Michael Henderson, author of 'See You After the Duration - the story of British Evacuees to North America in World War II'(foreword by Sir Martin Gibert), 'No Enemy to Conquer - Forgiveness in an Unforgiving World' (foreword by the Dalai Lama) and nine other books.
Simantel says it herself, in her opening chapter, 'Born a Cockney girl': 'I learned early in life to use humor as a defence against the shame of being poor and on the lowest level of the British class system - our "station in life."'
Simantel's tale is no fiction, but this first book in a series (more are promised) is nothing short of the first stage of a hero's journey narrative, with all the requisite parts: the protagonist, uneasy in her normal world; the call to adventure; the mentors; and the leaving on a quest.
This book never disappoints, and in the end, leaves you eager to read the sequel.
loved it and cant wait for the next book - highly recomended
