"1939 A View from the Hill" begins in a village just outside Exeter. The photos in this gallery are of locations within a mile or so of the city center. My mother grew up near here and these lanes and the river were her playground more than 80 years ago. Like the characters in the books, she knew this area well in the time before and during the Second World War. In the sequel, "1949, The Other Side of the Hill", very little has changed since the end of the second world war, and people are wondering where the truth about what happened really lies.
