A beautiful and moving tale of self-discovery, The Farmer's Wife deals with the truth about relationships that the Cinderella stories never tell us. She got the fairytale ending - but that was just the beginning... When Rebecca Saunders married her party boy Charlie Lewis and they settled down on her beloved farm, she thought the hard work was over. Ten years and two kids later, the idyllic future she imagined seems like a distant fantasy. Her life is a never-ending cycle of running the household and bringing up two small children. There's little time to keep the romance alive, and when Rebecca and Charlie are faced with money troubles, they have very different ideas about how to save the farm. Rebecca is starting to wonder if she ever really knew Charlie - or even herself. Is it too late to rekindle their love? Can they find their way back to one another or has the gulf become too wide?
