‘A beautiful, brilliantly written book on grief, self-discovery and swimming’ EMMA GANNON’Immersive and compelling’ CATHY RENTZENBRINK*SHORTLISTED FOR THE NERO BOOK AWARDS 2023*In a bid to fill the empty space left by her brother’s death, Freya sets out with her friend Miri to swim every tidal pool in Britain in a year. The adventure takes them from a pool hidden in the cliffs of Polperro to the quarry lagoon of Abereiddi, via the Trinkie in northernmost Scotland where locals meet each year to give the pool wall a fresh lick of paint. The further Freya travels, the closer she finds herself to memories of her brother. With every swim, the challenge becomes more than just a way to explore the country’s furthest reaches, but a journey of self-discovery.

The Tidal Year is a story about the healing power of wild swimming and the space it creates for reflection, rewilding and hope. An exploration of grief in the modern age, it’s also a tale of female rage, sisterhood and falling in love after loss.

——- ‘Some of the best writing on wild swimming that I have encountered’ MARIANNE LEVY’I found myself blinking back tears’ HARPER’S BAZAAR’A poignant, funny tribute to the complex, tidal nature of grief’ JADE ANGELES FITTON’Funny and moving, brimming with bracingly refreshing uncertainty’ POLLY ATKIN
