LoveReading View on Coast to Coast

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.

Coast to Coast Synopsis

Annoyed at yet again being taken for granted, fifty-year-old Linda refuses to accompany her successful, executive husband on a Rotary trip. The more Jim tries to manipulate the situation, using friends and their adult children to persuade her to go, the more she digs in her heels.

Instead, she sets off on her own to walk from the East to West coast. The ups and downs and climatic changes of the walk, across wild open moors, fertile dales and the mountainous Lake District, provide time and space in which to reflect on her life and consider her future.

Her outlook is totally changed when she meets Nick, another lone walker. But the walk, like life, is not a clearly defined path. Full of challenges and decisions, it is sometimes an easy stroll, at others a hard climb for little reward; sometimes it offers dangerous diversions, or is shrouded in the mist of past experience. As the walk progresses Linda discovers that life offers more than one route to happiness.
