"I was in love with a man who courted death, whose life made more sense to him if he pushed at its limits". When Maria Coffey fell in love with Joe Tasker, she knew that he was already committed - to climbing the world's highest mountains by their most difficult routes. Their relationship was intense, and haunted by Maria's uncertainties and fears for Joe's safety. In May 1982 Chris Bonington led an attempt on Everest's unconquered Northeast face. Joe Tasker and Pete Boardman vanished. Maria was left with her grief. Her search for an acceptance of Joe's death and a resolution of all that had been left unsaid led Maria to undertake, with Hilary Boardman, an expedition across the world - to China, Tibet and the Himalayan foothills, as high as 21,000 feet on Everest, retracing the steps of Joe's final journey.
