‘At Christmas, presents change from classy clothes to boiler suits; expensive wellies become a worthwhile investment as shoes become obsolete.’
Doing it in Wellies is Sam Gray’s account of making a lifestyle choice and deciding to run her own smallholding. Not a guide or a how-to manual, this book takes the reader on a no-frills journey and offers an insight into Sam’s fabulous, manic and often unenviable life.
Women who care more for Prada than pig-pens will enjoy it. People toying with the idea of bailing from city life will learn from it. And those wanting a good read and a bit of escapism will enjoy curling up with it and getting lost among the hay and fallen apples of Middle Farm.
Sam is a person that you want to talk to. Someone you ask what she’s been up to and wait eagerly to hear her response, because nothing is what you might expect for this mother and wife living in the Shropshire Hills.
