Review from FNQ

Bev Blaauw's review of The Promise of Iceland has appeared in The Cairns Post. Her review includes these comments:

Kari’s descriptions of Iceland are so beautiful that one is tempted to pack up and go there. He makes the long, dark winters sound just as enticing as the extraordinary Northern Lights. Each time Kari returns to Iceland he finds new ways of viewing life.

Finally, Kari meets his family, stops blaming his father and learns to live as an Icelander in Iceland, before returning to Brisbane to write so eloquently about his other home.

Verdict : Adventure, history, family, love and sheer bliss.
