A Year in the Life of the Yorkshire Shepherdess Summary

A Year in the Life of the Yorkshire Shepherdess by Amanda Owen

The Sunday Times bestseller full of inspiring tales of life as a shepherdess, by the star of Channel 5's Our Yorkshire Farm.

From bestselling author Amanda Owen come more stories of life at Ravenseat, the remote Yorkshire hill farm she shares with husband Clive, eight children and 1,000 sheep. In A Year in the Life of the Yorkshire Shepherdess she describes the age-old cycles of a farming year and the constant challenges the family faces, from being cut off in winter to tending their flock on some of Yorkshire's highest, bleakest moors - land so inaccessible that in places it can only be reached on foot.

Writing with her trademark warmth and humour, Amanda takes us into her life as nine-year-old Miles gets his first flock, Reuben takes up the flugelhorn and she gives birth to a new baby girl. She is touched by the epic two-day journey of a mother sheep determined to find her lamb and gives a new home to an ageing and neglected horse. Meanwhile Clive is almost arrested on a midnight stakeout to catch a sheep-worrying dog and becomes the object of affection for a randy young bull.

Funny, poignant and charming, A Year in the Life of the Yorkshire Shepherdess is a must for anyone interested in the countryside and those who farm it.

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

A Year in the Life of the Yorkshire Shepherdess Reviews

Amanda Owen is like a breath of fresh air. Amanda's life is one of old-fashioned values, hard graft and plenty of love. She, like her life, is extraordinary. * Ben Fogle *
This is the captivating story of life on the highest farm in the north Yorkshire Dales . . . the mum-of-eight told the story of leaving behind an urban life in last year's The Yorkshire Shepherdess. This book is even better. * Sun *
A really lovely, lyrical story of the ups and downs of their life. * Daily Mail *

About Amanda Owen

Amanda Owen grew up in Huddersfield but was inspired by the James Herriot books, amongst others, to work in farming.

Happily married with nine children, she wouldn't change a thing about her hectic but rewarding life. Voted Yorkshirewoman of the Year by the Dalesman magazine, she is also the author of the top ten bestseller The Yorkshire Shepherdess and writes a weekly column in the Sunday Mirror about life on the farm. She has also appeared on ITV's The Dales and Countrywise, as well as her own Channel 5 series Our Yorkshire Farm.
