Description

In her Barleybridge series Rebecca Shaw weaves her magic around the animals and the people in a busy veterinary hospital bringing them to life and sharing with us their troubles and triumphs. A COUNTRY AFFAIR It is Kate's first day in her new job and she is more apprehensive than she thought possible. But there is no time for nerves as she finds herself flung into the hectic world of the busy vet's practice and the clients who visit it. But it's not just the animals who win Kate's affections: there's Scott with his wicked sense of humour. COUNTRY WIVES There's trouble in Barleybridge. The smooth running of the practice is disrupted by the new locum, Dan, with his unreasonable demands. The wives connected to the practice are determined that something has to be done. COUNTRY LOVERS Rhodri, the Welsh vet, is deeply in love with a farmer's daughter, Megan, but doesn't know how to cope with her invalid father. It is Dan who finds the solution. Meanwhile Kate is desperate to fulfil her ambition to become a vet.show more
