Back Lands magazine for outdoor enthusiasts has featured Robin Hawke and her outfitting business several times. When her friend, Josie Whittle, the editor-in-chief of the magazine, asks Robin to take a group of writers and photographers out for a week Robin is happy to do it until she finds out that one of the writers going on the trip has never even been camping, let alone gone on a multi-day hike.
After getting fired from a business magazine, her life in ruins, and forced to go home to Colorado where her father has her under his thumb, Marianne Jones is lucky to be writing for anyone. Her new boss at Back Lands magazine, Josie, insists Marianne go out on a weeklong hike with some other writers and photographers from the magazine. The only hiking Marianne does is at the mall, and she's never been camping, so she is not happy about this trip.
Marianne makes Robin mad before the hike even starts, and Robin assumes Marianne is just another snooty socialite forced to work by her parents. Both women try to ignore the sparks flying between them on the trails in vain. These two women with nothing in common, except broken hearts, are thrown together by fate. Can they find common ground, or will tragedy take away the chance for them to find out what they could have had?

A Hike of a Lifetime
Robin Hawke runs an outfitting business and takes groups on hikes or hunting in the mountains of the Indian Reservation that is her home. Back Lands magazine has booked a lot of trips and Josie Whittle, Editor, asks her to take her newest writer on her first home and camping trip. Marianne Jones was fired for her last job because she wouldn’t reveal a source for her latest story. Two women with nothing in common clash and broken hearts need to find healing and love to the mountains. Great performance and story. Recommend.
Any hiking books so far I loved...
I don’t hike myself but for some reason which eludes me I like reading/listening to hiking books and this one was an excellent one.
