‘Marram is a story about love – love for a string of windswept islands, for their people and wildlife, for a couple of shaggy ponies and for a lost and parent. With an affectionate eye for the smallest detail and an indulgent ear for the softest lament, Leonie Charlton does them all proud.’ -John Keay, author and presenter ‘Leonie has conjured a memorably magical world of nature and wildlife, places and people, that lingers in the imagination long after finishing the book. You don’t have to like ponies or wild islands to enjoy reading Marram, but for those who do, this book will become a special treasure.’ -Juliet Blaxland, author of The Easternmost House ‘Tried by nature’s elemental rawness, washed with fear and despair, Marram is Leonie Charlton’s telling of a gruelling journey as she wrestles with the ragged memories left by her mother’s untimely passing.’-Alastair McIntosh, author of Poacher’s Pilgrimage Seven years after her mother’s death, Leonie Charlton is still gripped by memories of their fraught relationship. In May 2017, Leonie trekked through the Outer Hebrides in the company of a friend and their Highland Ponies in search of closure. When Leonie’s pony has a serious accident, she begins to realise that finding peace with her mother is less important than letting go. Marram is a book for anyone who loved Amy Liptrot's The Outrun or Cheryl Strayed's Wild.
