Description

Zoe, a sometime artist, is from California. Martin, an engineer, is from Yorkshire. Both have ended up in picturesque Cluny, in central France. Both are struggling to come to terms with their recent past - for Zoe, the death of her husband; for Martin, a messy divorce. Looking to make a new start, each sets out alone to walk two thousand kilometres from Cluny to Santiago, in northwestern Spain, in the footsteps of pilgrims who have walked the Camino - the Way - for centuries. The Camino changes you, it's said. It's a chance to find a new version of yourself. But can these two very different people find each other? In this smart, funny and romantic journey, Martin's and Zoe's stories are told in alternating chapters by husband-and-wife team Graeme Simsion and Anne Buist. Two Steps Forward is a novel about renewal - physical, psychological and spiritual. It's about the challenge of walking an extraordinary distance and of working out where you are going. And it's about what you decide to keep, what you choose to leave behind and what you rediscover.show more

Review quote

`A delightful tale of renewal and shedding unnecessary burdens...This is sure to be loved by fans of The Rosie Project and it's enough to put the Camino at the top of your travel wishlist.' * Herald Sun * `There's so much to love about this novel, which is smart and funny and full of the awkwardness and adrenaline of adventure and new romance.' * Whimn * `A novel of mature love and self-discovery set against the scenic backdrop of the pilgrims' walk.' * Age * `I enjoyed every moment of this informative, funny and sweet novel.' * Readings * `The leisurely paced novel explores themes of forgiveness and self-discovery with gentle humour...A feel-good, mature romance that explores what we need to let go of to move forward.' * Books+Publishing *show more
