Description

'A beautiful, brilliantly written book on grief, self-discovery and swimming' EMMA GANNON
'Immersive and compelling' CATHY RENTZENBRINK

*SHORTLISTED FOR THE NERO BOOK AWARDS 2023*


In a bid to fill the empty space left by her brother's death, Freya sets out with her friend Miri to swim every tidal pool in Britain in a year. The adventure takes them from a pool hidden in the cliffs of Polperro to the quarry lagoon of Abereiddi, via the Trinkie in northernmost Scotland where locals meet each year to give the pool wall a fresh lick of paint. The further Freya travels, the closer she finds herself to memories of her brother. With every swim, the challenge becomes more than just a way to explore the country's furthest reaches, but a journey of self-discovery.

The Tidal Year is a story about the healing power of wild swimming and the space it creates for reflection, rewilding and hope. An exploration of grief in the modern age, it's also a tale of female rage, sisterhood and falling in love after loss.
