Inspired by Lucy Pinney's popular columns for The Times, this bewitching bucolic romp is a glorious combination of Bridget Jones, I Don't Know How She Does It and Gervase Phinn. She became a farmer's wife for love of the farmer, but can Lucy's relationship with the countryside survive two decades, divorce and more mud than she ever dreamed possible?.

Lucy Pinney wrote an extremely popular column for The Times, called Country Life, for over four years. With style and wit, Lucy chronicled life in the Devoncountryside - from diversifying wives and errant husbands, to lambing seasons and pet foxes - as well as life inside her own, less than perfect, farmhouse kitchen. Now a full-time author, Lucy has previously published two novels. She lives in Devon with her new partner Ian and three children Nat, Sam and Kathy.

When Lucy Pinney arrived in the lush Dorset countryside nearly 30 years ago she was newly married, very enthusiastic, charmingly naive and launched herself into pig-keeping, cake-baking and lamb- rearing with gusto. Length: 8 hrs and 21 mins. But nothing had prepared her for the essential oddness and precariousness of rural life. This funny, honest and affectionate member of a life spent learning to know and love the countryside, is a humorous, evocative and page-turning read.

Margery Pinchwife, his country wife

Margery Pinchwife, his country wife. She is little aware of London’s pleasures until she is informed of them inadvertently by her husband. Little by little, she loses some of her innocence until, finally, she meets Horner. A note about the names of the characters: Most of the characters in The Country Wife have "character-names"; that is to say, their names signify a character trait. This is an old tradition in British drama, a carry over from medieval morality plays where characters were named "Avarice," "Greed," "Lust," "Chastity," and so on.

Londoner Lucy Pinney arrived in the Dorset countryside a charmingly naïve and very enthusiastic newly-wed. Knowing nothing of the great outdoors, she blithely launched herself into a life of lamb-rearing, cake-baking and ploughing competitions. Battling the continual threat of bankruptcy, grappling with lambing and calving and navigating the politics and peculiarities of the countryside set, A Country Wife tells the witty, touching and evocative tale of one woman’s transition from townie bride to farmer’s wife. Set against the backdrop of the Dorset and Devon countryside, Lucy chronicles the foibles of those living off the land as well as her experiences in her own, less than perfect farmhouse kitchen.
