I read this book when people were making demonstrations on several portuguese cities. They were protesting against the speculation on house rental and real estate lobbies, something that is getting truly unbearable in Portugal. What a coincidence! Or maybe not.
We never know what can happen in our lives that can put us sleeping on the streets. But, when you get diagnosed with a terrible disease on the same week you are kicked out of your home, what are the odds that you can still put yourself together?
Well, this couple did it. And the way they've found to survive all this was to do The South West Coast Path by walk, with only a small tent to protect them from the elements.
I must say that this was a difficult read for me, because living on the streets and getting a terrible diagnose are two of my most terrible fears. I have lived one of them already. And was very close to the second. So, I cannot say that I enjoyed reading this book, but I surely admired this couple for their way to deal with such hardships.

It was sent last Friday (the 6th) to a reader who (I believe) likes challenges in Nature, especially if they imply some walking and trekking.
I hope they will enjoy it.

Received this today, many thanks! I even had to check if it's on my wishlist - it wasn't, but probably would have been had I known about it! :) Also the chocolates look yummy. Thank you!!

What a fantastic read this was! I was actually slowing down my reading as I didn't want it to end just yet. Such beautiful writing, such determination for Ray and Moth to keep moving on. Thank you Arvores for introducing me to this author!

Picked the book from the book buffet after a friend highly recommended it.

Thought provoking. How easily can the secure, comfortable middle class life be snatched away and a person shoved to the bottom of the social hierarchy. And how hard it is to climb up again.
