Overview

The landscape of North Devon is dramatic and impressive and has inspired many of our best-known artists and writers. Turner, Kingsley, R. D. Blackmore, Agatha Christie and more recently Ted Hughes, Henry Williamson and P. D. James have all made full use of its very particular qualities - 'ANCIENT SUNLIGHT' by Peter Rothwell, with its powerful sense of place, maintains that long and illustrious tradition.
Readers familiar with the novels of Henry Williamson will recognise in the title 'ANCIENT SUNLIGHT', a reference and a tribute to his fifteen volume 'Chronicle of Ancient Sunlight', which contains, particularly in the five books set during the Great War, arguably some of the best writing in the English language. Williamson, in his title for the 'Chronicle', was paying homage to Richard Jefferies, whose autobiography'The Story of My Heart' had such a profound effect upon the young soldier home from the trenches
