Shortlisted for the Wainwright Prize for Nature Writing 2021

Following the hugely successful Sunday Times Bestseller, Wainwright Golden Beer Book Prize nominee and Costa shortlisted, The Salt Path, Raynor Winn returns with her second brilliant book.

This time the narrative explores the difficulties surrounding the return to mainstream life after a period of homelessness.

Recovering self-esteem and trust, in herself and in others, is harder than she expected. Raynor and her husband Moth continue to face his debilitating illness, until an incredible gesture by someone who read The Salt Path changes everything.

This book is about readjusting to life after homelessness, but also about recovering trust and self-belief after a traumatic event - feelings that can translate to many episodes in the life of any of us.

The Wild Silence
Not as good as The Salt Path. I expected more of a journey. It was a bit flat.
