The Wildwater Walking Club
A NovelBook - 2009
"For the first time in a great many years, Noreen has time to herself - and she has no idea what to do with it. When she realises that she's mistaken her résumé for her personality, Noreen knows that she has to get moving, so she puts on a new pair of sneakers and a seriously outdated pair of exercise pants, and walks. She doesn't get very far at first - just to the end of her street, Wildwater Way - but she perseveres, and when she's joined by her neighbours Tess and Rosie, Noreen realises that walking is not an extreme sport. It can actually be fun. As the Wildwater women walk and talk, and talk and walk, they tally their steps, share their secrets, and learn what women everywhere are finding out - that time flies and getting fit is actually fun when you're walking with friends. Throw in a road trip to Seattle for a lavender festival, a career-coaching group that looks like a bad sequel to The Breakfast Club, a clothesline controversy that could only happen in the 'burbs, plenty of romantic twists and turns, and a quirky multigenerational cast of supporting characters, and the result is an experience that's heartfelt, exuberant, and above all, real."--Publisher description.
