When teenage Laura Sale turned down Guy Mildmay's marriage proposal, she had no inkling that their paths would cross again. She'd wanted to spread her wings, Guy to remain a Norfolk farmer. But when, years later, they meet in a chic London organic restaurant, Laura is at a turning-point. Disillusioned with life as partner to an installation artist (speciality: the Mobius strip) she finds herself drawn back to the countryside of her childhood holidays. Guy revives powerful memories - and could Laura ever work things out with the often-infuriating, supremely urban Inigo? Raffaella Barker has written a hilarious tale of bad-tempered goats, art-world excess and frantic text messages - and of a woman's yearning for the vivid expression of life that only the countryside makes possible.
