Flatlands, by Sue Hubbard

Staff Pick

Set in World War II England, Flatlands follows the friendship between Freda, a young London girl evacuated to the countryside during the blitz, and Philip, a conscientious objector who has retreated to the coastal, marshy Fens, where he paints and watches the geese. When Freda is abused by her host family and helps Philip nurse a wounded bird back to health, Hubbard's quiet and moving story traces the values of pure friendship and the small, simple choices we make to better our world and our souls--even amid the horrors of war.
