The Salt Path
Ray and her husband Moth met as teenagers and fell in love. They raised two children and renovated a rundown farmhouse in mid-Wales. They were living their dream when disaster struck. An investment opportunity with a friend went sour and they were sucked up in the ensuing court case, eventually losing their house. Worse news followed when Moth was diagnosed with an incurable disease.
With no jobs and faced with the prospect of homelessness, and mortality, they decided to put their beloved house behind them and walk the coast path from Somerset to the tip of Cornwall in southwest England. The Salt Path is the story of their adventures.
Funny, sad, moving and packed with evocative descriptions of dramatic cliffs and bays, the characters they meet on the way and the challenges of the ever-changing British weather, this is a story of hope. Walking seemed to help Moth and he grew stronger, even though the couple were wild camping and exposed to the elements.
Wherever you are, when you put this book down it makes you want to put on your walking boots and head for the trail.
Ray Winn has just had her second book published. The Wild Silence continues her story with Moth.
