There is only so much that fits in a knapsack, but there is always room for a story.
Part memory box, part prayer, A sky the colour of hope charts the journey of a young woman navigating loss in its many faces, as she learns to choose her own road. Heavily inspired by her 2018 solo fastpack of the South West Coast Path in memory of her father, this collection is by turns light and aching, bitter and joyful as she moves through landscapes forever changed by the people she met along the way.
The debut collection from this cross-country poet who writes as well as she runs, wonderfully!
