Following the hugely successful Sunday Times bestseller, Wainwright Golden Beer Book Prize nominee and Costa shortlister, The Salt Path, we're delighted to make another exclusive announcement here tonight about a new book from the hugely talented Raynor Winn.
In Wild Silence Raynor tells us about taking on a chronically over-farmed piece of land that was given to her and Moth by a reader who was moved by their story in The Salt Path. 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. Through Raynor's exceptional writing she will explore the hope she has of revitalising and of re-wilding this land - and also themes of lifelong love, nature and what it means to find a home.

As we pass the first day of spring, The Salt Path author reflects on the books that have shaped her from the genre, from fictional children’s stories to environmental polemics.
Just days after Raynor Winn learns that her husband of 32 years is terminally ill, their home is taken away and they lose their business. In The Salt Path, she explains how walking the 630 mile long South West Coast Path changed her perception of 'home,' and led to a journey of salvation.
