Charmed by The Rosie Project? You are going to love Two Steps Forward.

And if you have ever day-dreamed about walking the Camino across the top of Spain, then here’s the novel that may just have you packing your bags and setting off.

Written by Anne Buist (Medea’s Curse, Dangerous to Know) and her husband, Graeme Simsion (The Rosie Project, The Rosie Effect, The Best of Adam Sharp), Two Steps Forward takes you on a madly adventurous 2000 km journey.

Brilliantly funny, incurably romantic, Two Steps Forward is a story about people in an emotional muddle who need to walk towards personal renewal. Blisters and all.

Make a date with this fabulous husband-and-wife writing team, to hear about their own trek along the Camino (the Way) and how they went about turning it all into a novel.

The people they met, the parties, the problems, the places, the food, the foot massages and the effect on both mind and body of such an awesome walk – you can be sure this will be a mesmerising hour shared with these engaging and talented writers.
