The Land, The Land by Robin Hawdon
A farmer who loves his land above all else.
A tycoon who wishes to run a rail line through it.
Political leaders with their own schemes and ambitions.
Roger Oldfield farms sheep in one of the most beautiful valleys in the Yorkshire Dales. Roger and his family – Annie his wife, daughter Lily, and autistic son, Danny – battle against the billionaire’s company, the greedy neighbouring farmer, the local council, and powerful forces within London’s political circles. Civil war looms.
Set between some of the wildest and most stunning scenery in Britain, and the heaving London metropolis, this epic story traces the clash of personalities, environmental interests, and ultimately the philosophies of twenty first century society.
“I know why people die for their land. I don’t mean die for their country. I mean die for their LAND. I’d die for my land. I’d die for a single acre of my land.”
“A fabulous read. Couldn’t put it down… fully formed characters you can empathise with, dialogue that made me chuckle, and a plot which lends itself to any number of twists and turns.” Peter Mason, ex-Daily Express.
