  • Excellent Read

    Really enjoyed this book - I read the Salt Path earlier this year and loved it especially in this current climate that the world finds itself in!! Raynor is an excellent author and I find her books very comforting.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Faith, trust and love...

    NO SPOILERS I have read Raynor Wynn’s The Salt Path and really enjoyed it so I was looking forward to reading her subsequent book. The Salt Path is very much a journal, a style which I always like and The Wild Silence is more of a memoir, giving the story before the Salt Path walk, the reason for writing it down (which is so moving) and continuing after it; so although there is another epic walk towards the end of the book, it is not the focus. Wynn’s writing style is fast to read and flows with ease. She writes with enthusiasm, passion, conviction and total honesty; and boy does she know her stuff! Some of the writing is so descriptive that I was there, in a field, on a cliff, in a river, beside a glacier. I could smell the rain and feel the grass. Theirs is an interesting tale. Ray and Moth have led a far from ordinary life but the main theme of this book is the importance of a connection with nature and the effect this has on all aspects of our lives, in this case, particularly on Moth’s physical health, leading to him “sidestepping” the degenerative disease from which he suffers. I suspect writing at this level can be a beneficial connection itself, yet I have to confess, there is so much detail that I speed read some of it. The relationship between Ray and Moth is beautiful and being allowed to know their full story is something of a privilege. But for me, the relentless repetition of the importance of connection became tedious. Over and over again, even within the same paragraph, Wynn repeats it. I was beginning to say, sometimes out loud, “OK…I get it!” All that said, this is a tale of faith, trust and love, written with pathos and, in places, sheer brilliance.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • A hard act to follow

    At times it jumped about in a confusing way. I loved The Salt Path and was hoping this would live up to those high standards. Maybe it was written too soon to please the publishers? That said there are still magical moments that make you feel part of their journey and I hope there will be another book about their new life bringing life and nature back to their new venture.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Essential Reading

    There is so much to empathise with in her writing. Her struggle to find her place in a world which at times seems to have turned against her is so acutely observed but there is no hint of self-pity. Her description of the natural environment and the importance of it to our mental and physical well-being should be essential reading for all those decision-makers who have the power to enhance our lives.
