- 10+ in stock
Seven years after her mother's death, Leonie Charlton is still gripped by memories of their fraught relationship. In May 2017, Leonie trekked through the Outer Hebrides in the company of a friend and their Highland Ponies in search of closure. When Leonie's pony has a serious accident, she begins to realise that finding peace with her mother is less important than letting go.
Leonie Charlton blends travel and nature writing with intimate memoir in this beautifully written account of grief and acceptance.
