Horatio Clare, former BBC radio producer, remembers his formative years in this highly acclaimed memoir. The eloquent prose has been favorably compared to the poetry of Wordsworth, and London's The Daily Mail has called it "enchanting." Soon after marriage, Clare's parents moved from London to a remote sheep farm in the hills of a small Welsh village to raise their two sons. And soon after relocation, his father returned, alone, to the city. Clare and his brother grew up on the farm, under the sharp gaze of locals who marveled at his mother's independence and determination. Dealing with both the beauty of nature and the hardships-lambs whose eyes were pecked out by crows, ewes separated from their newborns-Clare grew up with a different perspective on life, love, and marriage. Growing up in the rolling hills of Wales, secluded from many modern conveniences, Clare learned strength and resilience from his mother. This memoir is a moving tribute . "Beautifully written, with enormous affection, this is a memoir of an unusual childhood, but also a careful analysis of a 'perfectly, heroically mismatched' marriage."-Publishers Weekly
