So I loved the idea of this book, and my 2 stars are for the lovely portrayal of Northumberland and the quality of the nature writing. She evokes the lives of her 4 amazing daughters, The Mermaid, The Whirlwind, The Caulbearer and The Littlest One with honesty, compassion and clarity.

Their tribe is a force that is at once fragile, but also characterised by strength and togetherness. How important it was to find that familiar glow, sometimes in amongst deep cloud, sometimes a bright summer night sky.Five stars are not enough for this amazingly powerful book: how mental health of children, the author's own health following recent divorce unravels their lives inn the time of covid.

Over the course of the year, the moon becomes her fellow traveller through dark times, and companion through joyful ones and even when the sky is wreathed in cloud, the moon is still felt in the pull of the tides. Throughout the quiet turn of each month she charts the sea swimming, rock pool immersing, hill running to calm her busy brain, and of nature weaving it’s magic, grounding, nurturing and holding the whole family safe as she reclaims herself from the sadness and scars left by shattered hopes; rediscovering and unearthing the woman concealed by motherhood. I really felt the love and dedication the person shares for their children and family unit which was really lovely, but I really wanted some kind of resolution for the author or a more clear personal growth story but it just never arrived. By the time I finished the book, I felt that the little terrace on the lane was a safe place that I, too, could escape to and avoid the world in for a little while.Descriptions of the natural world permeate the novel, charting the ebbs and flows of the family’s life across a whole year. Overall the novel felt to be a contemplation of motherhood and the fierce love between a mother and her daughters. I enjoyed some of the repetitive bits, like letting the cat in and out because it felt like the chance to get quite familiar with her and her daily life.
