**Introductory offer price** For Jane Yeadon, growing up on a farm in the north of Scotland in the 1950s is at times idyllic but it can also be incredibly challenging. And when her father is killed in a tragic motorbike accident, it has a devastating effect on everyone as they struggle to make ends meet and hold on to the family farm. While her mother turns her hand to writing popular newspaper articles on the life of a tenant crofter to bring in extra money, Jane and her big sister Elizabeth help out Dod, the farm grieve, with the hard work that has to be done around the farm. And there's always plenty to do on top of the usual school work as Jane learns about her place in the scheme of things the hard way, while experiencing country life, the village school and animal adventures, and meeting a whole host of unforgettable characters along the way. Telling Tales is a nostalgic and affectionate account of growing up on a small family farm that vividly evokes a way of life which, although so recent, is now all but forgotten.
