On The Marshes by Carol Donaldson

On The Marshes by Carol Donaldson

£10.00Price

When Carol Donaldson walked across the marshlands of north Kent, travelling from Gravesend to Whitstable, she was still coming to terms with being evicted from her home and the break-up of a long-term relationship.

What begins as a walk away from her troubled past becomes a journey of self-discovery, a pilgrimage in search of people who have chosen to live on the edge of England in this lovely, beautiful waterland. She meets plot-holders, houseboat owners and cabin-dwellers who are all drawn to the watery margins by an urge to escape the expectations, comforts and costs of twenty-first century life. On the Marshes brings us an original voice which weaves Donaldon's own story with others who have made these waterlands their home, and explores the conflicts between marsh-dwellers and corporate Britain, and the different ways we choose to live.
