    1. When I first started this book I found it a little slow and a little too full of details about walking, finding accommodation and what they had for breakfast But it surely did not stay like that As Martin and Zoe take their first tentative steps along the walking trail they also begin a romance which is by turns funny and sad, and full of misunderstandings The cover picture says it all There is Zoe on one stretch of the path and Martin with his little cart on a whole separate section Occasi When [...]

    7. Two Steps Forward by husband and wife team Graeme Simsion and Anne Buist was an uplifting and thoroughly enjoyable novel Though completely different from Simsion s Rosie series it contained a number of my favourite elements For example the writing was engaging so that once started I didn t want to stop reading, the characters were likeable, the story well executed and the setting interesting Having walked the Chemin Camino themselves from Cluny in France to Santiago de Compostela in Spain Two St [...]
