Raynor writes exquisitely . . . it’s a tale of triumph; of hope over despair, of love over everything

About this book:

The Wild Silence, the incredible follow-up to one of the most talked about books of the decade – the phenomenon and 75-week Sunday Times bestselling The Salt Path.

‘It was the land, the earth, the deep humming background to my very being’ In 2016, days before they were unjustly evicted from their home, Raynor Winn was told her husband Moth was dying. Instead of giving up they embarked on a life-changing journey: walking the 630-mile South West Coast Path, living by their wits, determination and love of nature. But all journeys must end and when the couple return to civilisation they find that four walls feel like a prison, cutting them off from the sea and sky that sustained them – that had saved Moth’s life.

So when the chance to re-wild an old Cornish farm comes their way, they grasp it, hoping they’ll not only reconnect with the natural world but also find themselves once again on its healing path . . .


‘Beautiful, a thrill to read . . .you feel the world is a better place because Raynor and Moth are in it’ The Times

‘Brilliant, powerful and touching . . .will connect with anyone who has triumphed over adversity’ Stephen Moss, author and naturalist

‘A beautiful, luminous and magical piece of writing’ Rachel Joyce, author of The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry
