What you think…
Last issue’s interview with Carine McCandless, the author of The Wild Truth, was absolutely riveting (‘I believe everything happens for a reason’, January 9). Sometimes life is stranger than fiction and Carine’s life is one such example. In spite of growing up in a dysfunctional family, she and her brother Chris – who died in Alaska after having trekked across the US for two years – went on to live their lives on their own terms.
From the story it was clear that Carine has forgiven her parents for their violent behaviour for she understands that it’s the only way forward, but it is unfortunate that Chris died before he got the opportunity to reconnect with them.
I am definitely going to get my hands on the book soon.
I Tjust wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed reading the very powerful piece on Carine McCandless. You captured her voice very effectively and managed to make a strong point about raising children. It was truly enlightening. he review of The Wild Truth made for excellent reading. You merged the interview and the review seamlessly and it carried a powerful message about life. Keep up the good work. hypoglycaemia, but that something as inconsequential as a gastro bug could be fatal to him. My prayers are with the family and I hope he gets well soon and is able to lead a healthy and normal life.
