Two Steps Forward
|Author:||Graeme Simsion; Anne Buist|
Each looking to make a new start, Zoe and Martin set out independently to walk two thousand kilometres from Cluny in France to Santiago in 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 will these two very different people find each other?
`Crime novels and thrillers depend on strong investigators whose idiosyncrasies make them distinctive and attractively flawed. Melburnian Anne Buist has ticked these boxes with her creation, Natalie King' * Herald Sun * `The hilarious follow-up to The Rosie Project, one of the best novels I've read in ages. There's no sophomore slump here. Simsion brings back some of the best characters and gags from the first novel while also bringing in enough new elements to keep it fresh. It's a funny novel that also made me think about relationships: what makes them work and how we have to keep investing time and energy to make them better. A sweet, entertaining, and thought-provoking book.' * Bill Gates on 'The Rosie Effect' *
Graeme Simsion is the internationally bestselling author of The Rosie Project, The Rosie Effect and The Best of Adam Sharp. Anne Buist is chair of Women's Mental Health at the University of Melbourne and author of the Natalie King psychological thrillers. They live together in Melbourne.
