At the age of sixteen, Clover Stroud’s mother had a catastrophic riding accident, and Clover’s incredibly happy family life fell apart. In her unique, emotionally raw prose, Clover Stroud, (Emma Bridgewater’s younger sister) writes about her search for somewhere new she can call home. The journey takes her far and wild until a most extraordinary conclusion that is both explosive as well as deeply thought-provoking.
Clover gallops across England’s idyllic Cotswolds to boomtown Dublin and the traveller rave scene of Ireland in the 2000s, across the plains of Texas where she overcomes local suspicions to become a well-respected cowgirl. Then finally she travels to the war-torn South Caucasus of Russia.
A respected national newspaper journalist and writer, Clover’s lyrical, shocking and sexy memoir is ultimately an uplifting story of love and survival.
