You're not doing very much at the moment, darling. I don't suppose you'd care to house-sit for a while? It's a beautiful old house in a lovely part of the world..."

Thus begins the endearing, hilarious story of two fixer-uppers and old house and a young woman and their efforts to recapture their true lustre.

When Hetty Longden, freshly dumped and broken hearted, agrees to look after her great uncle's long abandoned mansion in the countryside, she is at something of a lifetime low. With no job, no lover, no prospects, and no particular talent for resuscitating crumbling estates, she hopes for nothing more than a good old-fashioned escape.

What she finds, though, is a cast of quirky and ever present neighbours, a couple of SNAGs (Sensitive New Age Guys), some very humourless bank officials, two disarming little canines, one gracious, dilapidated, romantic old house and just maybe, enough elbow grease to polish everything up again.

A British best seller that's as inviting as an elegant old house full of unexplored rooms (after a good scrubbing-down, of course), Stately Pursuits is the funniest, smartest, and warmest read of the season.

About the Author

Katie Fforde lives in Gloucestershire with her husband and some of her three children. Her hobbies are ironing and housework but unfortunately, she has almost no time for them as she feels it is her duty to keep a close eye on the afternoon chat shows.
