The Green Hill

Letters to a son

Wednesday, 29 June 2022


Dear friends, 

I'm delighted to let you know that Alex, Felix's Dad (and my husband) is working on illustrations for the book.These, we hope, will enrich it greatly.  Above is an old abandoned firing range near our home on Dartmoor, where I often go. 

So much of the book is about place, about Devon, nature and the landscape which surrounds us.  Below is a very strange boulder, also on Dartmoor, which looks as though it's been randomly dropped on earth from outer space.  It's known as the Giant's Marble (also as the Christmas Pudding). 

These and many other places have assumed a new relevance in the wake of Felix's death. They seem to resonate, to echo with memory.

Once again, thank you so much for your support.  The book is due to be published in Spring 2023.
