From bestselling author Amanda Owen come more tales of life at Ravenseat, the remote Yorkshire hill farm she shares with husband Clive, eight children and 900 sheep.
Amanda Owen grew up in Huddersfield but was inspired by the James Herriot books, amongst others, to work in farming. After learning her craft as a freelance shepherdess, cow milker and alpaca shearer, she settled down as a farmer's wife with her own flock of sheep at Ravenseat. Happily married with eight children, she wouldn't change a thing about her hectic but rewarding life. Voted Yorkshirewoman of the Year by the Dalesman magazine, she is the author of the top ten bestseller The Yorkshire Shepherdess and A Year in the Life of the Yorkshire Shepherdess.
Amanda Owen is like a breath of fresh air. Amanda's life is one of
old-fashioned values, hard graft and plenty of love. She, like her
life, is extraordinary. * Ben Fogle *
This is the captivating story of life on the highest farm in the north Yorkshire Dales . . . the mum-of-eight told the story of leaving behind an urban life in last year's The Yorkshire Shepherdess. This book is even better. * Sun *
A really lovely, lyrical story of the ups and downs of their life. * Daily Mail *
