Journalist Clover Stroud talks about her powerful story of an idyllic Oxfordshire childhood shattered by a riding accident that left her mother permanently brain-damaged and sent her searching for a sense of home that had been so violently broken.
Stroud’s search saw her on a journey that took in gipsy camps in Ireland, the rodeos of West Texas and the war-torn Caucasus region of Russia. Her story is one of grief, motherhood, depression and the healing power of nature and horses.
Stroud is a freelance journalist writing for the Daily Mail, Sunday Times, Daily Telegraph, and Conde Nast Traveller. Here she talks to fellow writer and journalist Lucy Atkins, author of the novels, The Night Visitor, The Missing One and The Other Child, and of a number of non-fiction books.
