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.
