This is fascinating material, and listening to this could change how you look at and deal with life. Once I started listening, I did not want to stop. I will definitely be re-listening to this over the years.
I really enjoyed listening to this book. Although I found it a little slow in the beginning, it ended up pulling me in. By the time I reached the end, I was sorry it was over.
I think it is awesome that the author researched this "aunt" of his, the "Saint of Cabora", and told her story. According to his end-notes, most of the details in the story are based on actual diary/journal entries, eye-witness acounts, as well as information he was able to get from family members. The book is very well researched. I enjoyed the bits of herbal & healing folklore in the story, portrayed through the healer, Huila.
This is definitely a book to enjoy.
I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this book and will no doubt listen again at some point in the future. The plot is very interesting and gives some helpful insights into some historical aspects of WWII in England. The story does not move exceptionally fast, yet it draws the reader in and keeps you wanting to hear more. I wanted it to keep going after I got to the end... I thought it was well-read and would definitely recommend it.
