Flatlands, by Sue Hubbard

Staff Pick

Set in the unforgiving landscape of World War II, Hubbard’s novel focuses on the budding friendship between a teenage evacuee and a conscientious objector. This skillful evocation of connection in a time of ruin is rendered with palpable ache and longing as Hubbard vividly conjures Lincolnshire in all its wild beauty, immersing us in a seemingly barren landscape revitalized by the songs of migratory birds--just as her characters' friendship gives rise to hope out of hopelessness and makes the unbearable bearable.
