Daniel’s heart sinks when he sees that the only person who’s turned up for his walking club is the crazy old lady from two doors down. But what he doesn’t expect is to discover that Hazel is one of the most fascinating people he’s ever met . . .
A gorgeous, warm and uplifting story about friendship, community, adventure and the joy of walking.

This was a wonderfully uplifting and heartwarming read which I thought was actually very inspiration.
Firstly I loved the beautiful Cornish setting and the lovely community that Daniel discovers. The descriptions were really vivid and made me want to move to Cornwall myself. I always like books that feature new beginning so it was fun following Daniel as he rediscovers his old hometown.
The characters or Daniel and Hazel are fantastic creations who I really enjoyed getting to know. They seemed so real that I felt that they became old friends and I soon became very invested in the story. Hazel is someone I’d like to be when I’m older. She’s got an amazing spirit and a lot of courage which I couldn’t help but admire. I really enjoyed learning more about her adventures when she was younger. I thought there was a great message there to not discount people because they’re older.
Overall I really enjoyed this book which I think will make a great beach or garden read this summer. The book had a great pace to it and I felt there was always something happening to keep my interest and when the story was s bit slower I found I didn’t mind as I was so enjoying being in the characters world.
Huge thanks to the lovely Sara-Jade from Simon and Schuster for my copy of this book.
