Description
Eighty-three-year-old Etta has never seen the ocean, so early one morning she takes a rifle, some chocolate, and her best boots and begins walking the 3,232 kilometers from Saskatchewan, eastward to the sea. Etta's husband Otto awakens to a brief note explaining her absence, while their neighbor Russell decides that he must go after the woman he has loved from afar. Emma Hooper's 2015 debut novel has been hailed as a "sweet, disarming story of lasting love" (NYTBR) and "a quietly powerful story whose dreamlike quality lingers long after the last page is turned" (Library Journal).

"Drawing on wisdom and whimsy of astonishing grace and maturity, Hooper has written an irresistibly enchanting debut novel that explores mysteries of love old and new, the loyalty of animals and dependency of humans, the horrors of war and perils of loneliness, and the tenacity of time and fragility of memory."Booklist (starred review)
