Eco-Silence: Modern Hermit?


Renowned author Sara Maitland has been building her own hermitage and shares her explorations into the solitary life in the contemporary world.

Sara Maitland had a very noisy family upbringing and, when her children flew the nest she realized she wanted silence. A prolific writer and academic, her work has more recently explored her Catholicism and she now lives on a high moor with no television or radio and only the wind and clouds for company.
