Read this book if you have ever loved and lost. . . . It will inspire you.” Monique Roffey, author of With the Kisses of His Mouth

Fuzzy-haired, neurotic, cello-playing Catrina is devastated when her lover, Jack, leaves her to go surfing on the other side of the world. Trapped in a dead-end job and torn by his departure, Catrina dreams of running away. But how do you run away when you’re flat broke?

Luckily, her friend Andrew comes up with a plan: they’ll get an old van, turn it into a camper, and busk their way from Norway to Portugal, via the midnight sun. Andrew is one of her oldest friends and they share many of the same passions and interests, including music.

When Andrew is killed in a tragic accident, Catrina decides to go it alone, encountering one disaster after another. She sleeps in her van, gets lost, and struggles to find the confidence to play her cello in front of her growing audience, but meets complete strangers who offer her advice, encouragement, and support along the way. Her experiences on the road gradually teach her the real meaning of love, courage, and above all else, the importance of following her dreams.

This is an unforgettable story of a journey like no other a deeply emotional and inspirational debut by a unique storyteller.

Review:

Read this book if you have ever loved and lost. . . . It will inspire you.” Monique Roffey, author of With the Kisses of His Mouth

"Compulsively readable, Davies' memoir is a travel saga of the best kind: engrossing, personal, filled with charm and misadventures in just the right amounts." Dina Bennett, author of From Peking to Paris

A captivating read about the meaning of love, the transformative power of music, and the harsh and beautiful world we live in. Davies teaches us how every ending is a new beginning, and how our heartbreaks can morph into insights that lead us to a deeper understanding of ourselves, the world, and our place in it.” Rosemary Rawlins, author of Learning by Accident
