'Wintering is every bit as beautiful and healing as the season itself ... This is truly a beautiful book' Elizabeth Gilbert

'A peaceful rebuff to life in fast-forward' Observer

Wintering is a season in the cold. It is a fallow period in life when you're cut off from the world, feeling rejected, sidelined, blocked from progress, or cast into the role of an outsider. However it arrives, wintering is usually involuntary, lonely and deeply painful.

In Wintering, Katherine May recounts her own year-long journey through winter, sparked by a sudden illness in her family that plunged her into a time of uncertainty and seclusion. When life felt at is most frozen, she managed to find strength and inspiration from the incredible wintering experiences of others as well as from the remarkable transformations that nature makes to survive the cold.

This beautiful, perspective-shifting memoir teaches us to draw from the healing powers of the natural world and to embrace the winters of our own lives.

Wintering is every bit as beautiful and healing as the season itself. Katherine May thoughtfully examines the emotional, spiritual, and geographical reality of the cold times, the dark days, and those periods of our lives when things are neither soft nor easy. She shows us that wintering cannot be avoided, but need not be feared. This is truly a beautiful book. -- Elizabeth Gilbert
Katherine May brings a poet's eye and unexpected comedy to this enthralling celebration of our fallow season ... this beautiful book is a reading cure. * Observer *
I absolutely loved Wintering. I found it wise, radical and comforting. It's a refreshing, original way of looking at winter, both the season and the winterings that happen in all of our lives. A thought-provoking joy to read. -- Lucy Jones, author of Losing Eden
Wintering is a gently unfolding delight: a memoir to savour and inspire, and a warm, witty meditation on the darkest seasons of our lives. I loved it. -- Leah Hazard, author of Hard Pushed
An empowering and touching read that will inspire a survivalist spirit on even the darkest days of winter. * Town and Country Magazine *
