About this book

The Great Storm of 1987 is etched firmly into the national memory. Everyone who was there that night remembers how hurricane force winds struck southern Britain without warning, claiming eighteen lives, uprooting more than fifteen million trees and reshaping the landscape for future generations. Thirty years on, the discovery of an old photograph inspires the author to make a journey into that landscape: weaving her own memories and personal experiences with those of fishermen and lighthouse keepers, rough sleepers and refugees, she creates a unique portrait of this extraordinary event and a moving exploration of legacy and loss.

Media reviews

"Tamsin Treverton Jones is obviously a countrywoman with much love of the nature around her. Interspersed with her travels and accounts of places and events are vivid descriptions of environment, people and animals, as well as her own family history. Her thoroughly researched and informative book throws new light on the vagaries of the great storm."
Times Literary Supplement

"Windblown is as much memoir as history, and attractively weaves in memories of the author's father Terry Thomas, whose mural commemorating the storm stands in Kew Gardens."
Spectator

"This meticulously researched and absorbing account [...] uncovers stories we may have not heard before [...] Beautifully written – you can almost feel the wind blowing through the pages."
Bath Magazine

"A poignant reminder that Britain can at times be subject to the dark forces of nature."
Cotswold Life

"An elegant exploration of the aftermath [of the Great Storm of 1987]"
The Express

"Windblown, which contains valuable diagnosis [...] is most worth reading for its information from Kew Gardens."
– Robin Lane Fox, Financial Times

"Hauntingly beautiful"
