A Year of Sundays
Real-life humor and pathos drive this unforgettable travelogue wrapped around a true love story.
Ed Webster and his wife of 28 years take their 16-year-old cat on the sort of Grand Tour many people wish they could take but never get around to. The fact that Ed’s wife, Marguerite, is blind adds unexpected layers to their relationship and their travel experience.
Vicarious pleasure awaits within! You will be submerged in medieval villages, meet the local grocer in Tuscany and accompany Ed and Marguerite as they sample grilled octopus on the island of Syros. Museum docents and shopkeepers fall for Marguerite and entice her to touch and experience everything. Hikers marvel at this blind woman who treks with Ed along precipitous trails of Cinque Terre, Italy. Waiters smile discreetly as Ed helps Marguerite sort through the eyeballs and tails attached to her bouillabaisse.
And through it all, in France, Holland, Austria, Greece, Italy, and Spain, the Websters prove the adage that wherever you go there you are, and the cat named Felicia makes each place a home.
