Description

Something is amiss in the sleepy English Cheshire village of Pickforth. All his life, the local music teacher has had a recurring dream of a girl screaming his name in a darkened field. Weary of the responsibilities of teaching and aching for the days when he was simply a travelling Country singer, as the years have gone by his dream's become more intense, and now, upon waking from one, he realises he's somehow drawn a map. His best friend, The Gaffer, has a problem too. For years the two of them have enjoyed nothing so much as a quiet pint and the chance to spin yarns about the mythical town of Ecclefechan. But now the village pub that he's owned for time immemorial, The Nook, is falling down around his ears, and it's going to take more money than he's ever had to repair it. So when the local bad guy, evil restaurateur and fireplace fitting magnate Dave "Slaughter" Mackenzie tries to ruin him, the Gaffer makes a bet. All of a sudden the Teacher finds himself preparing to undertake an impossible journey in order to save the village, defeat Mackenzie, and discover whether or not his map really will lead him to the girl of his dreams. Because in The Nook's cellar, The Gaffer has a secret that he's never shown anyone. And with it, the Teacher is in for the ride of his life. He has one week to travel over two hundred miles to Ecclefechan without using any form of motorised transport, and Mackenzie's men will be out there to stop him by any means necessary. And the lesson today is how to survive. Based on a true story, part road movie, part western, and part romance, "The Girl of Your Dreams" is a hilarious, thrilling, and touching hymn to friendship, determination, and country music that you've NEVER seen the likes of before.show more
