Cara’s Land - Elvi Rhodes



Cara Dunning first came to the wild and remote Beckwith Farm in the Yorkshire Dales as a young landgirl during the Second World War. Beckwith was isolated, sometimes beautiful, sometimes inhospitable, and had been owned by the Hendry family since 1700.

When Cara fell in love with Edward Hendry, it was not what her family had intended for her. Edward was fifteen years older than Cara, a pacifist, and a widower with two children, one of whom bitterly resented her new stepmother. But Cara was determined to make the marriage work, in spite ol the hard life on the farm, in spite of Edward’s reserved personality and the shadow of Nancy, his former wife.

Her greatest friend on the farm was Edward’s mother. Edith Hendry, a loyal and wise daleswoman, was to see the young bride through many tragedies, many vicissitudes and the years of trying to run the sheep farm on her own. And as Cara’s life began to change, so Cara changed too, finding a complete and utter happiness where she had never expected.
