in an honest flowing style and the resultant story surrounding this civil engineer

reading. The vivid detail is the factor that makes it so enthralling.
- ALBANY ADVERTISER.
This husband and wife account
introduces a number of strong characters who have had an impact on their lives.
Rather than keeping their life experiences to themselves they impart the wisdom
they have learnt, and awaken the reader's conscience to listen to the simple pleasures
and needs of one's own life. The pitfalls and achievements they encounter on the
way could be synonymous with our own lives.
LLOYD, WORDSWORK EXPRESS:
It is a story of hardship, of friendship, a story
of how faith can overcome the hurdles of life, set against some very familiar
backgrounds. It explains how our lives overlap, demonstrates our dependence one
on the other. It tells the story of life's little miracles. It restores one's
faith in the Bigger Picture. It is most strongly recommended reading.
- KAYE CAPORN, EDITOR
The authors resist the temptation
to only tell the good bits. This gives an authenticity seldom seen and makes 'AFTER
Voice from the Stars' come to life.
I feel privileged to have have been a part of this narrative.
I recall the family highs and lows, joys and sadnesses, the little and the plenty.
The preservation of its detail through diaries and letters has prompted a thrilling
and accurate record.
