9780091891862: A Country Wife

Londoner Lucy Pinney arrived in the Dorset countryside a charmingly naïve and very enthusiastic newly-wed. Knowing nothing of the great outdoors, she blithely launched herself into a life of lamb-rearing, cake-baking and ploughing competitions. Battling the continual threat of bankruptcy, grappling with lambing and calving and navigating the politics and peculiarities of the countryside set, A Country Wife tells the witty, touching and evocative tale of one woman’s transition from townie bride to farmer’s wife. Set against the backdrop of the Dorset and Devon countryside, Lucy chronicles the foibles of those living off the land as well as her experiences in her own, less than perfect farmhouse kitchen.

About the Author:

Lucy Pinney wrote an extremely popular column for The Times, called 'Country Life', for over four years. With style and wit, Lucy chronicled life in the Devon countryside - from diversifying wives and errant husbands, to lambing seasons and pet foxes - as well as life inside her own, less than perfect, farmhouse kitchen. Lucy is now a full-time author.

Book Description Ebury Publishing, United Kingdom, 2005. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. 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?.
