THE BBC RADIO TWO BOOK CLUB PICKA hugely charming, uplifting story that shows it’s never too late for new adventures – for fans of HAROLD FRY, DEAR MRS BIRD and THE LIBRARIAN. ‘Full of grace and humanity’ SUNDAY TIMES’Life-affirming and funny’ GOOD HOUSEKEEPINGMeet Eve, who has departed from her thirty-year career to become a Free Spirit; Sally, who has waved goodbye to her indifferent husband and two grown-up children; and Anastasia: defiantly independent narrowboat-dweller, suddenly vulnerable as she awaits a life-saving operation. Inexperienced and ill-equipped, Sally and Eve embark upon a journey through the canals of England, guided by the remote and unsympathetic Anastasia.
As they glide gently – and not so gently – through the countryside, the eccentricities and challenges of canalboat life draw them inexorably together, and a tender and unforgettable story unfolds. Disarmingly truthful and narrated with a rare, surprising wit, THREE WOMEN AND A BOAT is a journey over the glorious waterways of England and into the unfathomable depths of the human heart. —————————-What customers are saying:’Moving, tender and just a balm for the soul’ *****’Perfect for those in need of an uplifting read’ ****’A warm and enjoyable read’ *****
