Feedback from a Beta Reader

… as the book unfolds, I am getting to know you more. I am particularly enjoying the parts where you open up about your history (your mum in particular) and seem to be sharing a little about your memories of her and your own pathways in comparison to hers (social change / women’s independence / role changes) using her diary entries as catalysts. I am loving the parts where I can actually smell the aromas of your travel, hear the sounds, experience your fear and pain, see the colours around you and feel the texture of the landscape in my hands, as this is the essence of travel … Your writing makes me want to get to know you better, so it must be good!  … You have obviously put great time, effort and thought into the books and your passion and sense of adventure shine through.
