I love the fact that all proceeds of the book go to further help the children in Africa. The heart of the author shows through very clearly throughout the book.
My editor senses were irked a bit at some of the editing that needed to be done throughout the book, which did lessen by enjoyment of reading. For example, there are punctuation marks outside of the parentheses, and there is overuse of dashes and ellipses throughout the book. Also, the parts that are included by other people are in italics which are hard to read. In fact, I skipped over those parts because the italics font hurt my eyes. The story read more like a journal entry instead of a book narrative. It could have been made better by professional editing.
Despite these issues, the words managed to bring a tear to my eye at places due to the descriptions of the children in Uganda. The suffering and the abject poverty is strong. It is easy to see how this touched the author and inspired her to write a book on her adventures there.
