About this book
A devastating fire followed by a gentle canal trip to the north of England inspires the bestselling author of "Narrow Dog To Carcassonne" to look back over his rather remarkable life.
At seventy-five, Terry and Monica Darlington had done everything they could think of doing, including starting a business and becoming athletes and running a literary society. Lately they had become boating adventurers and Terry a bestselling writer. But in their Midlands canal town in November, life was looking dull and short on surprises.
