Take a journey filled with everyday beauty and wonder. A year of looking, listening and noticing across four unique seasons and thirty-five beautifully illustrated poems. 'Dazzling, moving...

'A book that will touch many, and be given often: here, take this, you must read this.' Robert Macfarlane

The world changed in 2020. Gradually at first, then quickly and irreversibly, the patterns by which we once lived altered completely. Across home and town, allotment and moorland, The Heeding paints a picture of four unique seasons caught in the grip of history yet filled with moments of wonder close at hand.

A sparrowhawk hunting in a back street; butterflies massing in a high-summer yard as death rates rise; the moon overhead with a loved one held tight - the everyday memories that shape a life and help us recall our own. The Heeding leads us on a journey that takes its markers and signs from nature and a world filled with fear but beauty and joy too. Collecting birds and animals, land and people together, it helps us look again, to heed: to be attentive to this world we share, to grieve what's lost and together seek a better and brighter tomorrow.
