Jo Patterson's husband has given her the ultimate gift--a cottage in Yorkshire. However, he's neglected to leave any money in their joint accounts, so she ekes out her living by sewing curtains and beating the bushes for grouse at the castle shoots. If you can make it through the Yorkshire accent that appears sporadically, Jan Francis's uninhibited and enthusiastic reading of the entertaining tale is definitely worth the listening. Each time you return to the tape her ebullient voice catches you up on the shenanigans of Jo's husband and his mistress, the characters upstairs and downstairs in the castle, and the possibility of romance for Jo.
