Jennifer Rennick

Country Affairs

Headline, London, 1995, 314 pp.


Once a year Kate Hopegood meets the man she loved before she met her husband, but this year
is different. This year, Patrick’s wife turns up, furious, leaving Kate to depart in disgrace. She
decides to have a complete break, and goes to work as a housekeeper to an elderly colonel in
rural Gloucestershire. This is not the idyll she imagines, particularly when the colonel’s daughter
turns out to be Patrick’s (hunting mad) wife.

Jennifer Rennick worked as a secretary in the House of Commons, and as a press officer in a London hotel. She has written several books on medieval history, but her one work of fiction reflects her keenness on the horse. Country Affairs has a hunting background: it’s a good and entertaining read, with a cast of thoroughly engaging characters.


Finding the book: out of print, but easy to find.
