This enchanting book is an international best-seller. City folk Rosie and her boyfriend have always dreamt of a countryside cottage. The nouveaux-riche Samantha and Guy are also seeking rural bliss: a mansion with a mile long drive and a team of gardeners. The village of Eight Mile Bottom seems the idyllic hide-away for them. But as dreams become reality, they soon realise that village life can be far from peaceful.

"Rosie and Mark join the parade of Londoners who move to the countryside for the quiet life. What they find is a village more lively, gossip-filled, contentious, and noisy than much of the city. Narrator Gerri Halligan adds her own brand of wry humor as she skillfully portrays farmers, a reclusive rock star, the world's nosiest and most talkative postman, and the rest of the small-town worthies. The action is mostly verbal, and the sparring is enhanced by Halligan's splendid delivery and timing. A fun look at modern women and contemporary life in an English village. S.G.B.
