FROM THE MILLION-COPY BESTSELLING AUTHOR

'This is what you need right now to muster hope and resilience . . . a beautiful story and a reminder that humans can endure adversity'
Stylist

'A beautiful book, it really lives up to the hype . . . an enjoyable, gentle yet moving read' Pandora Sykes on The High Low
_________

Just days after Raynor learns that Moth, her husband of 32 years, is terminally ill, their home is taken away and they lose their livelihood. With nothing left and little time, they make the brave and impulsive decision to walk the 630 miles of the sea-swept South West Coast Path, from Somerset to Dorset, via Devon and Cornwall.

Carrying only the essentials for survival on their backs, they live wild in the ancient, weathered landscape of cliffs, sea and sky. Yet through every step, every encounter and every test along the way, their walk becomes a remarkable journey.

The Salt Path is an honest and life-affirming true story of coming to terms with grief and the healing power of the natural world. Ultimately, it is a portrayal of home, and how it can be lost, rebuilt and rediscovered in the most unexpected ways.

The salt path

What a beautiful book. It brought back so many memories of the areas I visited as a child. So uplifting and can’t wait to read the sequel.

Inpuuuut ,

Amazing!

This is one of the most heartfelt books I have ever read. As I lost my own Husband of 30 years recently, all the emotions Raynor writes about each day you are with them is a day you breath in. What amazing people you are. A true inspiration to each and every one of us. This book is written with feeling, humour and emotion of each page turned. Already bought The Wild Silence.
