… OUTSTANDING book, I simply could not put it down!
I love history and also geography etc. When I read this outstanding book, I found so much more. In fact, from the very beginning I felt that Christine and I were sharing journeys together… I could go on and on about how much I loved reading this book…

Christine Osborne has a way with words to take you with her in the 1960s across North Africa, innocently wearing her little sundress to the fascinating market places in many towns and cities of the Middle East, some of which she has re-visited more recently. And what changes have taken place in those years. The author writes of a time when tourism had yet to become the huge industry of today. The letters home to her mother have a special poignancy.
Irene Reynolds, Google Books Review
If you didn’t understand the Middle East, you will after you read this. The author is amazing, a true polymath. Fast paced, written beautifully, with all the color and movement of the times. I would love to meet this this woman over a gin and tonic, a drink which features charmingly throughout the book…
