I was browsing through the hashtag for
On Twitter, when i discovered
An audio sample of the book
Ther person reading the sample is the sister of one of the actors in The Archers, hence it being posted on the hashtag.
Our Country Nurse is all about a health visitor who has come to work in a little village called Totly in Kent. The book is not just a dull account of her life there, rather it deals with many issues such as poverty and emigration. The book is very fast paced, and you can’t help imagining being in Sarahs’ shoes as she deals with many new mums and babies. The way the book is written, it almost feels fictional but it is Sarahs’ real life experiences. I found myself getting carried along and wishing somehow that i could have had a health visitor like Sarah as she appears so kind and is probably what the mothers need to hear and that they are doing just fine. It is easy to imagine you are in fact one of the mothers being helped by Sarah.
I was delighted when i discovered that Sarah has also written another book, “The New Arrival” which i can’t wait to start reading.
You can buy the books, as well as read some advice if you are a mother with a new baby on
As well as on Amazon and on Ibooks on IOS.
I can’t wait to get stuck in to the next one :).
I can’t be bothered posting this weeks spoilers for
In case you were wondering where they had got to. I don’t think i will post them at all in future, since this is a new blog, after all, and i’m sure you all don’t want to read the spoilers for the week. I usually just posted them for the sake of it really. Let me know sure if you would want me to post them.
Anyway….i’ll have to get more readers i think. I got the links thing working by the way, so i’m able to do that now.

home thoughts from oxford
When Ruth is leaving for Oxford, she gets upset because she discovers that Pip has chosen to go shopping instead of being there to see her off. Josh and Ben have made her a card which says “Have a wicked time”, and David tells her she should go to oxford more often.
Sam arrives at the hotel and checks in. He orders flowers and champagne. Ruth rings him to say that she’s stuck in heavy traffic. She doesn’t seem too excited about what awaits her at the hotel.
Pip comes home, and asks when Ruth is coming back. David persuades her to stay while he does the milking, and Piptells him that she thinks they’re splitting up. David assures her they’re sorting things out, that he and Ruth love one another and love the children. it will all work out. Pip seems convinced and agrees to text Ruth to say she’s safely home.
Sam rings Ruth, who’s in another traffic jam. By now she’s even less enthusiastic. When he rings off, Pip rings her, and tells her brightly that things at Brookfield are fine. She and David are cooking. It’s the final straw for Ruth. As she reaches the hotel, she asks Sam to come down to the car. She can’t come inside; everything has changed. She can’t leave the children, and she can’t lie any more to David. She can’t go through with things, and is so, so sorry. It’s over.
