Will Harker has always believed the best things in life are free: the great outdoors, a good laugh, a perfectly steeped brew. He’s earning his keep as an apprentice farrier at Stanley Lampitt’s workshop – although his gaffer would say he makes half the money and causes double the trouble.

But business isn’t exactly booming. While Stanley’s trying to make ends meet Will is handed a wedge of family inheritance – and a problem as big as a horse to sort out…

As every Yorkshireman knows, where there’s muck there’s brass. So just how dirty are Will’s hands going to get?

A laugh-out-loud caper packed with Yorkshire humour, heart and charm, from the author of Forging On – longlisted for the Comedy Women in Print Prize 2019.
