Catherine Anderson and Angus McDonald are both restless souls - inverterate travellers, at home everywhere and nowhere. When they first meet, in a small hill town in the Himalayas, she thinks he is rude, mistaking his shyness for arrogance. He thinks she is idealistic and naive, and unlikely to remain past the next monsoon. After years without contact, Catherine dreams of Angus, and within a few days receives a message from him. Though he is in Melbourne and she in London, Catherine feels a profound certainty that their lives are about to converge. The End of All Our Exploring is an unconventional love story, set against a backdrop of some of the world's most breathtaking scenery, but it is also a young woman's lament for all she has lost, a meditation on grief and a courageous attempt at acceptance and understanding.
