The Road To Castle Hill Zusammenfassung

The Road To Castle Hill Christine Fernyhough

A new life running a high country sheep station in New Zealand. Christine Fernyhough is well known as a leading Auckland philanthropist, having set up Books in Homes and then the Gifted Kids Programme for high achieving children in low decile schools.

A woman of energy and enterprise, she bought it and so began a new life learning to run a high country farm at some of the highest elevations in the South Island.

Warm and humorous, this inspirational book tells the story of a woman bold enough to do what many urbanites dream of-
