Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Grennan’s work is by turns self-pokingly humorous, exciting, and inspiring.” Publishers Weekly
“[Grennan] details the incredible stories of families caught in a civil war, frightened and anxious about the future of their children, and the endearing resiliency of the children themselves, many of them traumatized by war, enslavement, and separation from their families.”  Booklist
“With an animated voice, Conor Grenann adds another level of depth and poignancy to the story of his efforts to help Nepalese children…In narrating the book, he conveys a palpable sincerity in his tone and emphasis. In particular, one can hear the smile in his voice when he relays anecdotes about the children.” AudioFile
“Grennan is the rare author who can aptly and skillfully tell of his own awakening; he beautifully and melodiously renders the many accents he encountered along his journey. Listeners will be moved; for anyone interested in Nepalese history, humanitarian work, and meaningful self-betterment.”   Library Journal
