Hill farmer, mother to nine children and best-selling author. Ruth Sanderson joins Amanda Owen for a rare moment of relative peace and quiet on her farm. Amanda farms at Ravenseat, at the head of Swaledale in Yorkshire, with her husband Clive. She shows Ruth around her farm, pointing out nesting curlews and wild flowers, and describes how her love of the landscape has inspired her writing. On a summer morning in the sunshine Ravenseat looks like paradise, but Amanda tells Ruth that it's a very different place feeding the sheep in the wintertime.
