There are many great things about this book but what really hits you is how relatable it is for anybody who has lived half a life. The book evokes feelings of loving, losing and living. These feelings hit you from the very first page when we are introduced to Jed.
A Thousand Miles from Nowhere goes a lot deeper then many books of a similar genre, but it is not done through shock or tricks, it is done through the raw emotion of the author and her writing.
Saffron has an emotional depth thats can only come from her experiences documented in A Thousand Miles.
As a first time author Saffron excelled any of my expectations and excels above many of her first time contemporaries, she has created something that comes from a venerable, painful yet beautiful place.
A Thousand Miles is the birth of what I hope to be a long and prosperous career in writing.
I highly recommend this book for anybody unashamed to cry!!
This book is excellent value for money and I've been recommending it to my friends who were around as teenagers in the 80's though this covers more age groups for sure.
Really pleased to have purchased it.
