A quest is a journey towards a goal used in mythology and literature as a plot. Quests can be found in the folklore of every nation. In literature, the objects of quests require great exertion on the part of the hero(ine)*, and the overcoming of many obstacles, typically including much travel.
The first part of your quest, should you decide to make it, is to go read what our heroine has to say about the journey. When a reader you know, love and trust tells you a book is a 6 out 5 you sort of stand up and take notice.
