THE TIMES NATURE BOOK OF THE YEAR 2019! Shortlisted for the Wainwright Golden Beer Book Prize! Shortlisted for the East Anglian Book Award 2019! If you enjoyed Raynor Winn’s The Salt Path, Amy Liptrot’s The Outrun, Chris Packham’s Fingers in the Sparkle Jar or Helen MacDonald’s H is for Hawk, you’ll love The Easternmost House. Within the next few months, Juliet Blaxland’s home will be demolished, and the land where it now stands will crumble into the North Sea. In her numbered days living in the Easternmost House, Juliet fights to maintain the rural ways she grew up with, re-connecting with the beauty, usefulness and erratic terror of the natural world. The Easternmost House is a stunning memoir, describing a year on the Easternmost edge of England, and exploring how we can preserve delicate ecosystems and livelihoods in the face of rapid coastal erosion and environmental change. With photographs and drawings featured throughout, this beautiful little book is a perfect gift for anyone with an interest in sustainability, nature writing or the Suffolk Coast.

Following the successful The Easternmost House, The Easternmost Sky is also based on the Suffolk coast, known for farmland, nature reserves and the fastest coastal erosion in Europe. By exploring how climate and social changes are already affecting this agriculturally important part of the world, Juliet imagines a very different landscape, with glimpses of the future we will have to adapt to, and demonstrates with lively examples how climate and coastal changes will affect us all. The Easternmost Sky is part memoir, part elegy and part warning.
