Oh my goodness! This book took me 2 days to read, and it left me in tears! This author has a gift; the words chosen describe each and every scene in a way that you'll swear you've been along with him and his family for the entire journey. This story is engaging, delightful, and even educational in a non-textbook manner. The cover art is gorgeous. Read this book. Give a copy to someone you love.
