The Farm At Black Hills by , Book Resume:
An engaging woman-against-the-odds story about an entrepreneurial South Island sheep farmer. When Beverley Forrester's beloved husband Jim died unexpectedly, not only did she have to deal with her grief, but she suddenly had a farm to run too. Although she had grown up in a farming family, she herself had trained and worked as an occupational therapist for many years. So there was a lot to learn and new tasks to undertake - not least the need to win the trust of Jim's loyal farm workers and the community in the close-knit North Canterbury area. She set to work, and with the help of those around her, she learned to farm, and has also developed a successful brand of natural coloured, undyed, chemical-free yarns sold internationally, and her own fashion label, which debuted at New Zealand Fashion Week. Resilient, big-hearted, entrepreneurial and determined, Beverley Forrester is a treasure and this is her delightful and engaging story. It's also the story of North Canterbury's beautiful Hurunui district, and the pioneers who built it.
