Raynor Winn's "The Salt Path" Book Competition

Win a copy of "The Salt Path", an uplifting true tale of the couple who lost everything and embarked on a journey of salvation across the windswept South West coastline.

"The landscape is magical: shape-shifting seas and smugglers' coves; myriads of sea birds and mauve skies. Raynor writes exquisitely . . . It's a tale of triumph: of hope over despair; of love over everything . . . home was no longer about bricks and mortar. It was a state of mind" The Sunday Times

Just days after Raynor learns that Moth, her husband of 32 years, is terminally ill, their home is taken away and they lose their livelihood. With nothing left and little time, they make the brave and impulsive decision to walk the 630 miles of the sea-swept South West Coast Path, from Somerset to Dorset, via Devon and Cornwall.

Carrying only the essentials for survival on their backs, they live wild in the ancient, weathered landscape of cliffs, sea and sky. Yet through every step, every encounter and every test along the way, their walk becomes a remarkable journey.

The Salt Path is an honest and life-affirming true story of coming to terms with grief and the healing power of the natural world. Ultimately, it is a portrayal of home, and how it can be lost, rebuilt and rediscovered in the most unexpected ways.

Win yourself a copy by answering the question below:

Name the place that's visited on our walking holiday Cornwall's Dramatic Northern Coast, that Raynor describes as "another quaint village that had been a fishing hub in a previous life, but was now more famous for Rick Stein's fish restaurants than for its fish."
