When she successfully applies for a junior reporter role at The Tyke a magazine serving the Yorkshire Dales she's thrilled - even if she only gets the position because so many men are away fighting. Bobby moves to the sleepy village of Silverdale but she quickly discovers life in the countryside is a different world. Not only does she need to win over the local animals but there are a whole host of eccentric characters to get to know not least of whom is her editor's younger brother: charming but infuriating village vet Charlie. As Bobby struggles to be taken seriously by the gruff dalesfolk she starts to wonder if she's made a huge mistake. Will the city girl ever find her place?
