Torn between two men, Sally must follow her heart and decide if love will lead her to the city or the countryside. Twenty-Two year old Sally Rayton returns to the family farm she deserted four years ago to bury her grandfather. Her plan: to settle her grandfather's estate and return to her life in the city with her boyfriend, Trevor Mattson. Her childhood friend, Jack Smith, has other ideas. Jack convinces Sally to transform the farm into a brewery and fulfill her grandfather's dream while keeping the Rayton Farm in the family. Sally works side-by-side with Jack while Trevor is hundreds of miles away in the city. The more time she spends with Jack, the stronger her feelings are for him. When Trevor shows up to propose to Sally right before Christmas and finds her in Jack's embrace, she must make the biggest choice of her life: true love.

Some plants thrive in each others' company. They offer protection from bugs and disease, provide shade and enrich the earth with nutrients. Planting basil, for example, next to tomatoes helps to ward off whitefly and a patch of nasturtiums not only looks good, but keeps the nasty aphids away from your runner beans. Some plants, on the other hand, just simply don't get on. The A-Z of Companion Planting explains the theory and the practice. It looks at its usage historically and brings the practice up to date with today's gardening techniques and our desire for chemical-free vegetables. Then the author guides you through which crops, herbs, grasses and fruits can be planted together (and equally important, which mustn't) to make sure that you get the very best crop with the highest yields - and naturally! Jayne Neville, herself a practitioner of companion planting, discusses and explains the reasoning behind it, giving the reader a fuller and more rounded understanding of an age-old gardening practice which modern reliance on 'chemical warfare' has unjustly marginalised. With the current trends towards both permaculture and no-dig gardening, this might just be your passport to healthy and environment-friendly crop production! Combined with a handy, easy to use diagnostic table and clear, easy to understand line drawings, Jayne Neville's book is destined to be a classic reference book on this unscientifically proven yet 'known to work' area of gardening.
