More > that takes him over rolling downlands, along windy ridges, through remote villages, across ancient battlefields, past abandoned airfields and even -- surprisingly -- by boat through a network of canal tunnels that echo to the sound of cannon fire.

Carrying cargo and living on a boat that wasn't much bigger than a large packing case was, of course, sheer folly. That was Amanda's considered opinion two days before she set off with Jim, whom... More > she'd met only days previously, to do just that. Now, on a dull day in the low season, the need to pass exams and earn a living were paramount and the last year seemed like something out of a novel.
