    Description

    It is 1950. In a devastating moment of clarity, Margery Benson abandons her dead-end job and advertises for an assistant to accompany her on an expedition. She is going to travel to the other side of the world to search for a beetle that may or may not exist. 

    Enid Pretty, in her unlikely pink travel suit, is not the companion Margery had in mind. And yet together they will be drawn into an adventure that will exceed every expectation. They will risk everything, break all the rules and, at the top of a red mountain, discover their best selves.

    This is a story that is less about what can be found than the belief it might be found; it is an intoxicating adventure story, but it is also about what it means to be a woman and a tender exploration of a friendship that defies all boundaries.

    One of those never put down books.

    A wonderful story. One of those books you don't want to end. You want to hear more of their adventure the more it develops. Just when you think thats it...another twist happens...and keeps you wanting more.
    Love the friendship they develop and the discovery that you never too old or too young to go on that adventure. You never know what lies ahead of you don't take that first step.

    Delightful

    The story is skilfully and subtley written. The characters are rich and real. The narrator does the story and all the characters justice - deep and authentic. Definitely recommending

    Gripping

    Absolutely gripping story. I didn’t even notice where the time went!
    It appealed to the little child inside of me so I’d say this book is suitable for everyone. So sad it ended. I was absolutely captivated. It gets a full set of stars from me✨

    Not what I expected

    I read rave reviews about this book, however, I was not enthralled. There was no real story

    Wonderful story

    I loved this audiobook from the first few paragraphs. It was quirky and beautifully layered and the narrator pitched each of the characters perfectly. I will remember Margery and Edith for a long time to come and will look for other audiobooks narrated by Juliet Stevenson .

    The best

    I can’t even begin to put into words how much I loved this audiobook. Juliet Stevenson brought the characters to life, the story is beautifully written and makes you want to listen to it again as soon as it’s over (I will❤️)
