About The Event

The Rewilding is an exhilarating and unforgettable love song for our world.

‘A breathless chase thriller with a warm ecological heart.’ Inga Simpson, author of The Last Woman in the World

‘Fiction at its rebellious, fast-paced best with hope as its touchstone, making The Rewilding an urgent novel for our times.’ 

Sally Piper, author of Bone Memories

‘A genre-bending page-turner from an author of the highest calibre: Cameron’s writing is rich, evocative and comes straight from the heart.’ 

Anna Downes, author of The Safe Place
