Review

Ravenseat Farm, high in the Yorkshire Dales, is buffeted by two ferocious winter storms, so it’s all hands to the pumps for the Owens as they make their animals safe. It’s a warm, charming picture of a sturdy, happy family facing adversity together, always with a smile, as Storm Ciara dumps a month’s rain in 24 hours, turning brooks and streams into roiling, unruly rivers.

The family’s trailer is an early casualty, washed away by the torrent from the farmyard and ending up a kilometre downstream, marooned on a bank, bashed and forlorn.

Farm life cannot stop, though, and Amanda and Clive take delivery of a big, big bull.

Summary

The family struggles through two devastating winter storms, during which 100mph winds batter the farm and more than a month's worth of rainfall occurs in the space of just 24 hours. While Clive and Reuben brave the elements to keep the animals fed, Amanda can do nothing to stop the livestock trailer being washed away downstream in a flood. Once the first wave of extreme weather is over, they face a heavy snowfall. On the plus side, this new turn in the conditions gives Miles the chance to practice snowboarding.
