Notes:
Etta is starting to forget. But Otto loves her and if he remembers, then surely they can balance things out? Their neighbour Russell remembers too, but differently - and he still loves Etta as much as he did more than 50 years ago, before she married Otto. Etta's greatest unfulfilled wish, living in the rolling farmland of Saskatchewan, is to see the sea. And so, at the age of 82, she gets up very early one morning, takes a rifle, some chocolate, and her best boots, and begins walking the 2000 miles to the water.

This book is a really interesting read - it is like a piece of music. Read the blank pages as white noise! The story veers between the present day and childhood and by the end you will be questioning what is true and what is fiction. It is an easy read - I read it in a short space of time but at the end I felt a bit cheated and disappointed. If you like a happy ending with all the ends tied up this isn't for you!
