Escape To The Orchard

Jane is approaching 60, looking after her mother and desperate for a more exciting lifestyle. She decides to buy an orchard and grow truffle trees in the hope of making a fortune and escaping her humdrum existence. The problem is that the orchard is in Devon, miles away from Essex where she lives. Jane up-sticks to Devon and rents a property nearby for six months, anxious to make a new start. But she has to contend with the driest summer on record and watch as her beloved fruit trees wither and die. Can Jane turn things around and make a new life for herself in deepest Devon? Armed with nothing but a good sense of humour and determination, and with a little help from her daughter Suze, Jane puts her best foot forward and plunges head-first into rural life. A life-enhancing and joyous adventure through life's ups and downs, this is an inspirational story for everyone who longs to "escape", whatever their circumstances.
