Etta and Otto and Russell and James by Emma Hooper
This 'poetic, poignant" debut features last great adventures, unlikely heroes, and a "sweet, disarming story of lasting love".
Eighty-three-year old Etta has never seen the ocean. So early one morning she takes a rifle, some chocolate, and her best boots and begins walking the 3,232 kilometers from rural Saskatchewan, Canada eastward to the sea. As Etta walks further toward the crashing waves, the lines among memory, illusion, and reality blur.
