Leah is accused of a crime she didn't commit. Dumped by Adam, the man she planned to marry, she escapes to Aunt Jayne's smallholding in the Kent village of Winkleigh Marsh. Heartbroken and homeless, she strives to clear her name and deal with her emotions.
Jayne treats Leah's unhappiness with herbal remedies, cowslip wine and common sense in equal measure. In return Leah works hard for the delicious home-cooked meals they share. She wrestles with sheep, breaks nails and gets stuck in the mud - learning as much about herself as she does about farming. Soon Leah is happy milking cows, mucking out pigs and falling halfway in love with Duncan, a dishy tractor driver.
Back in London, steps are being taken to investigate what's happened to the missing money. It looks as though the real embezzler must soon be unmasked and Leah will have to chose between resuming her old life or starting a new one.
That's when her problems really start.

Patsy maintains a blog where she gives details of free to enter writing competitions, rambles on about about writing, gardening, cakes, and other random stuff that interests her. She'd love you to visit Patsy-Collins.blogspot.com and perhaps share your thoughts on
these important matters.
She entered Creative Print Publishing's monthly competition after featuring it on her blog and encouraging other writers to have a go.
She decided to follow her advice and when she was informed her story, 'Escape to the Country' had beaten over 600 other novels and would therefore be published she was very pleased she did.
'Escape to the Country' is her first published novel. It's set in Kent, a county she visits regularly for the wonderful scenery, gorgeous gardens and historic buildings. Patsy likes to research her stories thoroughly, so before writing this story she lived on a small farm.
