There's a popular saying that a journey of a thousand mile begins with a single step and after reading The Wildwater Walking Club, this saying proves more true than ever before. Noreen Kelly has just taken a buy-out from the company she's worked at for eighteen years as well as been dumped by her boyfriend Micheal all on the same day.

After a few days of wallowing in self-pity, Noreen decides to go outside and take a walk. While intially she walks in the neighborhood by herself, she soon becomes friends with her next door neighor Tess and they began to go on daily walks together. As each day passes, Nora begins to feel better about her situation and begins to discover things that she was to busy to notice before since she was wrapped up in her job. One day while Noreen and Tes are walking, they pass by a lavendar farm and instantly form a friendship with the farm's owner Rosie. With a shared love of walking and lavendar, these three women decide to create the Wildwater Walking Club.

As the months pass by, Noreen becomes confident and begins to juggle relationships with former co-workers, a self-help group for unemployed baby boomers, a nosy mother and her new friendships, she eventually realizes that work should be something you love to do, it shouldn't define who you are as a person.

I liked that this book was a very fast read; I actually finished the whole book in one day and the characters were likable. I didn't like how the lavender recipes were placed in the book, I would have prefered the recipes to be found at the end of the book so that if the reader was interested in creating some of the items mentioned in the book, they would have the option to do so.
