H is for HAWK by Helen MacDonald:
"Forty-five minutes north-east of Cambridge is a landscape I’ve come to
love very much indeed. It’s where wet fen gives way to parched sand.
It’s a land of twisted pine trees, burnt-out cars, shotgun-peppered road
signs and US Air Force bases. In spring it’s a riot of noise: constant
plane traffic, gas-guns over pea fields, woodlarks and jet engines. It’s
called the Brecklands – the broken lands – and it’s where I ended up
that morning, seven years ago, in early spring, on a trip I hadn’t
planned at all." Click heading to read rest of excerpt.
