This is a great story greatly told. A masterly narrative for a powerful and exciting journey. Anticipation for its conclusion is urgent. What a joy to read!

EG Rawlings. The grandfather I wish I’d had and the one I’d wish to be. So moving, in so many directions. Ian Lavender

It’s an astonishing novel. I’m so pleased all the characters were back with lots of new faces also appearing to add to the continuity of Rawlings life. Five stars – Elite Reviewers.

A really enjoyable and relaxing read, and I so look forward to the final development in 2022. Julian Glover
