"Entrancing...sparkles with lyrical imagery" Miriam Darlington, BBC Wildlife

Karen Lloyd takes us on a deeply personal journey around the 60 miles of coastline that make up 'nature's amphitheatre'. Embarking on a series of walks that take in beguiling landscapes and ever-changing seascapes, Karen tells the stories of the places, people, wildlife and history of Morecambe Bay.

So we meet the Queen's Guide to the Sands, discover forgotten caves and islands that don't exist, and delight in the simple beauty of an oystercatcher winging its way across the ebbing tide.

As we walk with Karen, she explores her own memories of the bay, making an unwitting pilgrimage through her own past and present, as well as that of the bay. The result is a singular and moving account of one of Britain's most alluring coastal areas.

Review:

'Karen Lloyd's The Gathering Tide creates its own kind of song-line along the edge of one of England's last and richest wilderness areas -Morecambe Bay. The writing in her cycle of stories about humans and nature is full of earthy realism, authentic observation and quiet lyricism. It is a hugely impressive debut.' --Mark Cocker, author & naturalist

'This entrancing journey leads through the land and seascapes of the unnerving, unsettling and incredible Morecambe Bay. Lloyd's exquisite descriptions take us through the seasons ... with a forensic attention to detail that sparkles with lyrical imagery, mapping the history of the shores and sands of this endlessly fascinating bay.' --Miriam Darlington, BBC Wildlife

'Undeniably beautiful writing ... Lloyd's lyrical prose is smooth, like a pebble softened by the tide... A tribute by a gifted writer to the place she calls home.' --Kate Feld, Caught by the River
