Synopsis

She has come to a crossroads – is it too late to go her own way?

 

When she is a child, Chrissie’s beloved father encourages his daughter to use her voice and to overcome her fear of singing in public. Inspired by her parents’ passions, music and travel become Chrissie’s whole life, but after seven years on the road and a family tragedy on a cycling tour of Tanzania, she loses the heart for travelling and music.

 

As her thirtieth birthday approaches, life for the former singer appears to be back on track as she settles in London with boyfriend, Tim. Only Chrissie’s not so sure that she’s the settling-down kind. Her secret dream is to follow in her mother’s tyre-prints, to tour Africa and see as much of the world as she can. As she struggles with her choices, Chrissie becomes intrigued by a newspaper article about the adventurous, unconventional life story of a woman three times her age.

 

But Chrissie is a people-pleaser. Despite her father’s early advice, she rarely has the courage to speak up or to risk upsetting people. Events reach crisis-point, and on the day she turns thirty Chrissie panics and leaves her own party suddenly. What happens next is both astounding and revealing.

    Predictable, with a twist

    For a free download, it wasn't bad for a lazy afternoon. The forward was a bit wordy, the quality of the publishing weak, and the plot predictable and preachy, but you will begin to care about the main character and hope she finally gets it - the message. And, the message is one every young woman needs to hear and embrace.

    A fantastic, heartwarming read.

    I loved this book, it was a fantastic story that flowed so beautifully. I was completely immersed in every character. I found the twist at the end a bit disappointing but all in all I loved this book! I would recommend it highly.
