Rain: Four Walks in English Weather

by Melissa Harrison
£8.99   paperback  Faber & Faber (2017)

Rain: Four Walks in English Weather by Melissa Harrison An evocative meditation on the English landscape in wet weather by the acclaimed novelist and nature writer, Melissa Harrison.
 
Whenever rain falls, our countryside changes. Fields, farms, hills and hedgerows appear altered, the wildlife behaves differently, and over time the terrain itself is transformed.
 
In Rain, Melissa Harrison explores our relationship with the weather as she follows the course of four rain showers, in four seasons, across Wicken Fen, Shropshire, the Darent Valley and Dartmoor.
 
Blending these expeditions with reading, research, memory and imagination, she reveals how rain is not just an essential element of the world around us, but a key part of our own identity too.
