In 2017, Sophie Pierce's life changed forever when her twenty-year-old son Felix died suddenly and unexpectedly. Thrown into an unimaginable new reality, she had to find a way to survive. By writing letters to Felix - composed during walks and swims taken close to his burial place by the River Dart - Sophie gradually learned how to live in the landscape of sudden loss, navigating the weather and tides of grief. 'The Green Hill' collects these letters alongside Sophie's account of the years following Felix's death, into which she weaves poignant memories of his life. What results is a deeply moving, beautifully captured record of how - amid the rivers and rocks of Dartmoor, and in the sea off the South Devon coast - Sophie was able to hold on to and nurture her bond with Felix, both in her mind and through a physical engagement with the landscape - actively mourning, rather than grieving.
