Town and Country

By Wendy Lewis

Jill’s life has been turned upside down. 

A modern urban woman, she finds herself completely thrown into the unknown when her husband Gerald buys a small farm in Sussex and moves her from her comfortable London flat.

Whilst he commutes to the City, she is left behind to take charge of four pregnant cows, some hyperactive sheep and a psychotic cockerel. 

As the stresses of their new life mount, Jill and Gerald’s relationship falls apart, and he begins an affair with his secretary.

Meanwhile, back on the farm one disaster follows another. 

However, the appearance of the mysterious and handsome Conor starts Jill’s heart thumping.

Will she find romance on her Sussex farm?

Can Conor rescue her from a cheating husband and unruly farm animals?

Or will the culture clash between town and country prove too much?

‘Town and Country’ is an funny yet moving story of the clash between two world’s. It is perfect for fans of Jilly Cooper and Erica James. 

Wendy Lewis tells her tale of the down-shifter’s dream, the agony and the ecstasy of rural re-location, with charm and wit.

As a failed dairy farmer myself, I found it too easy to identify with Wendy Lewis’s main characters. Several times she made me laugh (and wince) aloud. — John Humphrys – Presenter – Radio 4 ‘The Today Programme’
