Description

"[Winn's] language makes their arduous trek luminous with the mingled menace and providence of a Turner painting."--New York Times Book Review "In polished, poignant prose, Winn reveals how their journey heals Moth slowly but surely, and brings them closer together -- landing as an inspiring story of true love."--Entertainment Weekly SHORTLISTED FOR THE COSTA BOOK AWARD The true story of a couple who lost everything and embarked on a transformative journey walking the South West Coast Path in England Just days after Raynor Winn learns that Moth, her husband of thirty-two years, is terminally ill, their house and farm are taken away, along with 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, through 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 and life-affirming journey. Powerfully written and unflinchingly honest, The Salt Path is ultimately a portrayal of home--how it can be lost, rebuilt, and rediscovered in the most unexpected ways.
