"Easy to devour, an incredibly raw and heartfelt story of one woman's wondrous journey of self-discovery." --Porchlight

"May writes about her journey in vivid, exuberant prose..." --The Star Tribune

"A graceful memoir of startling self-discovery."--Kirkus Reviews

"In this powerfully descriptive work, a grueling hike becomes a metaphor for a woman's experience with Asperger's syndrome...Candid, rough, and uplifting, this moving account shines." --Publishers Weekly

"Her journey to understand her own atypical mind takes her across 630 miles on England's South West Coast Path, through pesky rain, cheerful lemon shandies, and interior landscapes that, thank goodness, don't conform to anyone else's boundaries." --Orion Magazine

"As in her bestseller Wintering, May's attention to detail and poetic voice clear a path for readers to pause and reflect. In sharing her experience, she invites readers to examine their own." --BookPage
