unnecessary detail and sparkling with mordant wit.... Pacy and witty, Highmore's take on the country comedy is as fresh, crisp and delicious as a new organic carrot. An extremely promising debut * Express *
'Entertaining and full of sharp wit and comic characters' Dorset Echo * Dorset Echo *
I have read COUNTRY LOVING and enjoyed it. I like her totally unsentimental angle on country living, and the eccentric and quirky characters... It will do well * Rosamunde Pilcher *
Julie Highmore's warm-hearted novel COUNTRY LOVING, about moving to the country, revels in the hazards of the rural life as well as its seductive attractions * Publishing News *
'Engaging... Lighthearted, spirited and gentle too' Bangor & Anglesey Mail * Bangor & Anglesey Mail *
Funny, original and dazzlingly assured. I adored everything about this excellent book * Jill Mansell *
So enjoyable... It's a lovely read * Catherine Alliott *
