'Writing that easily equals that of the Booker-winning Richard Flanagan...[and] as readable and gripping as any thriller.' - The TimesI've gone. I've never seen the water, so I've gone there. I will try to remember to come back.Etta's greatest unfulfilled wish, living in the rolling farmland of Saskatchewan, is to see the sea. And so, at the age of eighty-two she gets up very early one morning, takes a rifle, some chocolate, and her best boots, and begins walking the 2, 000 miles to water. Meanwhile her husband Otto waits patiently at home, left only with his memories. Their neighbour Russell remembers too, but differently - and he still loves Etta as much as he did more than fifty years ago, before she married Otto.

“Quirky Perfection!! :)”

Finished this book within a few days of picking it up. The lack of speech marks added to the quirkiness of the story (which to me was the first book of this kind I had read). I built up theories and possible endings... More

“A sweet and magical story”

Rather like a mid-Western Harold Fry Etta sets out to visit the sea she has never seen. The novel darts to and fro between her journey and her past and has some very poignant moments. It does seem, however, to be a... More
