The Online Book, Page 2

The obvious starting point of any world trip, Emma is inspired to make a journey. She begins at Aberystwyth, the coastal Welsh town where she was a miserable drama student in the late 1980s and where, unknown to her, her father had a love affair with a woman he abandoned heartbroken and pregnant in the early 1950’s. Discovering the secret inspires a journey around the world and to other places.
The Book is based on a travel blog made by Emma whilst on her journey in 2010. It was re-worked and updated with support from the Arts Council in 2013.
