Book Review: Two-Hundred Steps Home
Claire's life revolves around Starbucks, stilettos and her career as an Advertising Account Director for AJC. That is until her boss Carl decides to send her on a mission to visit every one of the 200 YHA hostel in England and Wales as part of a marketing campaign. More used to five-star spa resorts than 'flea-infested hostels' Claire only takes the assignment to save face. It becomes clear to her the 'mission' is a ruse to make her resign.
Together with her hated 1980s Skoda Estelle - another part of the assignment - Claire sets off for Berwick-Upon-Tweed and a new way of life.
Will Claire get used to sharing a room, going without skinny lattes and travelling in an Eastern European rust bucket. More importantly, will travelling the length and breadth of her home country enable Claire to forget her lost love Michael?
Volume 1 of 'Two-Hundred Steps Home' contains the first 31 installments of Amanda Martin's daily challenge on her WriterMummy blog.
"Two-Hundred Steps Home" is a collection of daily installments in the Adventure/Travel and General Humor/Comedy genre, by author Amanda Martin.
I stumbled across this book on Smashwords, and not only did I love the story, the setting, the travel, the main character, the delivery, I also loved the idea... the idea of a daily challenge. It has inspired me to challenge myself in 2014! Either every day or every week... or maybe every month, but at least a challenge.
I enjoyed this one. I've just started reading volume two now. Way to go WriterMummy!
I really enjoyed reading this book. The Author put in some really nice stories and interesting cases.
