We were in the middle of the heatwave, so I went from seeing the news full of possible hosepipe bans and water shortages to reading about 'the watering' and was sat outside in the sunshine hearing sheep bleating in a nearby field whilst he was tending his flock.

I found it an enjoyable, light read and enjoyed the descriptions of the place and of all the individual characters that he met.

Pat Morris-jones | 1373 comments Oops. Wrong book. Haha. Well, still lovely summer read. Read two books in a row. Driving over lemons is by far the best.
