Reviews

"A fine book... Transparent, undeceived prose" -- Kate Kellaway * Guardian *
"Compelling ... well-contextualised, sharply-observed, clued up, environmentally aware and deeply researched" * Independent *
"With clarity and candour, in the natural voice of a modern storyteller, she tells what she sees at the intersection of herself and whatever is delivered to her by the tide" * The Times *
"Sprackland has a wonderfully curious eye" * Financial Times *
"Simply gorgeous ... One of the finest piece of writing, nature or otherwise, to emerge this year" * Big Issue *
