When two city girls embark on an afternoon of idle window-shopping in Worcestershire and end up buying a horse, their lives swerve gloriously off course. Within weeks they have abandoned their careers in London in favour of life in the wilds of Ledbury. But their dreams of a sunny rural idyll, preferably funded by a landed local bachelor, are quick to shatter. Thrown into a hair-raising world where the horses have cocaine habits and the locals have developed their own alternative to Viagra, Molly Watson and her sister Annabel make their way through the maelstrom that is country life to hilarious effect.
Molly Watson was born in Wales. The eldest of six children, she escaped first to a trading pit in the London Financial Futures Exchange and then to Oxford. After taking a degree in Modern History at Jesus College she was appointed the Evening Standard's correspondent in New York and lived in America for several years. Despite her best efforts she is currently living back at home in the Brecon Beacons with her parents and assorted siblings.
