A good geography lesson. a bad writer
Reviewed in Australia on 19 April 2020
Everything is stereotypical without nuance. There is every trope imaginable even two sisters, one with a beauty that eclipses the other. Blah blah blah. However reading about the logistics of the travel from south to north, learning about the train and the shelters and the dangers along the way was most interesting, useful and moving. The authors writing and the characters left a lot to be desired.
