Summary

A stunning book from Amanda Owen - shepherdess, wife, mother of nine children, best-selling author and star of C5’s Our Yorkshire Farm - that brings her world to life in glorious colour.

In Celebrating the Seasons, Amanda shares funny and charming stories about life with her family and their many four-legged charges and describes their activities at Ravenseat, from lambing and shearing to haymaking and feeding the flock in midwinter. Her gorgeous photographs showcase the famous Swaledale landscape she writes about, from the sweeping moors to rare wildflowers and the elusive hares glimpsed in the field.

She lives in tune with nature, and Amanda's attitude to food is the same. She believes in buying good, seasonal ingredients when it comes to feeding her family and includes her favourite recipes here, from wild garlic lamb with hasselback roast potatoes to rhubarb and custard crumble cake and Yorkshire curd tart. 

As inspirational as Amanda herself, this book is a beautiful keepsake that will delight everyone who has followed her adventures so far.

Another wonderful book by Amanda

Another wonderful book by Amanda who brings it all to life. As she reads, so I am taken there in my imagination. I await another when she has the time to write it.

Is there nothing Amanda can't do

I found the book interesting and entertaining considering it is not the type of book I would normally listen to. ( I prefer science fiction ) Amanda's read style is excellent I could listen to her for hours. She explains things we non shepherds don't understand so clearly that it makes it more enjoyable. I hope Amanda will narate the first 3 books she has writen it would improve them immensely.

Where has her accent gone?!

Lovely listen, always enjoy Amanda Owen's books. We lead similar lives and I relate to her. The way she describes the day to day of small family farming, is a true account of this way of life.
My only problem with this audiobook is Amanda's new accent, the Yorkshire accent is disappearing and a few southern pronunciations slipped in. Such as masterclass as marrsterclarrss.
