Such a moving and uplifting story. In our times of war and the true meaning of freedom, this book brings so much hope.
Extremely well written, powerful and full of emotion. A book to ponder over and over in these times of ours.
Symbolic and poetic, a must read. A reminder to cherish the moments we have and help others do the same.

A book to ravish. The details and depth just want to make you want to get out in the world and travel.
Makes you want to keep searching for meaning in your life.
Worth reading again.
