In 2001, Adam Henson was chosen from 3,500 applicants to become a presenter on Countryfile. Adam's agricultural knowledge and open manner soon made him a popular figure and when the programme moved to its current Sunday evening slot in 2009, he began to present a weekly report from his own farm in the Cotswolds. There, the ups and downs of the farming calendar, as told in Adam's straight-talking fashion, soon became one of the most popular parts of the programme as viewers watched him endure the stress of TB testing and his sadness at losing valuable cattle as well as the highs of spring lambing. This is the first book by Adam Henson, and it is an enthralling, first-person account of the drama, emotion and sheer hard work that is life on Adam's Farm.

Genre: Biography & Autobiography
Continuing the Angel Kisses series of books is this second one involving a new “human assignment” granted to the magnificent angels, Rachel and Marcus. The angels’ task begins in early Ireland, around the year 450 A.D. Loosely based on fact, this story follows the life of Saint Brigid and shows her trials. In reality, her father was a warlord king of Ireland and her mother a slave. Also factual, she had a reputation for incredible appeal, both inside and out. This novel follows likely strains between the young girl’s father and slave mother and the child’s own relegation to facing an arranged marriage. So she prays to become unacceptable to men. Also, finding her striking appearance to be a handicap to serving God, she becomes hideously deformed and thus free to follow her dream. This is the second of the Angel Kisses series. Each book will follow the life of a young person, a hero or heroine, tracing documented miracles and weaving fiction into historically significant moments in time.

Red Sky in the Morning is an unputdownable historical story from Margaret Dickinson, richly evocative of the Lincolnshire landscape. A young girl stands alone in the cobbled marketplace of a small Lincolnshire town, bedraggled, soaked through and very afraid. Who is she? Where has she come from and from whom is she running away? No one knows or cares. Only kindly farmer Eddie Appleyard recognizes something in the girl that touches his heart. In a drunken haze and scarcely realizing what he is doing, Eddie takes her home, even though his wife is a tyrant, who will believe the worst. 'Is this your fancy piece?' Bertha accuses and turns Anna out into the cold, wet night. Eddie hides the girl in the hayloft and, later, in a tumbledown shepherd's cottage that becomes her new home. Anna's arrival will change their lives; Eddie's, Bertha's and even that of their young son, Tony, torn between his warring parents and the mysterious stranger. It will take years for the secrets of Anna's former life to be revealed, but Bertha bides her time and awaits her moment, little realizing the tragedy her vengeance will unleash.
