Anderby Wold, Paperback / softback Book


Mary Robson is a young Yorkshire woman, married to her solid, unromantic cousin, John.

Together they battle to preserve Mary's neglected inheritance, her beloved farm, Anderby Wold.

This labour of love - and the benevolent tyranny of traditional Yorkshire ways - have made Mary old before her time.

Then into her purposeful life comes David Rossitur, red-haired, charming, eloquent: how can she help but love him?

But David is a young man from a different England, radical and committed to social change.

As their confrontation and its consequences inevitably unfold, Mary's life and that of the calm village of Anderby are changed forever.
