About the book:

A memoir of love, loss and healing through the natural world, The Tidal Year is a true story about the healing power that can be found from wild swimming, Bromley’s book telling us a journey through grief in an all encompassing adventure across water.

With every swim, and every stranger they meet in the water, the challenge becomes more than just a way to explore the coast, also providing a modern day exploration into self-discovery through grief, sisterhood and female rage.

About the author:

After, four years, Freya is still searching. Reeling from the devastating loss of her brother, Freya Bromley embarks on an adventure across Britain, deciding to swim in every tidal pool across the country with her friend, Miri. From the hidden pools of the fishing village Polperro to the quarry lagoons of Abereiddi, the further from London Freya finds herself, the closer she feels to her brother.

A writer living in London, Freya Bromley has written for the National Geographic and Financial Times, The Tidal Year marking her debut as a memoirist.
