The Borrowed Hills by Scott Preston

Staff Pick

Set in the early 2000s, this novel follows the dire effects of foot-and-mouth disease on sheep farmers across the north of England. When Stephen Elliman and William Herne are forced to burn their flocks, their lives are plunged into chaos; they exact revenge by stealing livestock from the south of England, which triggers a stream of events--and, for the reader, a thriller, as crime begets crime. This story has a bit of everything, from the evocative landscape writing and witty dialogue of cocky characters to a grittiness that fairly stalks the pages.
