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.

Fabulous

Wonderful book. I loved it right until the penultimate chapter. The ending could have been different for an all round feel good story.

From the very beginning I did not want it to end!

Loved it! Savored it in bits so it wouldn't end! Fell in love with the characters... and with the narrator! Her voice is amazing and the different voices she makes get you even more hooked on the characters and the story. Loved her! I have loved all the Rachel Joyce's audiobooks I have heard and this one too!!! Not only does it keep you wanting to find out what will happen next but it also warms your heart and gives you insights about human nature and people's journey through life with all the things that impact us, shape us, drive us and ultimately give our existence meaning.
