Barleybridge, Fiction, Modern & contemporary fiction (post c 1945)

Reissue of the first Barleybridge novel, set in a veterinary practice, by the author of the Turnham Malpas series.

Kate arrives at Barleybridge Veterinary Practice on her first day as the new receptionist. The hills rise, almost immediately from the edge of the car park, dotted all over the slopes are sheep grazing. Turning round she can see the town which has now crept up the foothills making the practice the last bit of civilisation before the hills. The setting is idyllic. Kate quickly gets to know the other staff and becomes engrossed in the work and drawn into their lives and those of the animals and their owners. But Kate has a big decision to make. Should she give up her faithful boyfriend Adam and train as a vet or should she be content to work in the practice as a receptionist? She confides in Scott because, although he is a bit of a womaniser, it is obvious that he is completely devoted to the animals and his work. But will Adam accept her decision?
