Tales From the Country Matchmaker Summary


Tales From the Country Matchmaker by Patricia Y. Warren

Since founding the Farmers' and Country Bureau from her Peak District farmhouse over twenty years ago, Patricia has been helping love blossom the length and breadth of rural England. She has hundreds of marriages and numerous babies to her credit. A born matchmaker whose warmth, patience and humour have changed the lives of hundreds of people, here are Pat's stories of the love and romance she has helped to create. Of course love isn't always on the cards for her clients. Take George, who wouldn't leave his lady friend until she'd finished knitting his jumper. Or the pig farmer who didn't take a shower. But for the truly romantic there's Harry, the poetry-writing farmer who found his perfect match just when he'd given up hope. Patricia's tales are pure delight -- and a heartening reminder that there really can be a 'happy ever after'.

About Patricia Y. Warren


Patricia was born in Redditch but has always loved the countryside and wanted to be a matchmaker, ever since she played at matching her dolls as a child. But it wasn't until she moved to Derbyshire and met and married the rugged, bearded farmer she'd always dreamed of that she turned her childhood ambition into a thriving business. Pat lives with her husband and their two teenage children on their livestock farm in the Peak District.
