About this product
- DescriptionWhen Sylvia's dashing new husband, John, offers to whisk them from the 1950's grime of city living to take the tenancy of a country pub, Sylvia dreams of an idyllic life in the Yorkshire Dales.Sylvia, John and her brother, Robert arrive in Wharfedale to find The George at Hubberholme near-derelict. Without electricity or mains water, and only an ancient Aga to cook food, Sylvia embodies true Yorkshire grit and sets out to make The George her domain. With their impenetrable accents and interesting dress sense, the Upper Dales farmers drift in on curiosity to laugh at the Townies, and stay to become true friends.But with a spendthrift husband who has an eye for the ladies, Sylvia is a rocky yet humorous road that encompasses celebrity guests, loveable locals, wayward animals, and an upstairs ghost.
- Author BiographyJean Robinson was a textile technologist with the Wood Industries Research Association in Leeds when she and her new husband, together with her brother, made the life-changing decision to take on, unseen, The George in Upper Wharfedale. With no experience in either the licensing trade or in farming the 22 acres of moorland that came with the near derelict pub, Jean became the driving force behind the successful business, the basis for George and Me. After nine years the Inn was sold from under them, and Jean returned to her original work, rising to become Technical Director of an International Company. Now with her family and a menagerie of ex-racehorses, dogs and cats, she enjoys 'retirement' in a village in East Yorkshire.
