Two Steps

by Graeme Simsion and Anne Buist

Books are available at both library branches.

"The Chemin will change you.  It changes everyone..."

The Chemin, also known as the Camino de Santiago, is a centuries-old pilgrim route that ends in Santiago de Compostela in northwest Spain.  Every year, thousands of walkers - some devout, many not - follow the route that winds through quaint small villages and along busy highways alike, a journey unlike any other.

Zoe, an artist from California who's still reeling from her husband's sudden death, has impulsively decided to walk the Camino, hoping to find solace and direction.  Martin, an engineer from England, is road-testing a cart of his own design...and recovering from a messy divorce.  They begin in the same French town, each uncertain of what the future holds.  Zoe has anticipated the physical difficulties of her trek, but she is less prepared for the challenges, as strangers and circumstances force her to confront not just recent loss, but long-held beliefs.  For Martin, the pilgrimage is a test of his skills and endurance but also, as he and Zoe grow closer, of his willingness to trust others - and himself - again.

Smart and funny, insightful and romantic, Two Steps Forward reveals that the most important journeys we make aren't measured in miles, but in the strength, wisdom, and love found along the way.
