      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Read it and see if they get there !

      This book revolves around Clemmie and Emily Kingsley who are twenty-something cousins , who at their aunts funeral are faced with a challenge that will lead to a significant legacy should they succeed , this ends up with the two of them having to travel to Mali , Clemmie is the more adventurous of the two and looks forward to the challenge with gusto , whilst Emily travels with a bit more reluctance

      The differing attitudes continues throughout the book with alternative chapters telling the story from both girls view point, through out the story interjection is made by the great aunt's companion Beryl , who provides a bit of a more darker side to the story from some 50 years previously , and it is obvious that these memories now have caused Beryl some consternation

      The method of story telling actually makes you feel as if you are traveling through the desert and can feel the bumps of the jeep as they travel , and slowly begin to discover why they must complete the journey

      The characters are well developed throughout the book , which is quite a moving story and quite a compelling read with the last quarter being really exciting

      I have to say I havnt ever read any of Challis's books before and only picked it up because it was on offer in WH Smiths as two books for £5.00 the price on Amazon is currently £2.75

      Its not my normal choice of book and would say its more one for the female market who will enjoy the story , and the escapism of being transported to the desert which is really well described , it is obvious the author did a lot of research for the book and by the descriptions has a real affinity with the people of the region
