A novel by

 
 
From the African dust of the Boer War to the mud and death of Flanders, Walking the Wrong Side of the Grass tells the moving story of a young boy ripped from his idyllic life as a forester to seek revenge in the trenches of the 1st World War. It beautifully captures the innocence of childhood and the emergence of youth thrown into the brutality of war, a story of revenge which begins in a small Derbyshire village where the cotton mill has a horrifying past.

Walking the Wrong Side of the Grass is powerfully written, evoking both the rhythms of a rural existence and the unrelenting slaughter of the 1st World War with equal clarity. Accessible to adults and teenage readers alike, it ends with a poignant evocation of the atrocities of the first day of the battle of the Somme, fought 100 years ago.
