Overview

Two Steps Forward is the feelgood novel of the year from Graeme Simsion, author of the Rosie books and his wife, Anne Buist. Zoe, a sometime artist, is from California. Martin, an engineer, is from Yorkshire. Both have ended up in picturesque Cluny, in central France. Both are struggling to come to terms with their recent past - for Zoe, the death of her husband; for Martin, a messy divorce. Looking to make a new start, each sets out alone to walk two thousand kilometres from Cluny to Santiago, in northwestern 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 can these two very different people find each other? In this smart, funny and romantic journey, Martin's and Zoe's stories are told in alternating chapters by husband-and-wife team Graeme Simsion and Anne Buist. Two Steps Forward is a novel about renewal - physical, psychological and spiritual. It's about the challenge of walking an extraordinary distance and of working out where you are going. And it's about what you decide to keep, what you choose to leave behind and what you rediscover.

Reviews

`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' *


`I enjoyed every moment of this informative, funny and sweet novel.' * Readings * `The leisurely paced novel explores themes of forgiveness and self-discovery with gentle humour...A feel-good, mature romance that explores what we need to let go of to move forward.' * Books+Publishing *


`A delightful tale of renewal and shedding unnecessary burdens...This is sure to be loved by fans of The Rosie Project and it's enough to put the Camino at the top of your travel wishlist.' * Herald Sun * `There's so much to love about this novel, which is smart and funny and full of the awkwardness and adrenaline of adventure and new romance.' * Whimn * `A novel of mature love and self-discovery set against the scenic backdrop of the pilgrims' walk.' * Age * `I enjoyed every moment of this informative, funny and sweet novel.' * Readings * `The leisurely paced novel explores themes of forgiveness and self-discovery with gentle humour...A feel-good, mature romance that explores what we need to let go of to move forward.' * Books+Publishing *


`Sometimes, you just have to feel-to go with what the Way or a book like this one makes you feel. This one made me feel uplifted. I hope it does the same for you too.' * Pop.edit.lit. * `Fans of The Rosie Project might recognise shades of Don Tillman...Compelling reading...[A] cast of entertaining and eccentric characters...The book's momentum never flags...[An] entertaining and refreshingly unpredictable romance.' * Sydney Morning Herald * `A delightful tale of renewal and shedding unnecessary burdens...This is sure to be loved by fans of The Rosie Project and it's enough to put the Camino at the top of your travel wishlist.' * Herald Sun * `There's so much to love about this novel, which is smart and funny and full of the awkwardness and adrenaline of adventure and new romance.' * Whimn * `A novel of mature love and self-discovery set against the scenic backdrop of the pilgrims' walk.' * Age * `I enjoyed every moment of this informative, funny and sweet novel.' * Readings * `The novel explores themes of forgiveness and self-discovery with gentle humour...A feel-good, mature romance that explores what we need to let go of to move forward.' * Books+Publishing *
