I have thoroughly enjoyed Terry Oliver’s three novels.
This is the final in the trilogy as we follow Barney Roper in his quest for answers to the issues of ageing.
Being of a similar age to Barney, I could easily relate to some of the dilemmas of entering the seventh decade.
He is a genuinely nice guy, very caring, and sensitive to the troubles & concerns facing the people he encounters. He & Alice, his wife & the mother of their children, decide to divorce in this final novel.
However, the reader is left with the impression that they will continue to be very much together when their children are involved.
I liked being along for the ride to Vancouver, London, China & West Africa. It was like being on a private tour with Barney as the guide. The descriptions of West Africa were enlightening, and made me appreciate my safe & comfortable environment.
I hope there will be another novel in the future. Terry Oliver has a unique way of drawing you into the story and his characters are so likeable!
