Walking Home is an intimate ramble through the lush Ontario countryside as Lynda and husband Doug set out to become the first to walk the 127-km Guelph to Goderich Rail Trail. Laugh-out-loud funny and poignant in turn, Walking Home is a love story amidst deer flies, detours and the sweltering heat of an Ontario summer. Untangling the rich history of the trail and towns along the way, the two aging hikers discover the meaning of home and just how difficult it can be to let go.
Praise for Walking Home:
"Funny, touching, heart-wrenching and true-blue. I enjoyed the read every single step of the way. It is a tremendous story — well penned — engaging and well worth the read.
