Reflecting on family, identity and nature, Amanda Thomson’s Belonging is a memoir about what it is to have and make a home. It’s also a love letter to nature, especially the northern landscapes of Scotland and the Scots pinewoods of Abernethy, home to standing dead trees known as snags which support the overall health of the forest. Beautifully written and featuring Amanda Thomson’s artwork and photography throughout, it explores how place, language and family shape us and make us who we are.
