The uplifting true story of the couple who lost everything and embarked on a journey of salvation across the windswept South West coastline.
''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.

Really good read, I’m a farmers wife and know how hard the life is and when things get tight people knocking on your door, but fortunately we have always be able to scrap through, but I admire you both for the difficult journey you both made and while reading this book it felt as if I was on the journey with you both too
The Salt Path
Really uplifting story and beautifully written, I felt as if i was with them on their journey and got to know them. So happy they found kindness and hope in this ever disappointing weird world.
Looking forward to your next book.
