Adventures Of The Yorkshire Shepherdess [9781509852673]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

Amanda Owen, husband Clive and their nine children live at Ravenseat, one of the most remote hill farms in the country. It's a beautiful place, high in the Dales, and a rewarding existence close to nature.

But Ravenseat is a tenant farm and may not stay in the family, so when Amanda saw a nearby farmhouse up for sale, she knew it was her chance to create roots for the next generation.

The old house needed a lot of renovation and money was tight, so with her usual resourcefulness Amanda set about the work herself, with some help from a travelling monk, a visiting plumber and Clive. It's fair to say things did not go according to plan . . .

In Adventures of the Yorkshire Shepherdess Amanda brilliantly evokes life on the farm, as the whole family search for a missing new-born calf, much loved Shetland pony Little Joe defends his honour and the brutal winter of 2018 almost brings her to her knees.

As busy as she is with her family and flock she also manages to transform a damp and dark old house into a dream home. Funny, charming and filled with unforgettable characters, this book will delight anyone who has hankered after a new life in the country.

`Amanda's life is one of old-fashioned values, hard graft and plenty of love. She, like her life, is extraordinary' Ben Fogle


AUTHOR: Amanda Owen grew up in Huddersfield but was inspired by the James Herriot books to leave her town life behind and head to the countryside. After working as a freelance shepherdess, cow milker and alpaca shearer, she eventually settled down as a farmer's wife with her own flock of sheep at Ravenseat. Happily married with nine children, she wouldn't change a thing about her hectic but rewarding life. She and her family have appeared in ITV's The Dales, in Ben Fogle's New Lives in the Wild and in their own series on Channel 5, Our Yorkshire Farm. Voted Yorkshirewoman of the Year by the Dalesman magazine, she is also the author of the top-ten bestsellers The Yorkshire Shepherdess and A Year in the Life of the Yorkshire Shepherdess.
