At the age of 30, Amy Liptrot finds herself washed up back home on Orkney. Standing unstable on the island, she tries to come to terms with the addiction that has swallowed the last decade of her life.
As she spends her mornings swimming in the bracingly cold sea, her days tracking Orkney's wildlife, and her nights searching the sky for the Merry Dancers, Amy discovers how the wild can restore life and renew hope.

Slow to Start But Picks Up Brilliantly
The narrator's recovery among her native Orkney islands. She made recovery a combo of hard work, being one with nature, and the healing power of the sea
It didn't grab me from the first - her alcoholism and downward spiral were dull and uninspiring. She told me nothing new. But her return home really picked up the pacing of the book. Counting the birds was terrific.
The narrator of course.
Life on the Orkneys. I may visit.
I want to start over at the beginning.
