Waterstones Says

A lyrical paean to resilience, the natural world and the inspiring ghosts of the past, Schiller's engrossing memoir details the author's complex relationship with her countryside smallholding in exhilarating prose.

When we find ourselves lost, we all need something to hold on to - to hope for...

After moving to a countryside smallholding, Rebecca Schiller finds her family's new life is far from simple. Overwhelmed by what she has taken on and reeling from the turmoil in the wider world, her mind begins to unravel. And so she turns to her two acres, and to the women of this land's past, searching for answers and hope.

Here, she stumbles on a wild space where she begins to uncover the hidden layers of her plot's history - and of herself. As a new year arrives, offering a life-changing diagnosis and then a global crisis, the smallholding has become her anchor and her family's shelter - a way to keep herself earthed.

“Beautifully written account of a breakdown”

'Earthed' is an elegantly written portrait of a mental health crisis that is both triggered (partly) and healed by trying to care for a patch of land. I was reminded quite strikingly of Clover Stroud's... More

“The best book of the decade!”

This book elegantly intertwines genres. Part memoir, part literary feast, part poetry and part historic journey. So much more than I expected. I usually dip into books but couldn't put this down and read it all... More
