When Kathryn planned to walk the South West Coast Path, little did she think that she would pass through a "major disaster area" and then spend two days walking through deep snow. However these were but two of the many challenges she faced on this expedition. Unexpectedly, her journey was made during the terminal illness and death of her father. The walk caught his imagination and she weaves her thoughts about her adventure in with her father's final journey. This culminated in his death the day following her completion of the circuit of his birthplace in Portland. The book is dedicated to her father and also to a colleague who died prematurely with mesothelioma the year before her walk. She is donating any profits from sale of the book equally to Dorothy House and to Exeter Hospiscare.
