A Review | Wintering: The Power of Retreat in Difficult Times by Katherine May


Iggy's Bookclub, Wintering by Katherine May

We have kicked off our reading this year with what we thought was not only a perfect pick for lockdown but for embracing these chilly months.

Wintering is not just about the cold season, it is all about learning to enjoy the fallow periods of life and essentially learning to love the cold. It is a personal and original examination as to why we as humans need to learn to revel in the days that are short and the light is low.

This book is part memoir and part researched observation that shows us how winter can bring strength and inspiration.

If you’re looking for something that has a healing quality about it, then May has you covered. Beautifully written, May touches on a range of topics like, work life balance, guilt, fertility issues and mental health whilst still being uplifting.

However, if you are someone that needs to be absorbed in something that is completely removed from the idea of self-isolation and the cold we would recommend you go for a fiction pick this month.
