Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"[A] humorous and effervescent memoir of reflection, revitalization and good wine." — San Francisco Chronicle

At age forty-five, Miles Morland left his high-paying job at the London office of a Wall Street firm and took a leap — actually, a hike — into the unknown. A self-described "middle-aged wreck," Miles set out with his wife, Guislaine, to walk across France, from the Mediterranean to the Atlantic.

Setting for themselves the goal of twenty miles a day, Miles and Guislaine made their way past farmyards and riverbanks, through dusty village squares and ripening vineyards, into ancient walled cities and over sand dunes. And as the hot, dry countryside unfolded slowly before them, the couple looked back with relief — and wonder — at the tense, frenzied corporate life they had left behind.

The story of a walk, a marriage, an adventure, and a dream made real, A WALK ACROSS FRANCE marks the debut of an enormously entertaining writer.
