Scott, Mary "Away From It All" - 1977
My last novel written by Mary Scott (see my list here). I have one more, an autobiography, but that is it.
Adrian Medway is an author who is very sensitive about critics. When he inherits some money, he packs up his family and buys a small farm in the middle of nowhere. Here, he finds some hidden talents, as do his son and daughter.
As always in Mary Scott's stories, there are problems arising that you might only have in the environment she used to live in but you can also see the beauty of it, people who help each other out, no matter what.
A funny novel, a typical one by Mary Scott.
Unfortunately, Mary Scott's books are out of print and only available second hand. I have heard in the meantime, that you can buy some of them as eBooks.
"An inheritance enables the Medway family to spend a year on a farm. Far away from the hustle and bustle of the city, everyone soon discovers forgotten skills and talents in the new environment."
