About the book
The Great Storm of 1987 is etched firmly into the national memory. Everyone who was there that night remembers how hurricane force winds struck southern Britain without warning, claiming eighteen lives, uprooting more than fifteen million trees and reshaping the landscape for future generations. Thirty years on, the discovery of an old photograph inspires the author to make a journey into that landscape: weaving her own memories and personal experiences with those of fishermen and lighthouse keepers, rough sleepers and refugees, she creates a unique portrait of this extraordinary event and a moving exploration of legacy and loss.
Please note the closing date for this offer is 25 October, so you have limited time to order your packs. This is open to libraries only, and we would recommend one pack per service point. If you order a pack, we do ask that you ensure the content is used in your libraries. If you place an order that isn't to a library address, it will be automatically filtered out.
