Boots & Roots
By Anthea Elston
Boots and Roots – a story of family, friendship, faith, and forging a new path for yourself.
Midlife crises take us all in different ways. Some people buy a Ferrari – or a motorbike. Others get a tattoo – or a new partner. I went for a walk – quite a long walk, which became a voyage of discovery. I learned a lot about my family, my friends, my faith, and the places where I grew up, marvelling afresh at the beauty of the Herefordshire/Worcestershire/Monmouthshire countryside. And I gained a whole lot more respect for my body and what it was capable of doing – spoiler alert – way more than I’d ever imagined. Then I decided to write a book about the experience and discovered much more about myself and how doing the walk had changed me.
This is a book about taking those ‘one day I might’ dreams and turning them into ‘tomorrow I will’ actions. It’s the boot up the backside you’ve been waiting for to help you get your act in gear, your boots laced up and to take those first tentative but amazing steps to becoming the person you were always meant to be. Enjoy!
