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.
