Cara and Grace are two young women. Cara is a medical doctor who has an exciting career, a loving marriage and a beautiful six-month-old son, Noah. Grace is a teenage girl – young, fit and talented, embarking on all that life has to offer her. When each one of them is devastated by personal tragedy, neither one knows how to rebuild their own life.But when Grace has the idea, inspired by the Reach For A Dream Foundation, to cycle across South Africa from Durban back to her home city of Cape Town, Cara appears to be the most qualified companion for her.
‘Miles to Go’ is a story about the journey that these companions take – a journey of many physical miles but also one that is filled with just as many emotional milestones as they embark on their journey back to wholeness.
It is filled with the struggles and fears, tears and more than a little laughter of two young women who are trying to overcome their loss and find their way back to life, in defiance of the hands that they have been dealt.
About the author:
Miles To Go is Cathy Donald’s second work of fiction. Cathy is a medical doctor and has always dabbled in the spoken word that led to her involvement
in Speech and Drama throughout her school career, and in 1976, during her Grade 11 year, she became an associate of the Trinity College of
London in teaching Speech and Drama.
Cathy’s first book The Reluctant Cuckoo addressed the contentious topic of adopting across different cultures and backgrounds.
