Life at Ravenseat is never dull, and in her new book bestselling author Amanda Owen reveals her latest adventures on the remote Yorkshire hill farm she shares with her husband Clive and their eight children. She also describes the age-old cycles of a farming year and the constant challenges the family face as they tend their sheep on some of the country's highest, wildest moors.

Writing with warmth and humour, Amanda tells how nine-year-old Miles got his first flock, Reuben took up the flugelhorn and she herself gave birth to a new baby girl. She also shares the touching stories of an epic two-day journey taken by an ewe determined to find her lamb, and of Queenie, an aging tired horse who came to live at the farm. Meanwhile, Clive is almost arrested on a midnight stakeout to catch a sheep-worrying dog, and he also becomes the object of affection for a randy young bull.

Beautifully evoking the landscape of the Dales and the hardy folk who farm there, A Year in the Life of the Yorkshire Shepherdess will delight everyone who has dreamed of living close to nature.
