Publisher's Summary

From the New York Times best-selling author of The Rosie Project comes a story of taking chances and learning to love again as two people, one mourning her husband and the other recovering from divorce, cross paths on the centuries-old Camino pilgrimage from France to Spain.
“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 wends 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 other 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. Fans of The Rosie Project will recognize Graeme Simsion’s uniquely quirky and charming writing style.

Made me happy

There’s something about this book that is just satisfying. I was engaged from the beginning. I loved Zoe’s and Martin’s journeys. No, it wasn’t especially deep or earth shaking, but it made me happy. Sometimes that’s enough. I’d read a sequel in a heartbeat.

Simsion’s tales are really unusual,

I didn’t like this one as much as his Rosie books, but I had never heard of these pilgrimages. I love his flawed human characters who muddle through challenges and life’s hardships. The inventive ways they actually come out of despair is heartwarming. The narration wasn’t the best I’ve listened to either, but stuck with it and overall found it a decent listen.
