Following the Sunday Times bestselling, prize winning book The Salt Path, Raynor Winn returns with her profoundly moving second memoir.

In The Salt Path, Raynor and her husband Moth head to the windswept coastline to try to find a way through homelessness, and ultimately to find themselves. Now in The Wild Silence, they come back to four walls, but the sense of home is elusive and returning to normality is not easy.

Raynor and Moth continue to face his debilitating illness, as Raynor struggles to recover trust in herself and others. Until someone who read The Salt Path makes an unbelievable offer and they find themselves living on an overused farm, tasked with revitalising the land and returning the wildlife to its hedgerows. With only their life-long love of each other and the natural world to help them, they begin to rediscover the meaning of home.

Reviews for The Wild Silence: The Sunday Times Bestseller from the author of The Salt Path

Profoundly moving and emotionally transcendent reading * The List * The Wild Silence confirms Raynor as a natural and extremely talented writer with an incredible way with words. This book gives us all what we wanted to know at the end of The Salt Path which is what happened next. So moving, it made me cry . . . repeatedly * BBC * To follow Raynor Winn on her songline back to Cornwall is to know how it feels to walk yourself into the land you love and find peace at the end of the journey * Brian Jackman, travel journalist for The Sunday Times * A beautiful, luminous and magical piece of writing * author of The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry *
