Description
James Aden has his hands full as he leaves the comparative sanity of a position on an estate in Scotland when his wife Sophie inherits a farm in Suffolk, in this second book of Tales from a Country Estate. To supplement the income from the farm, Aden takes a job as an agent on Sir Charles Buckley's vast estate, Frampton Hall. The list of problems and troublesome types that Aden has to deal with is virtually endless, with rogue chimney pots, unsavory tenants, and delinquent sheep giving him fraught days and sleepless nights. Then there's the farm secretary, Gail, whose turbulent love life provides James with even more headaches than do the sheep. Rory Clark, himself a former land agent at Badminton in Gloucestershire and at Althorp in Northamptonshire, met a wide variety of eccentric characters while working for the landed gentry—the modern descendants of the Downton Abbey set. Clark's experiences inspired this novelized memoir from alter ego James Aden, and two other books much like it. Clark now works for the forestry commission where, one assumes, the trees are a bit less batty.
