What a great full book. Honestly I love reading this type of story. Wonderful story.
It was like being on the trip yourself. Living it out, whilst sitting here reading it. The hardships and difficulties, so many. This book tells the tale really well, without getting bogged down. A really satisfying ending too. Can't wait to read the next one.
