A Country Wife, Paperback / softback Book

A Country Wife Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

Twenty years ago a young Londoner named Lucy arrived in the Dorset countryside as a rather bemused bride.

She knew nothing of the great outdoors and blithely agreed to spend her honeymoon harvesting.

Her rural education was to be a fast and frantic one.

This is the story of a woman who began rural life in romance, raised a family in the farmyard, was left by her husband just as her name was being made as a columnist for the countryside, and found a whole new life for herself in the hills and valleys she had come to love.

Inspired by Lucy Pinney's popular columns for The Times, this bewitching bucolic romp is a glorious combination of Bridget Jones, I Don't Know How She Does It and Gervase Phinn.

She became a farmer's wife for love of the farmer, but can Lucy's relationship with the countryside survive two decades, divorce and more mud than she ever dreamed possible?
