At the car wash!

Every now and then I pick up a book which totally engages me, and needs reading at every opportunity.

Even at “The Car Wash” with the pressure hose pulsating and soap suds playing tricks with light through the windscreen.

The Wild Silence is one such book. It’s the follow up to “The Salt Path” which blew me away back in 2019.

A quick re-cap Ray and her husband “Moth” are evicted from their home on a technicality and lose everything, and i mean everything.

Possessions, sheep, and all at a time when Moth is rapidly losing his health and can barely summon up enough energy to do anything (and he’s not a teenager).

Living of a meagre weekly benefit payment, and with no-one to fall back on they start camping and wlaking along the South West Coast Path covered on various pages of this blog.

Along the way they’re shunned, exploited, and rise from despair to being re-invigorated.

The Wild Silence fills us in on the back story, and the returning health struggles as Moth pushes himself to a get a degree and a quantifiable “skill” under his belt. Trouble is the work within walls and the PC screen is triggering a resurgence of the degenerative illness.

Meanwhile he’s also losing his memory, and has absolutely no recollection of the Salt Path and Ray’s most treasured memories.

What to do?

I won’t spoil it for you, but there are a few twists and turns over the following months.

Bottom Line – this is the most wonderfully told LOVE STORY, all wrapped from in with an environmental conscience, with wonderful twists along the way.

Now I can’t wait for the third book in the series!

£9.99 well spent.
