Janet Minshull grew up in Kentish seaside town with her six sisters and brother playing 'imagine' games and writing prize winning compositions in school. After the failure of her early marriage, she married her graphic designer boss and has lived happily ever after, working together in the advertising business in Canterbury, adopting cats and dogs and walking wherever and whenever they could. After a year of dithering, at the toss of a coin, they sold the business and moved to the Lake District where her husband is now a professional artist and Janet manages an idyllically located hotel on the shores of Ullswater â€“ a perfect job for a writer, providing interesting characters and four winter months of writing time.
Janet, who has a step-daughter, three step-grandchildren and a profusion of nephews and nieces, finds that her fascination for people-watching, social history and the environment constantly feeds her hyper-active imagination.
If you've ever had to reasses your life or decide upon a future path then you'll enjoy this. A lovely story about a woman who decides to escape on her own to walk the Coast to Coast walk across North England rather than accompany her husband on one of his trips. As she crosses the countryside we learn more about her stifling marriage and past. When she meets another walker who is clearly attracted to her, the suspense is almost unbearable as we await her decision on which path to take.
