At first I thought to myself, "sheesh, why am I bothering with this? It's just another book about leaving a corporate lifestyle for life off the grid." By the time I had gotten a third of the way thru, I started to realize that I was actually being inspired in many ways!
Because the book almost reads like a novel, the characters have personalities of their own, who grow on you each time they drop back into the story.
Well written with love and personality. Has definitely inspired me to make more

Journey into being

A gentle, wonderfully written, story of a doer who sought her being and found it whilst still doing heaps of stuff. I loved it.
