Agent : Florence Rees
Rosanne Hodin had an orderly childhood, a misspent youth and an overloaded adulthood. She has been an office slave, a glassblower, a welder, mature student, teacher, volunteer in Africa, mother, farmer and ambivalent sailor.
She and her husband knew nothing of farming when they moved to Cornwall but learnt through a million mistakes and unwarranted optimism. Her memoir, Growing Goats and Girls, is published by Hodder Books.
