Publisher's Summary

The wise, witty and wine-filled follow-up to Two Steps Forward, Graeme Simsion and Anne Buist’s best-selling novel about walking the Camino.

Three years after life got in the way of their long-distance relationship, Californian illustrator Zoe and English engineer Martin have an unexpected opportunity to reunite: a second chance to follow in the footsteps of pilgrims in Europe.

This time, they won’t be walking the famous Camino de Santiago to north-west Spain but the less-travelled Chemin d’Assise and Via Francigena to Rome, the mountainous path down from rural France.

And rather than each setting off solo, they will accompany Zoe’s old friend Camille - who, despite her terminal illness, insists she will walk the whole 1.600 kilometres to seek an audience with the Pope - and her not-so-ex-husband, Gilbert, who sees the trip as a gourmet tour. Then Bernhard, Martin’s young nemesis from the previous trek, shows up, along with Martin’s daughter, Sarah, who is having a quarter-life crisis and doesn’t exactly hit it off with Zoe....

This is a novel about helping the people you love, and knowing when to let go. About figuring out what you really want in life. And seizing your chances, before it’s too late.

Perhaps one step onward?

Having so enjoyed the first book I had immediately downloaded the sequel but found this story lacking in the detail of the walk which had been a lovely feature of the first book. I became frustrated with the politics of everyones relationships, especially Camille.

Loved the performance by Arianwen and Jerome

Listening to the follow up to the first book Two Steps Forward was wonderful I’m a real fan of Arianwen and Jerome and think they make the perfect Zoe and Martin … I also read the book and have to admit I hear them reading the book in my head 👍😂
