Coast to Coast by Jan Minshull
I really enjoyed this book, and would have devoured in one sitting except that I fell asleep in the early hours of this morning, but finished during my rare lay in this morning.
This is the gentle story of Linda, who is under appreciated and taken for granted by her family. At what started out as Linda proving a point, became her reality as Linda embarked upon the Coast to Coast walk, though some harsh,yet beautiful territory. Upon the walk, Linda takes the time not only to enjoy and think about where she is walking, but also reflect upon her family, their loves and secrets and her position within her family group. During the walk she mets various people, but one in particular enters Linda's thoughts, and think that perhaps Linda should have been more daring.......
Here a lovely photo of Mount Grace Priory, which features in the book.
