In pursuit of a haven from the unrest of urban existence, she launched into a trip to discover the correct plot of land on which to plant a wooden. yet developing this would-be sanctuary proved extra daunting than she anticipated. during this inspiring memoir, Pavey stocks her tale of discovering peace by way of sowing her legacy within the type of a wooden, one tree at a time. Chronicling her fight to transparent away the brambles to make a spot for herself on this planet, Pavey’s tale is either captivating and candid, and every now and then self-deprecating as she recognises her shortcomings as a landowner. via probing her personal motivations and her delight in the solitude and sweetness of where, she stocks her insights into our courting with nature – and our destruction of it. Her clever knowing and cautioning opposed to our romanticising of rural residing forces us to think about the truth of nation existence in Britain this day. With fascinating descriptions of the Somerset nation-state and plentiful with stories of its heritage and population (both prior and present), Pavey’s tale is immediately lyrical and beguiling.
