A rare – possibly unique – combination: romantic novel meets Everest ascent.
Her own experiences as traveller, mountaineer and skier feed into Rosie Thomas’s narrative, in the emotional pull of the high mountains, the motivations of those who go there – to trek or to climb – and the experience of being in remote places where nature is at its most harsh.
If you’re wondering about any or all of three aspects, read this book. As a female mountain traveller and trekker, they really resonated for me.
The love story? Not so much!
