Publisher's Summary

For everyone who loves watching Amanda Owen and her family on Our Yorkshire Farm, or enjoys her best-selling books, comes this delightful and uplifting collection of her monthly Dalesman columns.

In Tales from the Farm by the Yorkshire Shepherdess, Amanda takes listeners on an evocative journey to Ravenseat, where she lives with husband Clive and their nine children, not to mention their flock of sheep, herd of cows, hardworking dogs and a formidable chicken called Linda. 

Covering events from 2019 through to early 2021, Amanda describes saving the life of a newborn calf on New Year's Eve and watching, mouth agape, as their livestock trailer was swept away by floodwater in March. Son Sidney braves the wrath of Linda and husband Clive and crafts an unusual Valentine's Day gift. Eldest daughter Raven leaves the nest, headed for university, while young sheepdog Taff and Tony the pony arrive at the farm. As Covid-19 sends the country into lockdown, Amanda feels more lucky than ever to live close to nature, finding happiness in the beauty of the Dales and the unchanging routines of the farming year.

Binged the book in night

I’m writing this at 2:15 am on the day after release day. What a book especially for lovers of our Yorkshire farm. I have honestly say as a Yorkshire lass I loved the dialect and can not wait for what is next

Excellent

As usual lovely tales from Ravenseat. Amanda writes eloquently but simply and more importantly for me narrated by herself. Look forward to her next book, but don’t. know how she fits everything into her busy life.

A happy listen

Always enjoy Amanda’s work and so pleased that she actually reads it herself. A double delight. Well worth buying the Yorkshire Shepherdess books.

Interesting and informative

Whether you’re familiar with the life and situation of this unusual family or not, there is enjoyment to be found in learning more about the ups and downs of daily life at Ravenseat. The story is told gently, with love, and is full of informative insights into life on a remote sheep farm. That Amanda herself reads the monthly Dalesman columns that make up the book, adds to the authenticity of the story.

Good but different

I enjoy Amanda’s antics, and her previous books. This one has a different flavour, being the collection of monthly columns for the Dalesman. The stories are colourful and entertaining, but naturally not as in depth as in her other books. Amanda narrating herself makes it seem more natural, but the sound quality is quite distracting.
