5.0 out of 5 starsExcellent read!
Reviewed in the United States on July 29, 2019
In the first part of this book this author knits together his characters so carefully and thoroughly that you start to see them as actual people. You hear their thoughts and start to feel their emotions as Mr. Bagliere then takes you on a journey that will keep you on the edge of your seat for the remainder of the book. I did take a couple of short breaks in my reading at the first part of the book, but reached the point where I couldn’t put it down until I finished it. I highly recommend this book and I hope that you will enjoy reading it as much as I did!

This book deserves more than 5 starts. It is well written with great characterizations. The story is exciting and keeps you on the edge of your seat. I would have loved to see an epilogue to know does John make it to Canada? & Is his ex-girlfriend's son actually his child? Answering these two questions were important to me as the reader for closure on this exceptionally well developed story.
For the first half of the story I wasn't very interested. Once the actual climbing began things got more interesting and I became involved with the story. The characters were so interesting and the main characters came alive.
5.0 out of 5 starsA great adventure and romance story combo

An adventure story that doesn't stop with great characterization but takes the reader into the geography and customs of the Himalayas and its people. This is created not only because of great research but because the Author has visited the Himalayas more than once and the base camp of Everest. His personal experience adds to the interest and intrigue of this story and reveals his love and respect for this country and the people that inhabit it. His main character, John Patterson is a man's man who finds himself struggling for his place on the mountain. His rough edge is the opposite to the personality he finds in the character of Michelle Bonheur. Although opposites, they discover common ground in their mutual grief and their shared love of the outdoors and hiking. This is not the first book I have read from this Author and I am a fan. His book, The Lion of Khum Jung, also took place in Nepal. I'm excited to see that On My Way to you is Book 1 of a series, Hearts of Nepal. I recommend this read and I look forward to the next book.
5.0 out of 5 starsHeart warming, educational, and exciting!

From the very helpful glossary at the start of this wonderful tale, to the harrowing storm and avalanche as a group of both experienced and inexperienced climbers huddled in a shepherd’s cottage mid-climb, Ronald Bagliere weaves a wonderful tale that at times left me shivering in the cold on the side of the mountain or warming my bones with a cuppa ginger tea in a bustling cafe in Nepal. Learning about the trials and traumas that John carried as he limped through life after a life-altering accident on the great Snow Goddess (Mount Everest), the reader has little opportunity to do anything less than grow to care deeply about the fearless man who struggled to live a good life at any cost. From the moment I met Michelle in Ottawa, Canada, I knew she would be a perfect match for John. Struggling to come to terms with the death of her husband, Michele is valiant in her quest to live life, and Nepal was the place to do it. As she and her sister-in-law Cam prepare for their trip in honor of Adam, I grappled alongside Michele with the life decisions she was considering. The challenges she and John meet head-on, their fearless determination to survive, and the connection that develops as they climb and coexist with the raw elements on the trail during a storm, left me mesmerized and unable to put down their story. This was the first time I’ve ever listened to an audiobook, and I loved it. Well done, Ron Bagliere. I look forward to your next book.
1.0 out of 5 starsPoor beginning so I deleted it from my kindle library

The first few pages of this book contained a glossary; a good idea but since several of the explanations had words missing it wasn't much use. The story began with a male character who thought and spoke with swear words scattered throughout. I don't think this adds anything to a story, so this one is not for me.
3.0 out of 5 starsPredictable from start to finish

The atmosphere of expedition, the guiding responsibilities and the relationships emerging within a group of trekkers are well described. The fundraising event for Sherpas was a very interesting piece. Unfortunately the writing is basic and the love interest story so very predictable. The male voice of the audible version is very poor at reading the female scripts; the 2 modern active women end up sounding like naff old dears.
