    Thank you to Penguin Books who provided an advance reader copy via Edelweiss. This is an inspiring memoir written by Raynor Winn, wife of Moth Winn and mother of their adult children Rowan and Thomas. This utterly devoted married couple find themselves homeless at the age of fifty....

    This is my favourite non fiction novel because it's about a mid age couple who tell a true story. It made me cry for them loosing everything that they had worked for all their lives. It also made me cry of how little money they had to buy something to eat on their journey walking to Co...

    After a few pages into the book I googled the author. I had missed before that this is a non-fiction book, a kind of memoir. I thought it was a novel at first because Raynor Winn writes very well. The decisions she and her husband made after having lost nearly everything in their live...

    When this book first caught my eye I picked it up and but it down again, because I thought that the story it had to tell might pull me down at a time when I needed to be lifted up; but a warm recommendation and the news that the author would be appearing at my local literary festival s...

    The bad news came fast, Raynor Winn's husband had just been diagnosed with a terminal illness, they had just lost a court case even though they hadthe evidence that they were not liable for debts and now the bailiffs were hammering on the door to take their farm and livelihood away. ...

    A beautiful book that made me think about what?s really important to me and what matters in my world. Moth and Raynor find themselves homeless, and then things get even worse when Moth is diagnosed with a terminal illness. With nothing else to do, and no where else to go they walk th...

    This is a memoir, following a middle aged couple, Ray and Moth, as they lose their family home in a complex legal battle and Moth receives the devastating diagnosis of a terminal illness. With not much left to lose, they embark upon a 630 mile backpacking adventure along the South West...

    It was the worst of times. Just after Winn learned that her husband Moth had CBD, a rare degenerative brain disease, they lost a court case pertaining to their investment in a friend?s failed business; bailiffs seized their house to pay off the debt. They?d relied on renting out th...

    I wanted to love this book. I?d heard so many amazing things about it. But I struggled. I don?t want to leave an unkind review so I?ll say ? some of the nature writing is beautiful. I just didn?t get on at all with the internal commentary. ...

    Thoughts soon. ...

    I really wanted to like this book. The story has the potential to be a life-affirming, heart-warming work and I love walking but I just couldn't get on with the style which, for me, was flat and monotonous and the tale itself was repetitive and overlong in many areas. I felt it needed ...

    "Winn and her husband Moth, who is diagnosed with a terminal illness become homeless after a bad investment and decide to walk the the Cornish coastline." It sounds horribly depressing, but it's really rather empowering as she is given the gift of time and travel to take measure of...

    For me this is another 'H is for Hawk': a profoundly moving, deeply personal account of a year and a bit in the life of Raynor Winn as she and her terminally ill husband walk the South West Coast Path after losing their home and most of their money. As someone who used to love takin...

    This is the true story of a middle-aged couple, Moth and Ray, who due to a badly handled court case suddenly find themselves homeless, having lost their home and livelihood; and if it wasn?t enough, there are further bad news: Moth is diagnosed with a terminal illness. Contrary t...

    Een ongeluk komt nooit alleen: wat ik als ongeloofwaardig zou bestempelen in fictie, gebeurt soms gewoon echt in het echte leven. Knap hoe Ray en Moth na wat ze meegemaakt hebben (en met zijn fysieke conditie) deze tocht aanvatten en niet na twee dagen terug opgeven (wat ik dus waarsch...

    Disappointing. Too much self-pity for my liking. A great idea and a good choice for the situation, but i just couldn't identify with the people. ...

    I was initially disappointed that this book wasn?t fiction. The blurb does lead you to believe it is. It is, however, very well written & extremely interesting. An autobiographical tale of a married couple in their fifties who, after a series of devastating blows, decide to walk ...

    My thanks to Penguin for picking my name out of the hat for their giveaway! I have to admit to putting the book down for a time because the first 19 pages I read had ripped my heart out. I sobbed as I read them. In one fell swoop, this couple lost everything. Raynor Winn and her hu...

    Either 3.5 or 4 stars. Not quite sure yet. Review to come ...

    Checked this out solely on the cover, but was instantly drawn in, totally unaware this was a memoir. A powerful and eye opening experience, it really makes me think twice about those you pass in daily life. Surprised at their reaction from others when they shared their truth, I realize...

    I received a free digital copy of this book from the publishers/author via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. The Salt Path is a non-fiction novel about how Raynor Winn and her husband Moth lose their home and pretty much the entirety of their income and with nowhere to go,...

    This profoundly satisfying memoir/travelogue could be lodged under more than one category or genre on the bookshelf. It?s an adventure story: in which a middle-aged couple attempt to walk the 630-mile South West Coast Path, camping ?wild? all the way. It?s a survival story: in ...

    After a 3.5 yr court battle, Ray and ger husband, Moth, lose their farm, their home, their livelihood and a lot of their confodence and self respect. Two days later they find put that Moth is slowly dying of a degenerative brain disease. So they decide to buy a tent and walk the 636 mi...

    4.5. Such an uplifting story of courage and determination, made even better if you live in the South West. Some inciteful discussion around homelessness in this country too. It makes me want to walk. ...

    Raynor and her husband, Moth, found themselves homeless the same week they found out Moth had a terminal illness. What do you do after that? Well if you are the Winn?s you decide to pack up two rucksacks and attempt to walk/wild camp the whole South West Coast Path; all 630 miles of ...

    The premise of this memoir was irresistible, and for once a bestseller has lived up to its hype. The story of a couple who found themselves homeless and decided to walk England's South West Coast Path, because why not? As they explained to people who asked, they had nothing else to do....

    For me this is another 'H is for Hawk': a profoundly moving, deeply personal account of a year and a bit in the life of Raynor Winn as she and her terminally ill husband walk the South West Coast Path after losing their home and most of their money. As someone who used to love takin...

    My thanks to Penguin for picking my name out of the hat for their giveaway! I have to admit to putting the book down for a time because the first 19 pages I read had ripped my heart out. I sobbed as I read them. In one fell swoop, this couple lost everything. Raynor Winn and her hu...

    Thank you to Penguin Books who provided an advance reader copy via Edelweiss. This is an inspiring memoir written by Raynor Winn, wife of Moth Winn and mother of their adult children Rowan and Thomas. This utterly devoted married couple find themselves homeless at the age of fifty....

    This is my favourite non fiction novel because it's about a mid age couple who tell a true story. It made me cry for them loosing everything that they had worked for all their lives. It also made me cry of how little money they had to buy something to eat on their journey walking to Co...

    After a few pages into the book I googled the author. I had missed before that this is a non-fiction book, a kind of memoir. I thought it was a novel at first because Raynor Winn writes very well. The decisions she and her husband made after having lost nearly everything in their live...

    When this book first caught my eye I picked it up and but it down again, because I thought that the story it had to tell might pull me down at a time when I needed to be lifted up; but a warm recommendation and the news that the author would be appearing at my local literary festival s...

    The bad news came fast, Raynor Winn's husband had just been diagnosed with a terminal illness, they had just lost a court case even though they hadthe evidence that they were not liable for debts and now the bailiffs were hammering on the door to take their farm and livelihood away. ...

    A beautiful book that made me think about what?s really important to me and what matters in my world. Moth and Raynor find themselves homeless, and then things get even worse when Moth is diagnosed with a terminal illness. With nothing else to do, and no where else to go they walk th...

    This is a memoir, following a middle aged couple, Ray and Moth, as they lose their family home in a complex legal battle and Moth receives the devastating diagnosis of a terminal illness. With not much left to lose, they embark upon a 630 mile backpacking adventure along the South West...

    It was the worst of times. Just after Winn learned that her husband Moth had CBD, a rare degenerative brain disease, they lost a court case pertaining to their investment in a friend?s failed business; bailiffs seized their house to pay off the debt. They?d relied on renting out th...

    I received a free digital copy of this book from the publishers/author via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. The Salt Path is a non-fiction novel about how Raynor Winn and her husband Moth lose their home and pretty much the entirety of their income and with nowhere to go,...

    This profoundly satisfying memoir/travelogue could be lodged under more than one category or genre on the bookshelf. It?s an adventure story: in which a middle-aged couple attempt to walk the 630-mile South West Coast Path, camping ?wild? all the way. It?s a survival story: in ...

    After a 3.5 yr court battle, Ray and ger husband, Moth, lose their farm, their home, their livelihood and a lot of their confodence and self respect. Two days later they find put that Moth is slowly dying of a degenerative brain disease. So they decide to buy a tent and walk the 636 mi...

    What do you do when you are in late middle age, your husband has a painful terminal incurable illness, and you lose your home and the farm that is your livelihood? Raynor Winn and her husband Moth decide not to give in. They walk the 630 mile SW coast path, which runs from Somerset ...

    4.5. Such an uplifting story of courage and determination, made even better if you live in the South West. Some inciteful discussion around homelessness in this country too. It makes me want to walk. ...

    Raynor and her husband, Moth, found themselves homeless the same week they found out Moth had a terminal illness. What do you do after that? Well if you are the Winn?s you decide to pack up two rucksacks and attempt to walk/wild camp the whole South West Coast Path; all 630 miles of ...

    The premise of this memoir was irresistible, and for once a bestseller has lived up to its hype. The story of a couple who found themselves homeless and decided to walk England's South West Coast Path, because why not? As they explained to people who asked, they had nothing else to do....

    Wow! What a book. A real life affirming tale. I read it in three and a half days. I just couldn't put it down. I am Cornish born and bred and come not far from where Raynor Winn has eventually found herself living! So I loved reading about the intoxicating South West Coast, especiall...

    This is my favourite non fiction novel because it's about a mid age couple who tell a true story. It made me cry for them loosing everything that they had worked for all their lives. It also made me cry of how little money they had to buy something to eat on their journey walking to Co...

    After a few pages into the book I googled the author. I had missed before that this is a non-fiction book, a kind of memoir. I thought it was a novel at first because Raynor Winn writes very well. The decisions she and her husband made after having lost nearly everything in their live...

    When this book first caught my eye I picked it up and but it down again, because I thought that the story it had to tell might pull me down at a time when I needed to be lifted up; but a warm recommendation and the news that the author would be appearing at my local literary festival s...

    This is a memoir, following a middle aged couple, Ray and Moth, as they lose their family home in a complex legal battle and Moth receives the devastating diagnosis of a terminal illness. With not much left to lose, they embark upon a 630 mile backpacking adventure along the South West...

    I really wanted to like this book. The story has the potential to be a life-affirming, heart-warming work and I love walking but I just couldn't get on with the style which, for me, was flat and monotonous and the tale itself was repetitive and overlong in many areas. I felt it needed ...

    For me this is another 'H is for Hawk': a profoundly moving, deeply personal account of a year and a bit in the life of Raynor Winn as she and her terminally ill husband walk the South West Coast Path after losing their home and most of their money. As someone who used to love takin...

    Een ongeluk komt nooit alleen: wat ik als ongeloofwaardig zou bestempelen in fictie, gebeurt soms gewoon echt in het echte leven. Knap hoe Ray en Moth na wat ze meegemaakt hebben (en met zijn fysieke conditie) deze tocht aanvatten en niet na twee dagen terug opgeven (wat ik dus waarsch...

    Disappointing. Too much self-pity for my liking. A great idea and a good choice for the situation, but i just couldn't identify with the people. ...

    My thanks to Penguin for picking my name out of the hat for their giveaway! I have to admit to putting the book down for a time because the first 19 pages I read had ripped my heart out. I sobbed as I read them. In one fell swoop, this couple lost everything. Raynor Winn and her hu...

    Either 3.5 or 4 stars. Not quite sure yet. Review to come ...

    4.5. Such an uplifting story of courage and determination, made even better if you live in the South West. Some inciteful discussion around homelessness in this country too. It makes me want to walk. ...

    Raynor and her husband, Moth, found themselves homeless the same week they found out Moth had a terminal illness. What do you do after that? Well if you are the Winn?s you decide to pack up two rucksacks and attempt to walk/wild camp the whole South West Coast Path; all 630 miles of ...

    The premise of this memoir was irresistible, and for once a bestseller has lived up to its hype. The story of a couple who found themselves homeless and decided to walk England's South West Coast Path, because why not? As they explained to people who asked, they had nothing else to do....

    Wow! What a book. A real life affirming tale. I read it in three and a half days. I just couldn't put it down. I am Cornish born and bred and come not far from where Raynor Winn has eventually found herself living! So I loved reading about the intoxicating South West Coast, especiall...

    Wow! Where do you even start with this book? I picked this book up because the theme for this month?s Penguin Read the Year challenge is about travelling (anywhere!). I absolutely love camping. I abolsutely love the South West. I absolutely love walking. This book seemed like a win-w...

    This is the true story of a middle-aged couple, Moth and Ray, who due to a badly handled court case suddenly find themselves homeless, having lost their home and livelihood; and if it wasn?t enough, there are further bad news: Moth is diagnosed with a terminal illness. Contrary t...

    Een ongeluk komt nooit alleen: wat ik als ongeloofwaardig zou bestempelen in fictie, gebeurt soms gewoon echt in het echte leven. Knap hoe Ray en Moth na wat ze meegemaakt hebben (en met zijn fysieke conditie) deze tocht aanvatten en niet na twee dagen terug opgeven (wat ik dus waarsch...

    Disappointing. Too much self-pity for my liking. A great idea and a good choice for the situation, but i just couldn't identify with the people. ...

    I was initially disappointed that this book wasn?t fiction. The blurb does lead you to believe it is. It is, however, very well written & extremely interesting. An autobiographical tale of a married couple in their fifties who, after a series of devastating blows, decide to walk ...

    My thanks to Penguin for picking my name out of the hat for their giveaway! I have to admit to putting the book down for a time because the first 19 pages I read had ripped my heart out. I sobbed as I read them. In one fell swoop, this couple lost everything. Raynor Winn and her hu...

    Either 3.5 or 4 stars. Not quite sure yet. Review to come ...

    Checked this out solely on the cover, but was instantly drawn in, totally unaware this was a memoir. A powerful and eye opening experience, it really makes me think twice about those you pass in daily life. Surprised at their reaction from others when they shared their truth, I realize...

    I received a free digital copy of this book from the publishers/author via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. The Salt Path is a non-fiction novel about how Raynor Winn and her husband Moth lose their home and pretty much the entirety of their income and with nowhere to go,...

    This profoundly satisfying memoir/travelogue could be lodged under more than one category or genre on the bookshelf. It?s an adventure story: in which a middle-aged couple attempt to walk the 630-mile South West Coast Path, camping ?wild? all the way. It?s a survival story: in ...

    After a 3.5 yr court battle, Ray and ger husband, Moth, lose their farm, their home, their livelihood and a lot of their confodence and self respect. Two days later they find put that Moth is slowly dying of a degenerative brain disease. So they decide to buy a tent and walk the 636 mi...

    What do you do when you are in late middle age, your husband has a painful terminal incurable illness, and you lose your home and the farm that is your livelihood? Raynor Winn and her husband Moth decide not to give in. They walk the 630 mile SW coast path, which runs from Somerset ...

    4.5. Such an uplifting story of courage and determination, made even better if you live in the South West. Some inciteful discussion around homelessness in this country too. It makes me want to walk. ...

    Raynor and her husband, Moth, found themselves homeless the same week they found out Moth had a terminal illness. What do you do after that? Well if you are the Winn?s you decide to pack up two rucksacks and attempt to walk/wild camp the whole South West Coast Path; all 630 miles of ...

    Thank you to Penguin Books who provided an advance reader copy via Edelweiss. This is an inspiring memoir written by Raynor Winn, wife of Moth Winn and mother of their adult children Rowan and Thomas. This utterly devoted married couple find themselves homeless at the age of fifty....

    This is my favourite non fiction novel because it's about a mid age couple who tell a true story. It made me cry for them loosing everything that they had worked for all their lives. It also made me cry of how little money they had to buy something to eat on their journey walking to Co...

    After a few pages into the book I googled the author. I had missed before that this is a non-fiction book, a kind of memoir. I thought it was a novel at first because Raynor Winn writes very well. The decisions she and her husband made after having lost nearly everything in their live...

    When this book first caught my eye I picked it up and but it down again, because I thought that the story it had to tell might pull me down at a time when I needed to be lifted up; but a warm recommendation and the news that the author would be appearing at my local literary festival s...

    The bad news came fast, Raynor Winn's husband had just been diagnosed with a terminal illness, they had just lost a court case even though they hadthe evidence that they were not liable for debts and now the bailiffs were hammering on the door to take their farm and livelihood away. ...

    A beautiful book that made me think about what?s really important to me and what matters in my world. Moth and Raynor find themselves homeless, and then things get even worse when Moth is diagnosed with a terminal illness. With nothing else to do, and no where else to go they walk th...

    This is a memoir, following a middle aged couple, Ray and Moth, as they lose their family home in a complex legal battle and Moth receives the devastating diagnosis of a terminal illness. With not much left to lose, they embark upon a 630 mile backpacking adventure along the South West...

    It was the worst of times. Just after Winn learned that her husband Moth had CBD, a rare degenerative brain disease, they lost a court case pertaining to their investment in a friend?s failed business; bailiffs seized their house to pay off the debt. They?d relied on renting out th...

    I wanted to love this book. I?d heard so many amazing things about it. But I struggled. I don?t want to leave an unkind review so I?ll say ? some of the nature writing is beautiful. I just didn?t get on at all with the internal commentary. ...

    I really wanted to like this book. The story has the potential to be a life-affirming, heart-warming work and I love walking but I just couldn't get on with the style which, for me, was flat and monotonous and the tale itself was repetitive and overlong in many areas. I felt it needed ...

    The premise of this memoir was irresistible, and for once a bestseller has lived up to its hype. The story of a couple who found themselves homeless and decided to walk England's South West Coast Path, because why not? As they explained to people who asked, they had nothing else to do....

    Wow! What a book. A real life affirming tale. I read it in three and a half days. I just couldn't put it down. I am Cornish born and bred and come not far from where Raynor Winn has eventually found herself living! So I loved reading about the intoxicating South West Coast, especiall...
