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. Disenchanted by London, Tamsin and her husband leave the city and high-flying careers to move the 500 miles north to a remote island in the Scottish Hebrides. While idyllic, for a time, when the children they longed for fail to materialise, and her marriage breaks down and Tamsin finds herself in ever-increasing isolation. Broken, poor and without friends or family to prop her up, Tamsin must learn to start all over again. A stunning book about solitude, friendship, resilience and self-discovery.
