The Farmer Wants a Wife | [Maeve Haran]

The Farmer Wants a Wife

Flora Parker is sassy and stylish, with a big mouth and a tendency to act before she thinks - which is how she ends up getting drunk and on the front of a newspaper in her Wonderbra. Filled with self-loathing, she retreats to her aunt's house in the country, where she finds an overbearing uncle, a farm on the brink of bankruptcy, a child who won't come out of the airing cupboard, and a precocious ten year old.

Publisher's Summary

Flora Parker is sassy and stylish, with a big mouth and a tendency to act before she thinks - which is how she ends up getting drunk and on the front of a newspaper in her Wonderbra. Filled with self-loathing, she retreats to her aunt's house in the country, where she finds an overbearing uncle, a farm on the brink of bankruptcy, a child who won't come out of the airing cupboard and a precocious ten year old.

But instead of running away, she itches to put it right, especially when the farmer next door announces a bet: he will give his farm and glorious farmhouse to whichever of his handsome nephews finds a wife by Michaelmas. So Flo takes up matchmaking. Meanwhile she falls in love with a way of life that is muddy, smelly, and under threat. But is she prepared to put her head on the altar to keep it?

    "Lovely story - slightly irritating narration"

    This is a lovely escapist book particularly if your heart is in the country but you live in a town. Unfortunately the narrator was OK but not the best and obviously recorded the book on the first reading as sometmes the emphasis was in the wrong part of sentences.
