Romantic Novelists' Association

Native Soil is a tale of conflict between love and loyalty. Impetuous, rich, and something of a snob, widowed Olivia (29) buys a remote semi-derelict hill farm in the Yorkshire Dales and dedicates her life to nature and restorative agriculture. She vows never to re-marry – but then she meets Andrew, celebrity TV environmentalist and man-with-a-mission. As their relationship deepens, despite the concern of their families and colleagues, they discover that his need to travel for science conflicts with her responsibility to stay and manage the farm. How can they find their happily-ever-after?
