Book Review: The Salt Path by Raynor Winn
“If we hadn’t done this there’d always have been things we wouldn’t have known, a part of ourselves we wouldn’t have found, resilience we didn’t know we had.”
Raynor Winn, The Salt Path
I was given this book as a present from friends and wasn’t sure what to expect as I know that their taste is a little different to my own but I was hooked from the first page.
The Salt Path is a true story of determination and courage. The story is about coming to terms with grief and the healing power of the natural world.
The story reflects on the idea of ‘home’ and how it can be lost, rebuilt and rediscovered in the most unexpected ways. Raynor Winn talks about walking the Salt Path and how it changed her perception of 'home'.
The Salt Path referred to is the 630 miles of the South West Coast Path, from Somerset to Dorset, via Devon and Cornwall.
There is now a Second Book in entitled ‘The Wild Silence’
