Trailing: A MemoirTrailing: A Memoir by Kristin Louise Duncombe
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This powerful book follows one woman’s difficult journey through a series of challenges and events that threatened to consume her. Having dropped all her plans for the sake of love it soon becomes apparent that her new life in Africa is a drastic change to the comfort of her past. Whilst she fights to adapt her life is thrown into turmoil following a carjacking.

What follows is a fascinating look at the complete life of one person from their career to their relationships and how they are all linked and affected by the path chosen in life.

I could not help but be moved by Kristin’s plight, her qualities, faults and struggles endeared her to me. I really like the fact that nothing was sugar coated or written to make Kristen look better, she maintains an honesty throughout that really helps to immerse you in the events she experienced.

Above everything else the take away message from this memoir has to be one of inspiration, that problems can be overcome and that everyone can find their true path in life. Rarely do I feel such strong emotions when reading but this book had a profound effect on me, I would certainly recommend it.
