Have you ever read a book that changed your life? Had a hero who shared your life? Wanted a second chance in life? In the summer of 2012, Paul's life is falling apart: he needs to change things; find some inspiration; he needs to walk out. Paul sets out across Spain to retrace the footsteps of his literary hero, Laurie Lee. He walks from the Atlantic Ocean in the north all the way down to the Mediterranean Sea. Lee made the same journey in 1935 and walked straight into the perfect storm of the Spanish Civil War and described the experience in his rite-of-passage book As I Walked Out One Midsummer Morning. Like so many, as a young man, Paul read the book and fell in love with both Spain and Lee. Paul, like Lee, has always dreamed of walking down those white, dusty roads, lined by orange groves, all the way to Seville. Paul looks deep into the troubled soul of the English national-treasure writer on an emotional journey that stretches to breaking point his relationship with Lee. Paul is the first writer to fully retrace Laurie Lee's classic 1935 journey through Spain.
