ACHUKA Book of the Day 20 Oct 2021
“The author’s writing is rich in detail, vocabulary and also in understanding. Those small details all mean something. The various threads beautifully entwine to create a story that contains moments of revelation and understanding for the reader. Each of the different strands and incidental characters all serve a purpose. This is a satisfying combination of epic adventure and coming of age story, of drama and quiet understanding.” LibraryLady
