            Following the hugely successful Sunday Times Bestseller, Wainwright Golden Beer Book Prize nominee and Costa shortlisted, The Salt Path, Raynor Winn returns with her second brilliant book. This time the narrative explores the difficulties surrounding the return to mainstream life... after a period of homelessness. Recovering self-esteem and trust, in herself and in others, is harder than she expected. Raynor and her husband Moth continue to face his debilitating illness, until an incredible gesture by someone who read The Salt Path changes everything. This book is about readjusting to life after homelessness, but also about recovering trust and self-belief after a traumatic event - feelings that can translate to many episodes in the life of any of us.

            A true story of faith through troubled times that leads to hope, healing and freedom. "Reading Cindy's story is like a roller-coaster ride. Her honesty and resilience is inspiring as she holds the line and holds her faith in the face of huge personal challenges." - Julia Grace...-Singer/songwriter/speaker The young couple set off for a year in Europe. They find work. They have another baby. They marvel as God takes care of their every need. And then... a brutal attack leaves her husband with an undiagnosed brain injury. It's not until they arrive home in New Zealand that the true extent of the damage begins to unfold, and soon, the family find themselves living from one crisis to the next, a young mother managing a situation too horrific for words. And then . . . Cindy discovered the true nature of God. He saw the carnage. He heard her desperate prayer. He had a restoration story in mind. And it all started with a dream.
