Inhaltsangabe

Brought to you by Penguin. 

When Tamsin Calidas first arrives on a remote island in the Scottish Hebrides, it feels like coming home. Disenchanted by London, she and her husband left the city and high-flying careers to move the 500 miles north, despite having absolutely no experience of crofting or of island life. It was idyllic, for a while. But as the months wear on, the children she'd longed for fail to materialise and her marriage breaks down, Tamsin finds herself in ever-increasing isolation.

Injured, ill, without money or friend, she is pared right back, stripped to becoming simply a raw element of the often harsh landscape. But with that immersion in her surroundings comes the possibility of rebirth and renewal. Tamsin begins the slow journey back from the brink.  

Startling, raw and extremely moving, I Am an Island is a story about the incredible ability of the natural world to provide when everything else has fallen away - a stunning audiobook about solitude, friendship, resilience and self-discovery.

Kritikerstimmen

"Completely astonishing...the fragility of life transcended and restored by the triumphant pull of a determination to survive." (Juliet Nicolson)
