Rosemary is still trying to find herself after divorcing Winston and acts like a dysfunctional person at times. She flits around trying not to think about her own life failures or what she wants in order to be happy. Instead she uses Kal as a distraction and then brings him along on her path of trying to regain her balance.
Kal was a strong advocate of shutting down Everest and unionizing the Sherpa's as a whole. He knows that their economy would greatly benefit from a change and that they could also provide an eco benefit by limiting the number of climbers, etc. His dreams shatter in front of him and he feels as hopeless and despondent as Rosemary. He goes along with her because something about her draws him in.
Rosemary is the older woman in this story but she acted like the younger one. She wanted to provoke Kal but didn't like it when the tables were turned. She wanted to determine where they were going, who they were going to see and didn't even bother asking him if he wanted to do any of it. In fact, she knew at times he was unhappy with what they were doing but decided her wants were more important. She was pretty selfish most of this book and I had a hard time connecting with her. Her relationship with Beatrice was rocky at best. She wanted Beatrice to be glad she survived the avalanche but didn't want to own up to her abandonment of her. Rosemary, again, thought she knew what was best for everyone and turned out she was wrong again.
Kal and Rosemary definitely had a rocky start. Their age difference, the fact they were a bi-racial couple and were coming at life from different angles didn't help matters. Rosemary needed to "grow up" for most of this book and it was kind of redundant the number of times she had an excuse for her bad behavior. I did like how she finally came around to understand that she needed to work on herself but it took Kal spelling out some hard truths for her to see it. She wanted to push him but didn't like it when he pushed back.
Overall it was an okay read. The ending still left me with some unanswered questions and seemed kind of slapped together. I received an ARC from NetGalley for my honest review.
