A charming, sometimes heartbreaking, oftentimes laugh-out-loud journey through the seasons with a New Zealand country animal vet.
Danielle Hawkins is a farm vet, mother, sheep farmer's wife and author. From calving cows to literary lunches, pet lambs to parenting, occasionally overwhelmed but almost always sure she wouldn't want it any other way, her diary celebrates the joys of rural living.
Bestselling NZ author Danielle Hawkins lives on a sheep and beef farm near Otorohanga with her husband and two children. She works part-time as a large animal vet, and writes when the kids are at school and she's not required for farming purposes. She is a keen gardener, an intermittently keen cook and an avid reader. Her other talents include memorising poetry, making bread and zapping flies with an electric fly swat. She tends to exaggerate to improve a story, with the result that her husband believes almost nothing she says. Look for @DanielleHawkinsauthor on Facebook.
