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.

"Overall, a well written and read book."
Hearing about the birds on Orkney and other islands.
Can't think of 1.
Hearing about some of Amy's experiences with depression and some of her thoughts, I can relate to.
Overall, this book is well written and read and I found her journey to becoming and remaining sober interesting, but I found it a little boring at the end and I feel awkward saying that about a story that is actually real life.
