Etta and Otto and Russell and James by Emma Hooper
82-year-old Etta has never seen the ocean. Early one morning she takes a rifle, some chocolate, and her best boots, and begins walking the 3,232 kilometres from rural Saskatchewan to Halifax. Her husband wakes to a note left on the kitchen table. His brother, who has loved Etta from afar for 60 years, insists on finding her, wherever she's gone.
