Running for the Hills : A Family Story Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

When Jenny and Robert fall in love in the late 1960s they decide to build a new future together, away from the city.

They escape to an isolated sheep farm nestled on a mountainside.

It has no running water but it is beautiful and rugged.

Their young sons can roam wild. As their flock struggles, money runs low and rain drives in horizontally across the fields, inside the ancient house their marriage begins to unravel.

Wilful and romantic, Jenny refuses to abandon her farm.

She will bring her boys up single-handedly on the mountain.

Together they embark on a perilous adventure. Running for the Hills is astonishing family memoir - Horatio Clare vividly recreates his mother's extraordinary way of life and his own bewitching childhood in a magical story of love and struggle.
