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.
