Leaving London and her ex-husband, Luc, behind, Katie and her 14-year-old daughter, Poppy, move into their very own, very ramshackle cottage near the village of Christmas Steepleton on the Dorset coast. Harvest Cottage has been unloved for many years, so the job of bringing it back to life is a slow and expensive one. So, with funds running low, Katie jumps at the chance when a film company asks to use the cottage as a location. But even as things are looking up, as harvest time passes and autumn chill starts to bite, the prospect of a cold winter in the country is daunting.
Needing an escape, Dora swapped city living for life as a shepherdess on her grandad’s Yorkshire farm. More than a decade later Dora is still there, now farming the 50 acres and caring for the 100 rare sheep by herself.

When Dora’s glamorous but quarrelsome sister Cass, her teenage nephew Thor and his handsome tutor Nat turn up for an unexpected and unreasonably long stay, life on the farm is thrown into chaos.

But Phinn Baxter (that’s Dr. Phinneas Baxter) is no drunken layabout, as Molly is soon to discover, with a PhD in astrophysics and a tortured past that is a match for Molly’s own disastrous love life.
