Summary

It is 1916. The world has gone to war, and young Leo Sercombe, hauling coal aboard the HMS Queen Mary, is a long way from home. The wild, unchanging West Country roads of his boyhood seem very far away from life aboard a battlecruiser. Skimming through those West Country roads on her motorcycle, Lottie Prideaux defies the expectations of her class and sex as she covertly studies to be a vet. 

In a world torn asunder by war, everything dances in flux: how can the old ways life survive, and how can the future be imagined, in the face of such unimaginable change? How can Leo, lost and wandering in the strange and brave new world, ever hope to find his way home?

An extraordinary trilogy

The descriptions, the observations, the journeyings, all make these three volumes so alive. Add to this Tim Pears mastery of not telling too much and Jonathon Keeble’s excellent narration makes finishing the third volume like losing a special world.

A stunning set of book

Some of the best I have listened to. Beautiful written. The story draws you in. You really care what happens to the Leo and Lottie.

an homage to the craftsmen of yesteryear

Jonathan Keeble completes the narration of this emotive trilogy. Leo and Lottie continue their path toward adulthood and the healing power of horses.
