Fearlessness has got nothing to do with being unafraid. It s about doing things anyway, getting on with it, living, whether you re afraid or not.
Fuzzy-haired, free-spirited, cello-playing Catrina is devastated when her lover, Jack, leaves her to go surfing on the other side of the world. Trapped in a dead-end job and torn by his departure, she dreams of running away. But how do you run away when you re flat broke? Luckily, her friend Andrew comes up with a plan: they ll get an old van, turn it into a camper and busk their way from Norway to Portugal, via Nordkapp, the land of the Midnight Sun.
When a tragic accident occurs, the journey suddenly takes on new meaning. As she navigates personal loss and the daily challenges of life on the road, Catrina begins to learn the true meaning of love and courage and, above all else, the importance of following her dreams.
This is an unforgettable story of a journey like no other a deeply emotional and inspirational debut by a unique writer.
