A couple of us at Cygnus read this book at around the same time and loved it so we thought we would include it here. It’s strongly recommended as a book that’s powerful and full of meaning for all readers. It shows that human beings can endure almost any adversity. Just days after the author learns that Moth, her husband of 32 years, is terminally ill, their home is taken away and they lose their livelihood. They have no possessions holding them back, so they make the brave and impulsive decision to walk the 630 miles of the South West Coast Path, from Somerset to Dorset, via Devon and Cornwall. Through every step, their walk becomes a remarkable journey. The Salt Path is a compelling and life-affirming true story about coming to terms with grief and the healing power of the natural world.
