Raynor Winn  The Wild Silence

Following the best-selling, 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.

I very much enjoyed the events I came to at the Dorchester  Literary festival. It was all very well organised. The sessions on The Seabird's cry, Bee Quest, and The Otter's Tale were brilliant.

Thank YOU for hosting us so brilliantly on Sunday. Dad and I had a great time and were both really impressed by the very smooth running of your festival. It was a total pleasure being there with you, Helen, and the team. Congrats to all concerned on a job well done. It was fun to be a part of it.
