Raynor Winn and her husband Moth were in their fifties when they became homeless. They had invested in a friend's business that later collapsed, triggering a three-year court battle over who was responsible for paying off the debt.

They lost the case, their savings dwindled, and finally their home in rural Wales was seized. But worse was to come. The same week Moth was diagnosed with an incurable degenerative, terminal brain disease.

Distraught and broken, Raynor struck upon an idea - to walk the one thousand km South West Coast Path from Somerset to Dorset. Her book about their journey is The Salt Path.
