The Salt Path
The Sunday Times bestseller, shortlisted for the 2018 Costa Biography Award & The Wainwright
by Raynor Winn
I chose this book to read by searching the shortlisted Coast Biography Award list.
Every chapter I read, it touched my heart deeply. The story is about a woman, Raynor, at the time she learned that her husband, Moth, was terminally ill. They also lost their home due to poor investment performance results in their friends business. Feeling hopelessly as homeless, the couple decided to walk South West Coast Path for 630 miles. Every time they faced cold, raining wether, empty stomach, it really sunk my heart.
But the at the end Moth did not gave up. He decided to apply for University and became a student again. Even knowing he was dying, he did not give up living and he wanted to be able to teach his skills after university.
One day I want to follow the same track path along South West Coast Path, from Somerset to Dorset, via Devon and Cornwall.
