I could not put this book down! It is, in some ways, just like a 'Thriller' - what is going to happen next? Truly, this is a most remarkable read and I would recommend it to anyone. A climb of 'Everest' proportions it certainly was with enormous obstacles at every turn. It is a story in two halves. The first told by Victoria's mother, Diana and the second by Victoria herself. I found myself feeling very sad at the beginning then, increasingly, very angry with the ignorant prejudices of some of the people they met along the way. It has a marvellous ending with a thought provoking Epilogue.
'So Many Everests' is a wonderful book full of courage, endeavour, determination AND love! It should be a 'prescriptive' read!
