Product Details


“Moving and beautifully written. Read this lovely book.” —Minneapolis Star Tribune

“Readers will delight in Winn’s account here of falling in love with Moth. A must-read for lovers of [The Salt Path]; fans of nature writing should also check this out.” —Booklist

“Winn’s writing beautifully evokes the natural world, whether she is describing a doe rummaging in an orchard or her innermost conflicted feelings. This is a perfect ‘what happened next’ memoir that gives closure to readers of the first book, and which both fans and new readers will enjoy.” 
Library Journal

“A moving follow-up to the author’s 2018 memoir, The Salt Path…Winn has developed a reputation for powerful writing on the natural world. Her descriptions are highly visual, often poetic. There are passages so perfectly apt, melancholy, or achingly lovely that you want to stop and live inside the text…Winn’s talent is undeniable, as is her capacity to locate the profound amid the din of modern life.” —Kirkus

“A beautiful, luminous and magical piece of writing.” —Rachel Joyce, author of The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry

“A thrill to read. The nature writing is beautiful . . . heartening and comforting. You feel the world is a better place.” —The Times (UK)

“Extraordinary: wise, unflinching, exquisite. Profound.” —Observer
