Longlisted for the Orange Prize 2007.
This is a delightful, quirky read. You will be hooked on the main character, Ramble, from the start and be very sorry to say goodbye to her by the end of the book. This is the author's first novel and we hope there will be many more to come.

Synopsis

When to Walk by Rebecca Gowers

It looks like just another week ahead. Then out of the blue Ramble's husband ends their marriage over lunch and disappears. With no rent money and her world in shreds, she is forced to reconsider everything she's ever been taught by her screwy relatives, unreliable friends and wayward criminal connections. Should she hide in life's slipstream, or has the moment come to break free?

When to Walk is an astonishing debut, lit up with hope and unexpected laughter.
