Summary

THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER

Uplifting, inspiring and heartening, the perfect gift for anyone who loved The Salt Path; one of the most talked about books of the decade
_______

'Extraordinary: wise, unflinching, exquisite. Profound' Observer

'A thrill to read. The nature writing is beautiful . . . heartening and comforting. You feel the world is a better place' The Times
_______

Nature holds the answers for Raynor and her husband Moth.

After walking 630 miles homeless along The Salt Path, the windswept and wild English coastline now feels like their home.

And despite Moth's terminal diagnosis, against all medical odds, he seems revitalized in nature - outside, they discover that anything is possible.

Now, life beyond The Salt Path awaits. As they return to four walls, the sense of home is illusive and returning to normality is proving difficult - until an incredible gesture by someone who reads their story changes everything:

A chance to breathe life back into a beautiful but neglected farmhouse nestled deep in the Cornish hills; rewilding the land and returning nature to its hedgerows becomes their new path.

Along the way, Raynor and Moth learn more about the land that envelopes them, find friends both new and old, and, of course, embark on another windswept adventure when the opportunity arises.

The Wild Silence is a luminous story of hope triumphing over despair, of the human spirit's instinctive connection to nature, and of lifelong love prevailing over everything.

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

'So moving, it made me cry . . . repeatedly. Confirms Winn as a natural and extremely talented writer with an incredible way with words' Sophie Raworth

'A must read for anyone inspired by The Salt Path' Good Housekeeping

'An uplifting, illuminating read' Daily Mirror

'Heart-rending. A love letter to the natural world in all its wondrous glory . . . spellbinding' Herald

Praise for The Salt Path

'An astonishing narrative of two people dragging themselves from the depths of despair along some of the most dramatic landscapes in the country, looking for a solution to their problems and ultimately finding themselves' Independent

'This is what you need right now to muster hope and resilience . . . a beautiful story and a reminder that humans can endure adversity' Stylist

'The landscape is magical: shapeshifting seas and smugglers' coves; myriads of sea birds and mauve skies. Raynor writes exquisitely. . . it's a tale of triumph; of hope over despair, of love over everything' Sunday Times

'The Salt Path is a life-affirming tale of enduring love that smells of the sea and tastes of a rich life. With beautiful, immersive writing, it is a story heart-achingly and beautifully told' Jackie Morris, illustrator of The Lost Words by Robert Macfarlane
