A memoir full of heart and soul. Passionate and perceptive, Davies writes with great insight about the past, her childhood, her relationship with the sea and the land. Homesick is a moving, thoughtful and joyful book.
This book is star witness for a generation whose lives have been so injured by the housing crisis. It is funny and furious, tender and true.
Poignant, honest and very timely - a report from the edges of a fraying culture.
A marvel, a tonic of wildness - Homesick is a gently powerful and deeply beautiful read
An incredibly moving book. To find peace and a sense of home between the sea and the stars after a life so profoundly affected by the housing crisis, is truly inspirational.
Superb: a compellingly readable reflection on what it means to be alive in a mortuary, free in a society of slaves, and on place, home, relationship, and our need for the surging wild. Angry and kind; poised and desperate; urgent and vital. Davies can help us all to get a life. We need her.
Stirring, striking and extremely significant. A beautifully written search for freedom exploring social justice, mental health, nature and the priceless value of home.
An articulate and beautifully written account from the heart of the housing disaster, told at the last point we can choose to change.
