For Nick and Lesley Albert, swapping the hectic intensity of modern Britain for the peace of a tumble-down farmhouse in rural west Ireland was like a dream come true. But three years later, with the economy crashing and the house refurbishments unfinished, their plan for a tranquil life is falling apart. Are they in danger of replicating the very lifestyle they had hoped to escape, or can they get their lives back on track? Only time will tell.

Chock-full of laughter and with a few tears too, this third instalment of their quirky life in County Clare sees these whimsical chicken farmers forge ahead with the renovations, make new friends, rescue more dogs, eat a lot of cake and dance joyfully, whilst enduring floods, droughts, fire and ice, and debating the curious problem of what to do with 300 eggs.

"Nick has has done it again, another de force. Reading his wonderful writing makes makes me wish I was 20 to 30 years younger and had the courage to make their giant,courageous leap to a new country and a new life. In fact it should be easier for me as my wife’s family live there!
Sorry Nick, but already I’m looking forward to your next book, whether it be a thriller or more news about your life in Ireland. Please keep it going as long as you can."

"Another humorous, easy read from Nick Albert, I enjoyed it immensely. As a lover of dogs myself it was great to hear about the things his dogs got up to, although sad in places as well. Looking forward to the next book in this charming series."

"An easy style of writing. People you care about and enjoy following their journey. Love hearing about their family of dogs."

"Another brilliant book from Nick. tried to read it in one sitting but so engrossed that I couldn't rush. He brings the countryside, the animals and his family to life with wonderful descriptions; never afraid to reveal his own feelings.Love the curious pine martin (the same happened to me!) Roll on the next book."
