Marnie is stuck. Stuck working alone in her flat - a half-eaten packet of feta and a half-dead cactus her only company - and stuck in a life that increasingly feels like it''s passing her by. Michael is coming undone. Separated from his wife (just temporarily?), increasingly reclusive (a momentary phase), taking himself on long, punishing walks (the perfect opportunity for some good, old-fashioned, solitary brooding). Surely there must be more to life . . . but how to get there? When a persistent mutual friend and some very English weather conspire to bring them together, Marnie and Michael suddenly find themselves alone on the most epic of walks - from the Lake District to the Yorkshire Dales, across the North York Moors and all the way to the North Sea. And as the miles go by and their lives become unexpectedly entwined, what had begun as a fun little weekend away becomes the journey of a lifetime . . .
