Publisher's Summary

At the age of 30, Amy Liptrot finds herself washed up back home on Orkney. Standing unstable on the island, she tries to come to terms with the addiction that has swallowed the last decade of her life.
As she spends her mornings swimming in the bracingly cold sea, her days tracking Orkney's wildlife, and her nights searching the sky for the Merry Dancers, Amy discovers how the wild can restore life and renew hope.

Uncompromising and beautiful

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. A meditative evolution through addiction and regaining control. Beautifully written with its evocative prose, this book will resonate with the unhappy, recovering and anyone in search of where they belong.
