“It is always easier to deny reality than to allow our worldview to be shattered.”
- Naomi Klein, This Changes Everything
If you'd like to understand more about the backdrop to our ecological crisis - including the 'free' market mindset, global trade policy, and every crazy decision in between - I really recommend this book. It was written in 2014 and there's a present day follow up called 'On Fire', too.
If you prefer one that weaves Scottish history, together with a modern story, and the stunning Scottish coastline around Slains Castle and Cruden Bay, then I'd say The Winter Sea by Susannah Kearsley may just be the perfect book for you.
