Book PRAuthor InterviewsRadio

Weaving of memoir and herbal folklore, All My Wild Mothers is a story of motherhood, grief and the transformation that can happen when we reconnect with the wild beneath our feet. In a time of uncertainty, it has something to teach us about resilience, love, and the power of joyful resistance.

At seven months pregnant, Victoria Bennett learns that her sister has died in a canoeing accident. In that moment, her life changes.

Five years later, and struggling with the demands of motherhood, grief and full-time care, Victoria and her family move to a new social housing estate in rural Cumbria. Here, in the rubble of a former industrial site, she and her young son begin to grow a wild apothecary garden: daisy, for resilience; dandelion, for strength against adversity; sow thistle, to lift melancholy; and borage, to bring hope in dark and difficult times.

Stone by stone, seed by seed, they discover that sometimes life grows, not in spite of what is broken, but because of it. All My Wild Mothers is an intimate memoir of motherhood, a handbook on survival and a testimony to radical hope.
