I loved this book! What wonderful adventures the author went on in search of herself really. The descriptions of where she went and all she did were wonderful. A very talented writer claiming her independence. And the narrator did a spectacular job of turning the book Into a real life adventure for the listener.

I think Nina is a brave adventurer who all women can learn something from. She doesn't give you answers only brings out the best in seeking something new, to fulfil a dream, to live a life more fully.
This is a rather unusual book. It describes several journies to the southern fringes of the Sahara, and also provides a lot of introspection about the author coming to terms with marriage and impending motherhood. It's a strange mix but it works. The key appeal of the book, for me, was that I felt that I really got to know the author -- her personality completely infuses the narrative. In truth I found her a very frustrating person but this didn't stop me wanting to listen on. The descriptions of the region are also very evocative and give a real picture of the physical environment and of how life is lived there. Finally the narrator is outstanding. I have often noticed what a small proportion of books on audible are narrated by women, and without question this is the best female narration that I have heard, ranking in my view with the top tier (Simon Vance etc).
